Growing up, there was always a radio playing in the background at our house. Many times, a song would come on, and my dad could tell us exactly who the artist was, and where he was when he heard that song for the first time. I thought he must possess an amazing memory; but now, many years later, I too am able to identify songs of great personal significance to a time and place. Some songs remind me of certain weddings . “Paradise” by Coldplay brings Astrid and Darren’s wedding to mind; James Blunt singing “Bonfire Heart” makes me smile and think of Inge and Jonathan’s first dance; and now; Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson Featuring Bruno Mars, will forever remind me of Meagan and Keenan’s epic (EPIC!!!) wedding at the gorgeous Kleinevalleij just outside Wellington.
They’re blessed to have been surrounded by a group of amazing people who they have been able to call friends since the age of 9, and were able to share this amazing milestone in their lives with them. This group of friends choreographed a dance, to enter the reception to Bruno Mars’ Uptown Funk, it was one of the coolest things I’ve seen!
I love how stylish and sophisticated Meagan and Keenan are; how grounded, sweet, funny, and smart; how sentimental and lovely; how kind and happy. They have left a mark on my heart, and I’m so glad I could be a part of such a wonderful celebration. I feel really blessed to have been chosen to document their day.
Hand on my heart – as a wedding photographer, my clients leave imprints on my heart and memories. This is not just a job, it’s a passion.
