There are moments I’m behind the camera and I find myself sharing the same emotion as those around me. I guess that shouldn’t be a surprise. Because for me, work is not just work and that’s what I love so much about my job. It’s getting to not only capture a couple’s special day but being fortunate enough to get to experience it with them too. So there are times I’m behind the camera and I’m laughing and smiling and definitely crying. And on Candace and Kofi’s Wedding Day, there was one moment in particular I found myself wiping away the tears. Words that were spoken that I just couldn’t get out of my head. They were Candace’s vows to Kofi. She looked down at the papers that held those precious words and then tears began to form in her own eyes, “Kofi, before anything, you were first my friend. And I always prayed that God would provide me with a man that had a heart for God like my friend Kofi. But God turned it around and said, ‘Candace…I’ll do you one better. I’ll give you Kofi’.”
Huge thanks to the talented Bre Sessions for helping me capture Candace & Kofi’s beautiful day! Love the shots she got of Kofi below.
Another great image Bre captured below!
