On August 19,2018, I had the pleasure of photographing one of the nicest persons I have ever met and have the continued pleasure of knowing and having in my life.
Her soul is gentle, her heart kind. Where others would frown, she laughs with an easygoing spirit and generosity. Those who have been on the receiving end of her smile or who have heard the music of her laugh, know that both are genuine and given freely without reservation despite any challenges life decides to throw her way. This wonderful soul is my assistant, Aynsley - and those who are in her many circles - or at the very least have been fortunate enough to receive her care on wedding day -- know that everything I say here about her is true.
And, so, it would be only fitting if an equally beautiful soul recognized Aynsley's and they spoke to each other. That soul is Shawn's. The more I learned of Shawn and got to know him, the more I knew that his soul IS the fitting complement to Aynsley's. Those who came before him have no idea of the fortune they failed to invest in -- and all that Shawn and Aynsley have now gained. It makes my heart happy to watch Aynsley and Shawn together: they work, play, laugh and cry together, recognizing and appreciating the value in each other and their families, truly uplifting and supporting each other.
My friend is safe and sound.
