I sometimes can’t believe it has been 4 years since we started working with Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario – the time really has flown by! So much so that whenever anyone asks us how long we have been photographing their events, I really don’t have a quick answer, and often end up getting it wrong when I try to guesstimate. But when Wine for Wishes comes around each year it is like our little anniversary with this absolutely wonderful charity and, for us, it makes an already great event even better!
Every so often we get the pleasure of working with some of the greatest people this city has to offer as we cover Make-A-Wish events and wishes. And we get to spend the day learning about some truly amazing kids too.
So you know how I had that unofficial goal to capture a proposal? And then how I got that chance earlier this year? Well apparently I really should have made it an official goal for 2017 because I got to capture another one at the Make-A-Wish Rope for Hope event we were a part of!
If you follow us even semi-regularly, you will already know how much we love working with Make-A-Wish Eastern Ontario. Not only does this charity do such amazing work in our community, but the people who work and volunteer there are truly some of the best in the world! So when they called us and asked if we wanted to be a part of a very special campaign we not only said yes, but were super happy to do so.
You may think that after covering the Make-A-Wish Wine for Wishes event for so many years in a row that it would get a little redundant and boring for us, but boy-oh-boy would you ever be wrong! Wine for Wishes may have the same idea each year in that it serves scrumptious food, wine and beer from all sorts of local vineyards, breweries and restaurants, but each year offers us something new to cover (plus the idea of food and beverages is pretty foolproof, right?!).
