“Disturb us, Lord, when we are too well pleased with ourselves, when our dreams have come true because we have dreamed too little, when we arrive safely because we have sailed too close to shore. Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly to venture on wider seas where storms will show Your mastery; where losing sight of land we shall find stars. We ask You to push back the horizons of our hopes; we ask You to push in the future in strength, courage, hope, and love. ” St. Francis Drake

HAPPY NEW YEAR | 2015 the year of Peace

©The Why We Love - Paso Robles Wedding Photographers

It’s here! 2015 is here and we welcome it with open arms.  2014 is, by far, the most memorable year in our lives.  While it was easily one of the busiest of wedding seasons in the history of The Why We Love it was also the most monumental for our little family.  We (The Snelsons) welcomed our first child into our lives July of this year.  Levi Hendrick Snelson has consumed us body and soul.  His presence in our lives is teaching us a fresh perspective on love, marriage, family and priorities.  We have a new found appreciation for what we do and the value of captured memories.  We dedicate this post to all of our kind and loving clients who have stood by our side and supported us in one of the most transformative seasons in our lives.  Your support and patience while we have learned to navigate the balance of new parenthood and small business ownership has meant the world to us.  As you each settle into your marriages, homes, and roles of being a spouse you will become acquainted with the ever changing dynamics of your new family.  As the newness of your marriages wash over you, we pray a blessing of peace to cover each of your families, hearts, and homes.  We hope 2015 will be a year you experience grace and love in a deeper, richer, and more unconditional way.  With that we also extend our deepest gratitude.

Peace to You,
Kevin & Danielle Snelson
