How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for right.
I love thee purely, as they turn from praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints.
I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life; and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
It has been a long long time! But here I am again!
This. wedding. was. amazing.
Like really amazing! Emma has been my wedding assistant/second shooter at times, for the last couple of years. Not only is she a super lovely girl she is also a very talented photographer herself! We have known each other for a long time. We grew up in the same town, went to the same schools, so we have known each other for a while
Emma had every detail planned out and everything was perfection. Annnnddddd Samuel actually made the wedding cake! I know, needless to say I was impressed. I have never been witness to a groom making the wedding cake, he’s not even a baker might I add, an engineer!
And the location, breathtaking, it was around various spots in the Karikari peninsula, I think one of the most gorgeous spots in all of the land.
Emma + Samuel, I was so incredibly touched to be along for the ride. Thank you! What an incredible fun day with you all! I hope you are enjoying your new adventure! (They have just moved to Scotland :-) )
Huge thanks to Nicole for second shooting with me!
Ps. grab a cuppa – this is going to be a long post!
