On a recent business trip to Buffalo, NY I finished my work day early and decided to take my camera to try and catch a few shots of the falls. The day started overcast and dark and I thought that’d be a perfect day to take some shots.
As I approached the falls the sun came out and it became a very bright, hot, sunny day. Not so great for the photos I wanted, but still a great day to explore an amazing place.
I was about to finish my visit and head out when I heard a couple trying to explain their situation to someone who didn’t speak English very well. They were trying to get him to take a photo of a very special moment for them.
Aaron and Sandy had each been married before and came to Niagara Falls to have a personal commitment ceremony. The plan was to throw their old wedding rings into the falls as a symbol of the end of the old and the beginning of their new life together. I just happened to be at the right place at the right time.
The old rings, ready to fly.
The couple on starting their new life together. I hope the faint rainbow behind them is an omen for a beautiful, colorful life together.
