This sweet couple had their fall engagement session rained out. And I mean rained out! We were watching the weather all day and really thought the rain would hold off because, despite the forecast, the early part of the day was full of promise. Slightly overcast (photographer’s dream) but no rain seemed to be threatening. At least that’s what we had hoped.
But Adriana and Shawn showed their flexibility and positive attitude and so we headed off for their ‘golden hour’ photos even if the clouds were going to ruin the party. Little did we know that the heavens were going to open up and be relentless just when we were getting started. We had chosen a beautiful forest pathway filled with open sky, tall grasses made brown by the approaching fall and snapped only a few images before the rain started.
We moved to where there was more canopy but even that wouldn’t work. Finally we settled on the indoor gazebo and we managed to get some lovely pics (again – mostly because of that positive attitude they had!). But we knew we could do better……if we didn’t have the rain. And did I mention that their beloved Roxie joined in on the fun? She was there to make the official ‘save the date’ announcement! And to let us know that their wedding would not be complete without Roxie making an appearance!
I am so looking forward to celebrating with these two and their family next August!
