{wedding} margaret + andy

I had the privilege to fly down to South Carolina just before Christmas to shoot a very special ladies wedding.  Margaret & I met in September of 2008 in England, when my husband & I went to do some schooling, and she was in the same course with us.  Margaret was the first “Southern belle” I had ever met and I have to be honest, I was a little wary of culture clashes at first (can a West Coast Canadian & a Southern American find common ground?).  Needless to say that faded fast and Margaret and I became fast friends.  While in England, Margaret and Andy were at the very beginning of their relationship, so I heard a lot (a LOT) about Andy.  We went down to Bolivia together and worked at a home for street boys, so we’ve seen each other at our worst.  Seeing her at the wedding, however, was definitely seeing Margaret at her best, most beautiful.  And it was a pleasure and an honour to FINALLY meet the infamous Andy that I had heard so much about.

It was REALLY cold and rainy that day, and we only had a small amount of time for photos, and by the time the reception came along, we only had had about 10 minutes for bride & groom shots.  I was insistent on getting the bride & groom on their own, so we quickly hopped out before the sun went down during the reception (it was already 6pm by that point!)

Here are some of my favourite shots from the day:
