Hey there, time traveller!

MY husband and I were married this summer. The weather was perfect, and the day was everything we hoped it would be. We could not have had a better start to our life together.
But a couple of weeks after our wedding, we received a phone call from our photographers explaining a download error had occurred and many of our key wedding pictures were gone as well as all our family photos. We were both devastated.
We scrambled to ask our guests for their pictures, but we were not able to replace any of the lost family photos.
We were distraught, but suddenly there was a light at the end of the tunnel.
Jeremy Hiebert, who did a wonderful job of shooting our engagement photos, contacted us when he heard about our situation. Out of the kindness of his heart, he offered to re-shoot, at no charge, our wedding pictures and all the family poses. We were blown away by his compassion.
He was not the only helpful one.
Moore’s Clothing for Men on McPhillips Street provided us the tuxes at no charge and put in a rush order to get them in time.
We met Jeremy on a freezing cold October afternoon at Assiniboine Park, where he reshot our photos. He showed up with a game plan, and quickly shot all the family photos before we lost the setting sun. He then offered to do additional photos around Assiniboine Park to make up for the other photos that were lost.
We cannot thank Jeremy enough for everything he has done for us. He selflessly offered his time and services to make a bad situation better, even though he had no involvement in the problem. He is a testament to the fact that there are still amazing people in the world.
We will always remember these simple acts of kindness when we look at our wedding family photos.
