It was in the tropical paradise of Hawaii where Elva first laid eyes on Ephraim. They were both at YWAM (Youth With A Mission) having come from their own corners of the world; Elva from BC, Ephraim from Switzerland. The seed was sown but there were no sparks…not yet anyways. Back at home, Ephraim’s friend suggested a snowboarding trip to Whistler, and he just so happened to know a girl whose house they could stay at. A plane ride later, Ephraim walked through the door of Elva’s family home. And when Ephraim’s eyes met Elva’s, they locked and they both knew…knew that what they found in each other in that moment was something special.
This past June they were married in Switzerland in a quaint church tucked away in the Alps, and celebrated in traditional Swiss style with family and friends before coming to Canada to begin their life as husband and wife. They love their adventures and they love their picnics, and the genuine love that they share for one another is palpable. Elva works in Vancouver while Ephraim is training to become a helicopter pilot and they have dreams of one day serving in the mission field together with his license. With hearts like theirs, I have no doubt that God has big things in store for them.
Ephraim and Elva, I can’t thank you enough for our afternoon together! Getting to photograph a love like yours is why I’m blessed to get to do what I do. Enjoy this sneak peek and your upcoming honeymoon (part two!) to Hawaii where I hope you’ll more than make up for lost time together there.
