Taylor: Edmonton River Valley Graduation + Couples Portraits

There are becoming more reoccurring connections due to photography. But, Taylor was one of the first. I'm so grateful this job has brought me the most amazing kindhearted people. When I first graduated from NAIT, I didn't photograph weddings. I specialized in food, product, and portrait photography. When the opportunity arose to photograph a Midget 15AA hockey team in 2017, I was very excited. The entire team was super kind and extremely easy to work with, but a few kids stuck out. Taylor was one of them. Whether that be because his mom, Nicole, was standing next to me on the ice amping all the boys up or because he thoroughly sprayed me with snow for his action shot, he was a memorable kid. A few years had passed, and Nicole reached out again in 2019 for a family photo session with her two sons. They were interested in fall photos featuring a few with their cars. Once again, the time spent together was an absolute blast. Running through fields, the brothers carrying each other, and continuous laughter anywhere they went. Their happiness as a family was contagious, and I had left with a full heart. Now I don't often get repeat clients perfectly spaced out, but another two years passed, and here we are again. It's 2021, and we're celebrating this 2020 graduate, this time with his girlfriend Carly. After wandering down the path for 2 minutes, a family said, "CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR WEDDING!" and it was clear these two were being super cute. I love love, but there's something different about young love. Taylor and Carly are one of a kind. They are so polite and respectful. I couldn't believe how lucky I was to have hit the jackpot with another connection in Taylor's life. From his last hockey team to his family and now finally his girlfriend, this young man surrounds himself with the most spectacular circle of people. Now I'm convinced Taylor will slowly introduce me to everyone in his life, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
