It’s Friday Night and I know, I know *my postings are later than I had hoped for*. No excuses, just been busy is all.
The wind is whipping and the rain keeps coming and going. Hurricane, or Tropical Storm Hanna is outside growling at my east coast right now. I can’t quite figure out why all these storms keep hanging around on the weekends. They are screwing up my shooting schedule. Bleh. The weather was so beautiful this morning, you’d have never known this storm was lurking (well unless you don’t have a radio, television or computer, that is.) - Let’s all hope everyone is safe and that everyone has somewhere to sleep tonight without worry.
This really isn’t a blog about the storm, but a blog about Kevin and Michelle. I got to shoot with two shooters for this wedding and that was so helpful. It’s nice having additional hands at the wedding. Here’s some of the day.
This is a collage of the few of the detail shots from the day. There was a memorial of their son who had passed which was really moving. Life is so precious. Enjoy and relish every minute.
I always love a bride putting her dress on for the first time, with that emerging rebirth expression on their faces. Just like the lifting of the veil is significant in a ceremony, I always felt as if this also is a point of realization on the wedding day and the emotions are usually priceless.
There was this really phenomenal window that we decided to capitalize on. I like the old worn texture on this too, feels so vintaged and antiqued.
Most often the day of the wedding goes by in the blink of an eye and I find things in post processing that was so fast paced at the wedding it’s hard to notice. When I was processing these, whenever I would see Michelle smile, I found myself feeling that same way. My heart smiled with her. I just thought she had one of those contagious smiles that just light up a room. It was the sunshine on the cloudy day. She has a gorgeous smile that makes everyone feel the need to smile right along with her.
And I’d be doing an injustice by not mentioning the guys. They were fun, as usual.. most, and I say most- guys are the life of the parties. They like to act and play gangsta, so we capitalize on that….
And I seem to get this alot, most of the time- I get stomped!
We had rain earlier that day, in fact wasn’t sure it would clear up for the ceremony- but it did. Left puddles everywhere. Yay! I love puddles!
I love textures. I love brick walls and the textures I use. Charleston is an amazing place for this, and I use them at every opportunity.
Congrats Kevin and Michelle. Loved spending your day with you.
Thanks Jaime and Tamara for the company for the day. I enjoyed having you guys around and shooting with me.
It’s about 11:37pm and the wind is picking up even heavier. This storm is actually supposed to make landfall by 2am so it will be a rough next few hours. I hope everyone stays safe!
