I recently took a road trip with my family (husband + dog + me) to Whistler, B.C. for a very special friend’s wedding. Emily and I met in 1996 when we studied abroad. We sailed around the world together, while living on a ship and traveling in ten different countries along the way. I met Emily before the boat left the first port and a true friendship was born. In the last 14 years, Emily and I have never lived in the same city or even state, but we have shared many adventures, experienced different cultures and explored the world together; this is part of what keeps us close. One of my favorite things about Emily is no matter how much time has passed since the last email, phone call, or text message I can reach out to her and we pick up as if no time has passed; she is a real friend.
Emily’s husband Jeff is just as fabulous as she. From the moment I met him I knew Jeff was the one for Emily. The person with whom she’d share her life and be her ‘Emily’ self at all times. I knew this because Jeff seemed to love all the things I loved about Emily.
It was an honor to be a guest at Emily and Jeff’s wedding and snap a few shots here and there. As hard as it can be for me not ‘officially’ shooting a friend’s wedding it also allows be to be present and focus on celebrating the love of the day. Here is to Emily and Jeff and a life of love and adventure ahead of them.
Emily and Jeff, thanks for having us at your celebration and thanks for letting me grab a few shots. Love you guys!
