Lauren Reynolds life was forever changed simply a few months before her wedding when she found out her fianc, Tristin Woods, diedin a car accident.
What was supposed to be a month of planning and anticipation was instantly replaced by a funeraland coming to grasps with the facts of the case she would only be able to see the man she scheduled on spending the rest of her life with in photographs and residence movies.
Its those very pictures Lauren and Seattle, Washington-based photographerStephanie Jarstadused to make a heartbreaking memorial to Tristin — an emotional, creepy and empty permutation for a wedding that never happened.
Jarstad told Pixable,
Lauren hopes this photo shoot will induce others to have a brand-new outlook on life and to influence others to convey the enjoy they experience. She is grateful for the time she spent with Tristin.
In a short film shot by Jarstad about the photo shoot, Lauren speaks of the little bits of Tristin she continues with her at all times. She remarked,
He would call me and if I wouldn’t answer he would leave these little voicemails of just, like, his pocket noise. I have like 20 of them, but I cherish it now because … its HIS pocket noise.
In a word on Pixable, Lauren spoke,
Life is so fragile. My hope is that those who truly invest some time in discovering my narrative be developed further a sense of empowerment to fully appreciate the love in “peoples lives”. Recognizing the ardour in your life isnt just something you do alone in your thinker. There are physical and psychological obstructions that have to be broken in order to love to the levels that you and those around this is necessary. So run tell your momma youre sorry, hug your little brother like hes been trying to do for the last week, look in the mirror and feel better about yourself, bring your grandma a birthday placard and hug your marriage tight enough that they know they will always be the one for you. Dont ever proceed a daytime without telling that person youre thinking about right now, that you love them.
The photo shoot was an understandably psychological happen for everyone involved. Jarstad told,
There was one moment when we were all reminiscing about Tristin and the sun separated through the glooms and we all were pretty overcome with excitement. I caught a few photos of it and it appeared as if he were there in the photo standing above her. His existence was very near and it was such a touching project to be a part of.
In a quote accompanying one of the photos, Lauren suggested,
Today is my wedding epoch. On October 11 th I didnt exactly lose Tristin, I lost the life well never live their lives, I lost all of the children well never have and all of the grandchildren well never get to botch, I lost my other half.
