In 2011 I had the privilege to “work with” Alanna + Darrell. They were engaged, and I had the fortunate opportunity to be their wedding photographer. I remember I loved them instantly at our engagement shoot, as they were so grounded and real. I was excited to be a part of something I felt would really last.
And then they got married and had an epic Moroccan-themed wedding that November at the AGO which sealed the deal. I will never forget it.
So you can imagine how much fun it was for me to return a couple of years later for a family shoot, and again this year to document their growing family. This one was to celebrate the arrival of Asher, Rafi’s baby brother.
And from this shoot, I stand by my initial feelings about Alanna + Darrell. They are something special. And the calm and joy-filled way that they parent two little ones only goes to prove this theory more strongly.
Happy Anniversary, you two! I look forward to celebrating many more!
