Laughter

This Thanksgiving I am thankful for laughter.

Laughter brought me out of some of my darkest moments this year. So I want to give thanks to my kids, my husband, my family, my friends, and my clients who laughed and made me laugh. But most of all, I want to give thanks to God for creating laughter in us, and for having a sense of humor Himself.

Karlee + Justin // Vancouver Island, B.C.

I cannot tell you how many times I have been blessed to have some of the most talented photographers second shoot for me. But with this particular wedding, the tables were turned. I wanted to see what it would be like firsthand, to be a second shooter at a wedding. Jakob & Cole of Nordica Photography, are some of my very favorite wedding photographers and people. So for this being my first time as a second-shooter, I cannot express enough into words, what an incredible and unique experience this was for me. Jakob, thank you so much for having me along for this wedding. I will never forget it. To see more from Karlee & Justin’s glorious 1913-themed wedding, you can read about it in their Rock n’ Roll Bride feature.
