On May-Long weekend, here on beautiful Salt Spring Island, I had the honour of capturing the love between Dana & George. Not only did I photograph their wedding, but I also spent the evening before with them & their family, as well as brunch the morning after. The thought & love, obviously put into this […]
It’s ok to break. It’s okay. If you need to hide in the bathroom with closed door, just to cry or breathe, before carrying on with the tasks at hand, it’s ok. If you need to ignore all the chores and instead climb into bed to shut your eyes, or hide from the world for […]
