For a couple who has been together for years they still have this sweet brand new love about them, it radiates around them when they are together. It’s in the way Collins quietly watches over Alexandra and how he gets this crooked smile and a rise to his eye brow when he looks at her. It’s also in how Alexandra sweetly places her hand at the base of his neck to draw him in close to her. If I didn’t know better I would have thought they had just fallen in love but knowing their story I know that theirs is a relationship built on years of knowing and loving each other.
I can tell you when and where I got the call that Collins had popped the question and asked his beautiful bride Alexandra to marry him. I think you could have heard me scream in delight all away across the ocean where he asked the question on their African Safari trip. I photographed Alexandra’s sister’s wedding a few years ago, my how time flies, and have kept up with the family. So how do I remember the moment I found out about their engagement? Well I had also just found out I was pregnant and my heart about stopped when I heard their original wedding date, just two weeks after my due date. I thought I would cry when I explained why I couldn’t be there for them on that date. Much to my delight, they actually moved up their wedding date so I could be the one to capture their day. I can tell you I was so honored!
Alexandra and Collins, Thank you so much for allowing us to capture and be apart of your beautiful wedding day. I adore you both and I’m so excited to capture one of life’s biggest events unfold before your eyes.
Many thanks to Kevin my associate shooter for his amazing eye at this wedding and always knowing what I needed. Thanks to Robbin Knight for being a part of the team and capturing so many fabulous images. I couldn’t have done it with out you two! And a big thank you for my sweet hubby, Todd for keeping a smile on his face and being that guy to help out where ever he could and still keeping an eye on his very hard headed and pregnant wife.
