Gosh, where do I start!?
Let’s break the ice with 1 week ago today at the KWPolar Plunge at Waterloo Town Square.
As you know, I’m first and foremost a wedding photographer in the Kitchener-Waterloo area. However, I have a super soft spot for the community and the events that go on to support it. In the past year, I’ve supported and photographed over 12 local Kitchener-Waterloo events including: Eff Winter Party, Sip4Hope, Steel Rails, TEDxWaterloo, Studio54, Lipsmacker Bushwacker, The Brush Off and now the KWPolar Plunge. I gotta say, the KWPolar Plunge is the most impressive.
Why? Something you should know about this event is that it was literally planned with a handful of people with a tight timeline. We all have full time jobs, yet pulled together to make something happen for a great local initiative: KidsAbility and from what I understand we’ve raised over $1000 (I’m told we’re still calculating the online donations). Personally, this event surprised me and completely blew me out of the water
You can read about how this all started on Spike Mobile’s blog post as well as a list of our amazing sponsors who made this possible.
Another shout-out goes to these lovely ladies: The AcaBellas. They are an all female A Capella Group who keep things “sassy, classy and sweet.” Check them out!! Here’s their YouTube channel (my personal fav: Afternoon Delight).
In the meantime, whether you were there or missed it you can enjoy some of the epic dive moments that follow:
Things are calming down since the KWPolar Plunge and now we can get back to our regularly scheduled blog posts. While I work on typing those up, you can enjoy these teaser photos as a sampler of what’s to come:
