A Soaking Wet Wedding Sampler
You know the thought that pops into my head the most while I’m shooting weddings?
I consider logistics. I calculate my color theory, the balance between colors. I think of the amount of light. Is it hard or soft. Could the photo be improved. Diffuse one or twice. How’s the pose? Do I have my S-Curve? How big is my pallette, and where’s the dedicated color combo?
But what pops in my head most is: I can’t believe I’m getting paid for this. This is too much fun. It’s technical, artistic, energizing, hilarious, heartfelt, important, timeless, and boy. Is there ever a lot of adventure. No two weddings are the same.
And after, I look at the photos and they almost bring a tear to my eye. The way everything comes together. Months of planning, skill, 11 bridesmaids and groomsmen working tirelessly, parents giving it their everything. And it all ends in this one glorious day in Victoria. Also, this is where it begins.
A ton of support, everyone wishing well and giving it their all.
And the venue was dreamlike. An old farmhouse, a greenhouse, and an orchard. I felt like I was in another time. My mind exploded with all the photographic opportunities.
And then it started raining. Didn’t slow us down. Nothing can stop the love train.
A few kisses under the umbrella….
And then a few more at the breakwater. You’ll really want to stick around for the full album. The photos you can take on a stormy day on the breakwater will really blow your mind. Also, it will probably destroy your wedding dress too. If you’re considering it. If you are, shoot me an email. Let’s talk.
The evening was over before we realized it. The sun had set, it was time to head to our venue.
Keep in mind, though, this is a preview sampler. That’s a small section of rainy day images designed to whet your appetite (see what I did there?). Check back in a week or so and you’ll enjoy many more of these images. Feel free to give me a follow on instagram as well, they’ll be images popping up there. 😀
