More Than an Image Photography »

Jessica.. you document people’s love for them… in a beautiful, beautiful way… and when you set your wedding date I was SO excited because finally… it wasn’t about someone else’s special day… it was about yours.  It was your turn to be shown that you mean the world to people… and it was your turn in the spotlight…declaring your love to your best friend… Please be patient as I try to get through this blog post tear-free. 😉

There may not be words that accurately describe how much I care about the two of you.  But I will try my hardest. 😉   Jessica…My Long Tall Sally.. 😀  It must have been nearly 9 years ago when we met… and I am so thankful we have become not only friends… but family… 🙂     I feel so blessed to know you… You are kind, caring, selfless, loving, giving and beautiful… It is very rare that you find someone who can care so much and love so deeply without expecting anything in return… but that is just you… You love and give until there isn’t anymore love…to give… and then you love some more… I absolutely cherish your friendship more than you know… I look at friendships like yours… that are so few and far between… and know just how special it is…

Clarence… I heard Jessica talk about you… but when I met you… I understood exactly why she loved you… You love her with every ounce of your being… and it makes me happy to know she has found someone who will never take her for granted…  Your random acts of kindness… is what brought the two of you together…and I know you will continue showering her with love and kindness forever… You are such a great man… You are strong where she is weak… and vice versa… and that is what will make your love grow even stronger. 🙂

It was incredibly hard for me to narrow down these photos to share your love story with the world… Not only to share your love story but the story of the love between a Father… and a daughter…

One of the reasons I love what I do is that I get the opportunity to capture moments… special, sometimes rare moments that may never happen again… Fleeting memories that if not captured with a camera… could be forgotten… I have never been SO grateful to be there capturing such special moments that will mean more now than they ever would have before…

The day after Jessica and Clarence’s wedding, her father passed away unexpectedly…

After the best day of their lives… happened the worst day of her life… and her world crumbled… and stopped.  I know it is hard to see the sunshine through the pain… but Jessica… He is so proud of you… and I believe with every fiber of my being that he is looking down on you and he is filled with joy… and happy that you have an incredible man who will take care of you for the rest of your life…

We will NEVER forget your sweet dad…his stories… his sense of humor… his hugs… his selflessness… (must be where you get it) 😉 his smile… rolling a “chair with wheels” down the sidewalk in New York City… haha… The way he squeezes you tight and calls you “Honey”… There are so many memories the two of you share that I don’t even know about… and I know you are sad now… but please know he wants you to be happy… and when that light flickers…… 🙂  He was dearly loved and will be incredibly missed.

Jessica’s dad had diabetes… a disease that claims over 4 million lives each year.  In memory of him there is a page set up to raise money for the “Walk to Stop Diabetes”… Here is a link if you feel compelled to donate to help stop this disease… http://main.diabetes.org/goto/BigJohnLavoie   

 

Love you Jess and Clarence! PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE

  • prashant - Love them. I like the limo shot nad the on eoutside the reception a lot.

About 5 years ago while in college… I walked into Gold’s gym… and I was greeted by this bright and cheerful face!  Now…I’m chatty anyway… and I certainly didn’t need any excuse to delay dragging my rear-end to that treadmill…but we got to talking about photography… so I ran home, grabbed some books…and brought them back with me so she could browse!  We’ve kept in touch since… and she always said… “When it’s my turn…I’m calling you!”  Well guess what!!! Morgan got engaged!!! And I was SO excited to get that email!!  And I was even more excited to hug her neck last week and meet her fiance!   I had SO much fun with you two and I am beyond excited for your special day!! It was an honor to capture such sweet moments for you two to cherish always!! Here are a few of my favorites! 🙂PINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGEPINIMAGE
