The great thing about this job is that I get to meet lots of lovely faces. I met Clarinda a few years back, at a wedding I shot - she was one of the bride's maids. From the moment I met her, I knew that she was a blessing to the people around her and to her future husband. She had/has a great sense of humour and she was/is zealous about life and her faith. Admittedly, I wanted to set her up with one of my closest friends...
Clarinda met Dave at their church. They were both serving together at their youth group - SWITCH. And throughout the year they would co-incidentally meet up to have really deep and meaningful conversations - this was where they developed a close friendship. It was through these d&ms that Clarinda realised that Dave is a pretty "deep guy" and that in turn, Dave knew that Clarinda was somebody who he can commit his life to loving for the rest of his life. Despite their own personal circumstances - their mutual affections for one another and desires for commitment prevailed and their relationship blossomed.
They are a joy to hang out with; they are generous, friendly and passionate. They are both incredibly zealous for the things that they hold dear to their hearts. Individually they have quite strong personalities, but they are sooo well suited for one another. They are a great illustration of how iron sharpens iron.
Their wedding is quickly approaching and I have the honour of being able to document the beginning of their lives together. Can't wait!
It was lovely hanging out with you guys the other week!! We had a blast! David brought his beloved guitar and played quite a few songs for Clarinda - and by the look in her eyes, I could tell that she was absolutely smitten by his rock star qualities! :D :D
