A couple of weeks ago I participated in a local wedding show. As I was preparing my booth, I put together a slideshow of some of my very favourite photos. After I had all of the photos selected, I sat back and watched the slideshow. And I honestly felt so much joy as the photos were playing.

This job is such a privilege. It is not lost on me that I get to be present on what is one of the happiest days of my couples’ lives. Not only do I get to witness it, but I get to document it, too. I am there for the most intimate moments throughout the day. I always feel so honoured and so so lucky. Like how did I get here?

The original slideshow had over 300 photos (it was a 6 hour wedding show sooooo, yeah). But I wanted to share some of my favourite moments of joy with you all. So below is an abbreviated slideshow for you.

It never ceases to amaze me how you can feel the love and the happiness and the sheer joy throughout the day. And that is my favourite thing to capture – the joy. It gives me goosebumps to think that one day, their children and their grandchildren will look through the photos. And hopefully they too will see and feel the joy in those moments.

My hope is that these photos make you smile, and in the spirit of Marie Kondo, maybe even spark a little joy for you as well.
