During every wedding I shoot, I have an ongoing checklist in my mind to make sure I’m not missing anything. As a wedding photographer, I have the constant challenge of creating beautiful images in a day where, inevitably, not everything will go exactly as planned. Last Saturday was a perfect example of things not going as planned…it rained…a lot! But thanks to great planning on Melissa and Ryan’s part, we were able to get a TON of portraits done before the ceremony AND before the rain came. They even prepared enough to have umbrellas on hand for their guests!
Even though it rained, it was still such a beautiful day! Melissa and Ryan were so calm and yet so filled with joy! Their reactions during the first look were some of the sweetest I’ve seen! (see below). Buddy and I had such a great time celebrating with these two and their friends and family–what a wonderful celebration!!
Melissa and Ryan, congratulations on your marriage and have fun on your climbing adventure! Come hang out at the farm soon! 🙂
Best first look reaction ever!I loooove Buddy’s angle!Love this!! These guys were so much fun!
Melissa and Ryan Met at a climbing gym. A ton of their climbing friends came and they all brought their climbing shoes! What a great group of friends!!
