It’s funny. I find that when people reminisce about weddings, the weather pops up first. It plays in to the feel of the day and puts guests back into their seats feeling it all over again.
As the photographer, I look at weather differently. It’s about limitations and opportunities. Rain keeps you inside, look for the light from a window. Sun has you scouting for shaded locations. Swampy forests, though beautiful in pictures, have you running from hungry mosquitos. (unfortunately, on this day, there was nowhere to run!)
As I mentioned before, Danielle and James got married in the exact same spot I did. Well, not the exact same spot. My wedding day, in May was too cold to be held outside, so the fine folks at Beantown Ranch made the last minute decision to hold the ceremony indoors. So Danielle and James got married in the exact same spot that I was supposed to be married on.
But on their wedding day, in June, the weather was spectacular. The sun was shining. A few pretty cods dotted the sky. A faint breeze kept us cool.
And the Bride and Groom? I couldn’t have asked for better. So relaxed. So funny. And so in love. My face hurt from laughing all day, and I was not the only one. It was truly picture perfect.
Thanks to Danielle and James for taking awesome up a to the next level. I feel honoured to have been there and to have captured these moments for you.
