Although we can’t control the weather, we have learned to treat everything like an opportunity. Even when the forecast shifts in an unexpected direction, we choose to seize the day, whatever it may bring. If it does rain while we are photographing, we will take it and make sweet batch of lemonade :)
Especially on the wedding day, there’s something thrilling about running headfirst into the rain, and capturing the beauty of nature in unexpected ways. Once you see the potential a rainy day holds, you just might find yourself hoping for raindrops!
Kristin and Ryan possess a stunning image that few other couples have. This photograph was taken in Colorado at 5,500 elevation. Being that both our camera Kristin and Ryan's umbrella were both metal, it wasn't our brightest idea. But since we all survived, it sure made for an amazing picture. We photographed 100 frames in about 20 seconds to precisely capture this bolt of lightning.
Yang and Kaisu had shifting weather patterns on their big day, and took every photo op in stride. This resulted in a breathtaking collection of photos, like this candid shot. The beautiful, floral framing alone would have made a nice image, but the rain falling in the background really kicked it up a few notches :)
Jenn and Nick's' wedding started off with bright, golden rays of sun during their day at the Coronado Cays Yacht Club. However, an unexpected blanket of fog quickly set in. Working within these conditions, we backlit Jenn and Nick, and captured the ambience of the moment.
