This is a special blog post dedicated to a very special couple. Earlier this year, Isabel & Vince celebrated their 10 year wedding anniversary. Not only did it signify a milestone in their marriage, it also signified a milestone in my photography career. You see, Isabel & Vince's wedding was the very first wedding I shot. It was this couple that spearheaded a decade of capturing memories and timeless moments for those that followed. To celebrate this milestone, Isabel & Vince asked me to do a family portrait session with their (now much extended) family.
This is their wedding photo taken 10 years ago. Yes, we used sloppy borders back then (don't laugh). I still remember that day like it was yesterday and remembered the exact spot this shot was taken, right on Cordova St. behind the Vancouver Club.
Fast forward 10 years, and today they have three beautiful children: Aidan, Noah (also known as 'No-No') and Emilia or "Emmy"
Having known Isabel & Vince on a personal level prior to their marriage, I have had the priviledge of photographing both of them on a variety of occasions over the years. Whether it was for a photography assignment or practicing some kind of lighting techniques, they were always willing and able to volunteer their time to help. This maternity photo was taken when she was pregnant with Aidan, their first baby. Today, Aidan is a very rambunctious little boy with a WHOLE LOT of energy:)
When it came down to working, the boys were wonderful helpers too!
But they did get easily distracted....
Unbelievable how 10 years can go by so quickly. To have had the opportunity to document such a wonderful couple and other couples & families over the years makes me feel incredibly blessed. Being such wonderful subjects and having many friends who have asked them to take their picture, I feel so honoured that Isabel & Vince asked me to document this incredible milestone with them. That 20 year wedding anniversary portrait session can't come soon enough!
