I was so excited when Lisa approached me to photograph her vow renewal. It was her and Anthony’s dream to go back to the beginning of their marriage and celebrate the changes, the good experiences, the challenges overcome, and the fact that they are still very much in love.
Weddings are truly wonderful, to be able to witness the start of a journey, to see the hopes and dreams and all of the emotion that accompanies a life-long covenant. A vow renewal is all of this and so much more. It’s looking at a couple and realizing that those butterflies and excitement are guided by a real KNOWING of each other. Knowing the challenges of marriage and children and living life together and yet choosing this day again.
Romance and commitment.
And how much more special when this bride was a special “foster” daughter to my grandmother. An extra, lovely auntie to me!
PS. See if you can spot the original wedding photo!
