Wedding & Portrait Photography

The air was thick and hot when I arrived at Twin Tails Farm on the morning of Janelle and Mark’s wedding. So it was no surprise–and actually a welcomed relief!–when it poured hard for ten minutes just before I planned to take the bridal party outside for a few portraits. Often the chance of showers can discourage a couple from having an outdoor ceremony in the woods, but it didn’t even seem to be a passing thought for these two. They just rolled on with their warm smiles and infectiously positive attitudes, focused on enjoying the company of all the friends and family who surrounded them. They would’ve been perfectly happy had their ceremony been moved inside, but that hot air dried everything in minutes and we continued to stroll around the stunning venue grounds taking advantage of all the pretty places to shoot.  Janelle didn’t bat an eye when I asked her to jump over the water and onto a floating dock for their first look (in my defense, I scoped the pond out prior to the rain shower and it didn’t seem like much of a leap at the time!), and they both just laughed when Mark’s brother couldn’t find his prayer flag during the flag stringing ceremony (and in his brother’s defense, he later did find it just where he put it in his pocket!). And at the end of the night, when it was raining big fat plops of drops, Janelle and Mark eagerly jumped at the chance to dance in the rain for a beautiful night portrait.
These two souls are wise beyond their years and they know that the unexpected moments will always arise and if you let them come and go, they will only make your life a little more colorful and make the moments you share with those you love into joyous memories that you will never forget. And I am TRULY so thankful I was asked to witness and capture their unforgettable day.
