Tara and I grew up together. She was like an older sister to me. We lost touch over the years and through the magic of Facebook, we reconnected. She has two adorable children. She met Tony back in highschool. They were sweethearts but drifted on separate paths with different people. Tony has three children. Together through space, place and time they found each other again.
She is the ever optimist. He is a realist. She is beautiful and loving. He is strong and rugged and adores his bride-to-be. You know when you can just tell?
Last night must have been the hottest night of the year so far. The air was still and sticky. Michael came along and helped me shoot portraits. He is an amazing second shooter and we work very well together. Tara and Tony never complained once and were game for every location we chose. It's rare that you find people as good looking, humble and kind as these two and to boot, they are completely and madly in love. Even despite previous lives, different countries and roadblocks thrown in front of them, nothing could keep them apart. What can I say? It was meant to happen.
In just a few short weeks, "T 'n' T " will be married at the Ancaster Old Mill, in front of their closest family members in an intimate outdoor ceremony. These are the kind of weddings photographers dream about.
Tara and Tony, we hope you enjoy your "sneak peek" of photos from last night. The countdown is on!
