Britni & Rashawd…
12 years ago this same weekend, I said “I do” to my husband Rob. It was a beautiful sunny day with blue skies and big white puffy clouds. This weekend we saw rain, sunshine, rain, hail, rain, snow, sunshine, and some more rain….global warming? The weather didn’t stop us from capturing some fabulous images of Britni and Rashawd. The ceremony was at University Presbyterian Church in Seattle. Even though it was crazy weather, there are fabulous overhangs outside the church that allowed us to continue to shoot outside when it did rain.
As Britini got ready for her big day, her mother lovingly helped her daughter lace up her dress. I loved all the details of this gorgeous dress!
Just before the rain started, we caught some fun shots of Britini outside the church. In these next two shots, she was being playful with her dress and kicking up her heels.
Rashawd was blown away by the beauty of his bride.
April (www.aprilgreer.com) was second shooting for me this weekend. It is always a treat to have her vision along. She suggested the garage for shooting. Britini and Rashawd totally trusted me when I asked them to go into the garage of the building. I caught this lovely shot of them inside the garage. My assistant Tammy was holding an umbrella over me so my equipment didn’t get wet.
The sun came out for a minute and this sexy shot was the result. I love the umbrella leisurely hanging out of his hand.
It started to POUR buckets. But Britni and Rashawd were under a 3 foot cover in the church courtyard. If they moved a few inches they would have been soaked. Again, thanks to big umbrellas, April, Tammy, and I were able to get what we wanted from them despite the rain.
During the ceremony, the rain stopped and they were able to exit the building without risk of getting wet from anything but a bunch of bubbles.
TIME TO CELEBRATE!!!
The Edgewater was the reception venue. As the sky turned to dusk, I asked them for one last shot and this beautiful image was created. I love the reflection of the chandelier in the window.
