Rebeca and I have been friends since we were 15 and both worked at Chuck E Cheese back in Whitby, Ontario. 13 years and way too much Pizza later we are still friends. She even followed me to Calgary where she became an EMT and met the man of her dreams Mr. Ed. I take full credit for their love. I spent years convincing her to move West. I also had the duty of listening babble as she sat on my couch both before and after their first date talking all about him in that super ridiculous new love sort of way.
It meant so much to me when Ed and Rebeca asked me to photograph their wedding. It meant even more when they hired me to photograph their maternity, birth and newborn sessions. Knowing Rebeca as long as I have means I know how much she loves Ed and how long she’s wanted to be a mom. It’s amazing for me to watch all her dreams come true and even more awesome to be able to have a small part in all of it.
Here’s some of what we created together on a chilly cloudy night in Okotoks.
