We just love the photos and the stories of love here on Green Wedding Shoes. This isn’t your typical wedding story, but the story that Renee of One Tree Life shared with me is one of a big heart and the will to keep going when your world turns upside down. Renee started working in the photography field seven years ago. Her and her husband built up the business slowly and had finally reached their personal goals that would allow her husband to quit his day job when he suddenly died. I can’t even imagine that… Renee became a widow and single mom. She took a year off photographing weddings entirely but was still unwilling to commit to photographing one before testing herself.
Renee had always been fond of a certain couple in her small town in Idaho. She also knew that they were unable to have a ceremony + reception when they were married. So Renee offered to design, set up and take the pictures at absolutely no cost. Not only was she able to provide a very deserving couple with photos + a wedding day they will cherish forever, she also found that she fell in love all over again with taking part in such an important day in a couple’s life. She is now back to photographing the thing she loves – weddings – and has now began booking weddings for 2012. It’s stories like this that really make me so happy to be a part of the wedding world. Renee, you are inspiring and I wish you all the best with documenting these stories of love and I know lots + lots of couple’s will cherish your photos for years to come. Thanks so much for sharing your story today. And to the Krizenesky’s – we are excited to share your “second” wedding today. :)
A beautiful backyard ceremony.
