This will be by far, the longest, most picture filled blog post I have ever done, only because this was the longest job I have ever been on. I spent the better part of three days with this amazing couple, and was allowed the privilege of learning a small part of their stories and their love for each other.
By the end of the three days, I had fallen in love with them, and I cannot wait to see what will happen in their lives.
I had the good fortune to give them a whirlwind tour of the city while at the same time being their photographer. Had the weather co-operated, we would have traveled more outdoors, but none of us really wanted to brave the snow and rain.
Yes, they are soo in LOVE.. I absolutely adored spending time with them. It was relaxed, fun and full of LOVE...
Ok, and it was really, really hard to pick just a few pictures from each thing that we did... so, yes, there are way, way, way too many pics up here.. but I do hope you enjoy.
Compared to last year, the weather was miserable. However, we didn't get completely soaked, and the wind didn't completely blow us all away, so in the end, it was a success.
The JDRF had a goal to raise just over $460,000.00 this year, and they were able to manage to raise $450,000.00 which is incredibly close.
Even though the weather was not ideal, the crowd turnout was still very impressive. Here are a few snippets from the day. Even included some of the celebrity donor George Canyon.
None of these shots would be possible without the assistance of my team of volunteer photographers.
Mark Laurie, Drew Gregory, Claudia Tecuceanu, and Crystal Sujata.
Once again, Sunley Photography is the official event photographer for the Calgary Telus Walk to Cure Diabetes.

I would love to see some familiar faces, and would love it even more if I knew that some of you were making donations to this wonderful organization.I support this organization because I believe no child should have to live with this illness, I have seen two family members live with type 2 diabetes, and I see that even as adults, they struggled at times with managing. I cannot imagine a child trying to cope and understand what is going on with their body.This is an illness that impacts the entire family.
So, come have fun, and at the same time, perhaps you can help out a worthy cause.
