Christina and all the rays of sunshine that she is with every part of her being became part of my world in summer months of 2015. Christina is one of those beautiful souls, you know the kind.....she's the person that makes you want to look at world with more kindness, more compassion and overall graditute for everything that is good and right in these times of today. There is a certain something that just radiates everything that Christina is, and I believe that something is Anna. I heard the stories, I saw the smile on Christina face and that glitter in her eyes as she told them, this was it, Anna was my dear friends forever.
Christina and I have been photographing weddings and preserving others memories together with constant laughter and giddy smiles, and I believe with each one secretly daydreaming of our own special day. So when Christina told me that she was ready to ask Anna for forever, our planning, giddy smiles and laughter turned from everyone else special time to Christina's special time. Over the years I have been so privileged to be the girl behind the camera for many love stories, yet this was my first proposal. I was so in, ready to be part of this moment for my dear friend wholeheartedly. The sparkly diamond was placed in a pair of boots, the fresh farmers market flowers were arranged into a sprouting bouquet, the love radiated between two lovely women, this was the day Christina would ask Anna to be her wife.
Christina&Anna arrived at our pretend shoot and I started clicking my shutter, smiling ear to ear out of pure joy for the love that is shared between these two, so evident, so clear, so inspiring. We giggled and laughed in our typical fashion as the moment came closer and closer, and then it happened, and it was thrilling, with tears in her eyes she said yes.
I'll never forget this day, and my heart will always be inspired by your love. You two have found in each other what is the very essence of this life and I am so fortunate to have been part of this monumental day in your lives. There is not enough good fortune in this world that I could possibly wish you two on your way to becoming your own family, on your own path, with your own magnificent version of happiness. xo
