How do I even fully encompass my love for this wedding? Carina and Ernie are just *joyful* people. So happy. During their first look, they just laughed and laughed and giggled and laughed. It was a STUNNING day, but in a way that life is stunning and unpredictable and glorious. After almost eight glorious years of this, I’ve only photographed one, maybe two weddings, in a downpour. Most brides would never dream of walking down the aisle while water pelleted her from the sky…but Carina said, “I don’t give a fuck what happens. I have an umbrella, I’m getting married at 4pm.”
I admit, I don’t know if I really believed her. So imagine my shock as I photographed this ceremony….in a down pour. My second shooter, Sloan, was up all up in that shit. He mentioned earlier in the day about wanting to be a war photographer and this dude delivered like it was a wedding war zone. Amy and her daughter, the venue owners of Gardens of Cranesbury View were so accommodating, trying to pass out as many umbrellas at all. That venue is *stunning*. Straight out of European inspiration. I poured myself into this wedding, this venue being quite inspirational.
This season has had some amazing clients, clients that let me be free to be myself, to do what I love most in this world (outside of creamy pasta…I miss you). I have a few more weddings this year that are promising to be quite epic. Pumpkin season is over, but that just makes room for peppermint season, which I AM VERY EXCITED FOR. The remainder of 2018 is going to be spectacular. 2019 is going to be a super rad year. I’m into all of it!!!!
Thanks to all of the rad vendors that made this rainy day unforgettable:
