Hackwith Basics

I've been following along and wearing the beautiful work of  Hackwith Design for a few years now. I love the simplicity of their pieces, the quality of their fabrics and that they are made to order by a team of amazing women in Minnesota.  So, I was beyond excited when they asked me to take some photos of a piece from their new basics line. 

This top is lightweight, loose, and just so comfortable. My new spring/summer staple. 

I recommend taking a look at the rest of the collection here.

Jessica + Kelsey | Handfasting Ceremony in Tofino

Over a year ago, I received the sweetest email from Jessica and Kelsey inquiring about working together on their wedding. I could immediately tell, even before meeting them, that they were an extremely thoughtful couple. After meeting them, I knew that their relationship was special and that their wedding would be a beautiful and unique reflection of their love.  
Months later, I received another email from them asking if I would be interested in meeting up with them in Tofino to photograph a handfasting ceremony they wanted to have on the beach. I immediately told them yes! and then, if I am being honest, googled what handfasting was. Handfasting is a traditional ceremony which occurs one year before the intended wedding where the couple makes a formal promise of marriage. You could describe it as a step between being engaged and being married. A time to implement how the traditional vows should be lived, while building a home together and becoming a family.
The ceremony was one of the most beautiful and intimate experiences I have been fortunate enough to document. On an empty beach, with handwritten vows and silk ribbons that tied them together, these two made their promise. 
I am so looking forward to photographing their wedding this coming year, exactly one year after this special ceremony.
