I could write for days about Angela & Sherwin.
Angela shines from the inside. Like I actually think that she carries the sun (or at least a few very bright stars) somewhere inside of her ribcage. That is how bright she shines.
Sensitive and deep-feeling souls like Angela need partners like Sherwin. Quiet, soft-spoken, grounding, patient. A balance is struck and everything makes sense.
In my 8 years as a wedding photographer I have shot hundreds of weddings. I still get high from them. Heady and dizzy and chest-clenching highness. Every single time.
Angela and Sherwin took me higher.
I will never forget and am forever changed by so much of this day, but most of all I will remember this wedding when I need to be reminded of sacred love.
Sherwin was Angela’s first boyfriend. She wanted so much to save her first dance for her husband that she wouldn’t even dance with her prom date.
In the days of Tinder and ‘buffet dating’, I am refreshed and heartened to know that there are still a few of us who love consciously.
(Also there was a freak snowstorm on their wedding day and it was GORGEOUS.)
…and then it started to snow…
