I was looking forward to a new location for this engagement session. The day was beautiful, sunny and PERFECT. Then I pulled into the parking lot 15 minutes early and saw the dark clouds above. Almost like perfect timing, the rain started just as this couple pulled up. We talked about our options and I said, if we are all here and dressed let’s take a few and play around a little. If you don’t like them, we can reshoot. Can I tell you I had the BEST time shooting under an umbrella in the rain. We ended the session with the couple dancing in a light rain. It was so much fun! The couple loved them too and there was no need to reshoot.
So, this has totally changed my view on shooting the rain. We have to avoid it most of the time, but I will never forget this session in the rain! Totally original!

I have a story to tell you about this picture. We were at the Sonnet House a few weeks ago and I noticed this curtain before the bride was dressed. I made a note to myself to get a shot of her through the curtain after she put her dress on. The day went on and as I walked in the room, I saw her standing by herself adjusting the side of her dress. Snap. I then told her to stand and pose for two shots. There were lots of women in the room so it was really neat to capture the first picture without anyone in it and in the end… I only kept the natural shot. It was the one that made Cory and I gasp when we were looking through the wedding the first time. I love capturing the natural and even when we try to set it up…sometimes the natural unposed shots work best!
