I tossed and turned the night before Sally and Derek’s wedding in Denton, Texas at the gorgeous Southern Inspired Mansion, The Milestone. It poured rain all night and I just KNEW that we were not going to be able to take this amazing couple outside to photos. So I worried (it’s just what I do). Then I decided to formulate a plan and then I got excited. We were going to make the MOST of a rainy wedding day and I began to get really excited!!!! My plan involved umbrellas and complicated back lighting with several flashes and I began to pack the rain gear into our camera bags. I woke the next morning READY for the rain. Then……it stopped. Right as we arrived at The Milestone the rain ended and then we were just left with a cloudy day and a bunch of puddles. BOOOO!!! On to plan C. 🙁
Even though it started off rainy and ended mostly cloudy the weather did NOTHING to overshadow the joy of the day. Sally and Derek’s day was perfect. Even though I was initially bummed about the weather, then excited about the prospect of some cool rainy night photos, then that plan went out the window I was reminded of what I love MOST about this job. That every couple’s story is different and they are all perfect simply because it’s THEIR story. It is how their day was and I want to be able to document their unique day in a way that will instantly bring them right back to those moments.
