“All you need is love, love. Love is all you need,” sang the parents of the bride and groom. The processional was leaving the ceremony hall, and it was the one moment, as a photographer, that I wished I had been taking video—just so I could record the sound of them singing. Nevertheless, 15 photos down is a still capture that, I think, does the moment justice.
Erin and Drew are one lucky couple, first of all they have the most incredible family and friends. People who care more about smiling, laughing and having a good time, than about whether their hair has fallen out of place. Erin’s mom said to me, “If you smile from the heart, it shows up on the face.” I laughed and thought, this is what I’ve been telling my clients for years. Hey Pam, are you available to be my assistant at future weddings?
The second point that illustrates Erin and Drew’s luck is that wherever they go, perfect weather follows in their wake.It was slightly overcast on the day of the wedding, (absolute premo-condition for photos), but still warm enough so no one got cold. The week before we did an engagement shoot and it was warm and sunny the whole time. This is uncommon with Victoria’s fickle spring weather.
Okay, I won’t go on too much, but really? When Drew looks at Erin, and Erin looks at Drew, they each get these far-away dreamy looks and sweet goofy smiles. Isn’t it true? I think all the guests at the wedding witnessed it. The kind of love people dream of having—I’m so happy you two have found it! Thanks for having me as your photographer, congratulations!
