If you’ve followed life en plein air, I’m sure you’ve noticed that it has been very quiet around here lately. My plan when we moved to Ohio was to get settled into our new home, then dive right back into my regular photography schedule! But our life this year has been much more complicated than we expected, and my family has needed every little bit of me. So I quietly packed away my gear, referred inquiries to other photographers, and focused on our kids and our farm.
Still, when my sister-in-law asked me to photograph her wedding, of course I said yes!! It felt really good to be back behind the camera. Really, really good. I didn’t realize how deeply I miss it!!
On to the wedding. . .
This was the first time that I had met Whitney’s fiancé, but I could tell right away that they are perfect for each other! They are very sweet together, and I enjoyed watching them throughout the day. They both light up around each other, and their joy at being married is obvious.
The wedding day itself was a bit of a challenge for them. A terrible storm blew up as they were getting ready. We only had a minute or two for a first look before we had to take shelter! I was so disappointed for Whitney, because I knew she really wanted beautiful outdoor portraits! Thankfully, the downpour stopped just before the ceremony, and we were able to sneak in a few minutes for sunset portraits by the lake.
Whitney and Zach, I’m so happy for you, and so glad that we were able to share in your special day! I hope you love this preview of your photographs!
I saw these gorgeous, large rocks when I arrived at the venue and knew immediately I wanted to photograph the rings on them. In a coincidence, the officiant based his sermon that evening on the parable of the wise man who built his house upon the rock. It made me smile, because it made these ring shots even more meaningful!
Photographer’s son. Of course.
Seriously, how adorable is this cake topper? I love it so much!!
My mouth waters when I see the picture of the cupcakes. They were the most amazing cupcakes I’ve ever eaten in my whole life!
The best truly is yet to come. Whitney and Zach, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
