The Blog

Alyssa + Shawn, June 30th, 2018 {Bonnyville Wedding Photographer}

An alternate title for this blog could be "how to make your quite pregnant friend cry" because I have a feeling Alyssa will catch feelings while reliving this amazing day. I know I did as I went through editing them. 

I caught feelings so hard that not once, but SEVERAL TIMES, I had to wipe tears away while looking at Amber and saying "omg, I can't with these two." 

Alyssa and Shawn love each other. This is not news. The big scary guy with the neck tattoo has a heart of gold, he's just a big softie. And Alyssa, well she's a diamond. a wise cracking, witty and quick on her feet diamond. Gorgeous, with a HUGE heart. One in a million. It is not news that they love each other, that evidence is written all over their faces and the face of their spunky little spitfire Hailey. (and in Alyssa's little bump that she proudly displays. sooo much love <3) 

but... the way they look at each other, and the way their parents look at them. The love they have for their family and friends, and the love their family and friends have for them- it was just literally too much for my poor cold dark heart to handle. *and Ashley's heart grew three sizes that day* 

..anyways. I'm getting all twinkly again, so take a look at a few of my favourites <3
