But I’ve been at a loss for words. Sadly, the bride of the pirate wedding I photographed contacted me a few days after their wedding to let me know her father had unexpectedly passed away. She was grateful he’d made it to her wedding, and asked if I could quickly send the images of her with her father for the memorial service. I photographed her father’s memorial service last week. Although I was glad to see them all again, I wished the circumstances had been different. I was touched that they asked me to photograph the service. As I’ve gotten to know them, I’ve learned more and more about how loving and special their family truly is, They had one of the most beautiful and creative weddings I’ve ever seen. The details they add to every event show their care and their love for each other. You could see in all of the photos of their wedding day, how happy and proud their father felt. Please keep them in your thoughts as they get through this difficult time.
