Document You // Stephanie & Walter

December 19, 2011

“Our vision is to make cancer treatments available to everyone across Canada, regardless of age and income.”

That is the statement you’ll see when you read about Thrive Alive, a foundation that Stephanie and Walter started in 2009. Their passion in life is to make the lives of those effected by cancer more positive, and most of their focus in life is the betterment of others.

Their story is very inspiring.

When they’re not making the world a better place, they share another passion together: sailing their boat. The boat is a big part of Steph and Walt’s lives and you can feel their love for that thing the second you step onto it.

So, it was logical for us to do their Document You session amidst something that held such esteem in their lives. Boating is a passion they share and being together on that boat clearly means a lot to them.

It’s tough for us to put into pictures and a few sentences how much we respect what these two do for others. The world could surely use a few more Stephanies and Walters, and we feel honoured to be photographing their wedding in 2012.

    You guys seriously need to do more of these document you sessions because the way you make them feel effortless intimate is amazing. Any photographer knows how hard it is to truly capture people on that deep of a level and you guys do it, and make it look easy.
