I received a phone call from a very sweet gentleman asking if I was available for a wedding last-minute. It just so happened that my weekend had opened up unexpectedly. He was calling for his niece’s wedding: he actually is a photographer himself but decided he wold prefer to enjoy the wedding instead of having the stress of photographing the event. After a phone conversation and some email correspondence. I was given all of the needed information and sent off my good faith agreement as a promise that I would arrive.
The church was directly across from the Capitol Buildings in Olympia, and we were hoping to get some formal portraits with the beautiful background. The night before the wedding, it was raining quite hard, and all hopes of getting the outdoor shots was going out the window. I didn’t think the bride wanted to have her trash the dress session prior to the wedding! But lo and behold, the morning of the wedding the clouds parted just long enough to get some beautiful shots before the ceremony began.
The ceremony was beautiful, followed by a fun, laid back reception, complete with pizza and sparkling cider!
