After much bad luck and bad timing, trying to schedule my work schedule this summer with theirs, Fiona finally reached out again asking if I could come up to Kingston, ON that upcoming weekend for an impromptu Anniversary shoot. I was honoured to be asked to photograph this special moment in their lives (and I was available), and that they took the time to document such a milestone. When we talked on the phone the weekend before the shoot, I asked Fiona and Douglas what they wanted out of the photos, and wanted to learn more about the vision they had. They just wanted one good photo documenting a momentous occasion that they could hold onto for a lifetime. Anything beyond that would be icing on the cake. I loved this response! I think we sometimes get lost in a photo session trying to ‘get it all’ like some sort of checklist, when really all that matters is that you were together. Let those feelings always be the goal.
