I first met Vanessa at her sister Angela’s wedding a couple of years ago and I loved her immediately. She is bubbly, over the top, happy, and adorable. When she emailed me about her own wedding I was thrilled! Cody was best man for Angela & Jeff, so it was a pretty easy meeting – they both already knew what it’s like to work with me (ie how totally crazy….I mean artistically inspired….I can be).
Vanessa & Cody met through Angela & Jeff. One of my favourite jokes during the reception was that Jeff and Cody were such good friends that they even found a legal way to become brothers!
I want to say a special thank you to Vanessa’s parents Sett & Carla – it’s been such a pleasure to work with your family twice. You are both so full of love for those around you and it’s been wonderful to share your joy on your daughters’ wedding days. Sett – your poem to Vanessa had me in tears. Carla – you made my day the second I walked through your door in the morning and said “Oh good, our favourite photographer is here!” I’m looking forward to many family shoots to come!
And to Vanessa & Cody….you made my job so easy. Cody – I admire how dedicated you were to making sure your guests were happy and enjoying themselves on the wedding day and that everything ran on time. And Vanessa – it’s been a blast. We were meant to be!
