I have to admit, I’m actually a bit disappointed to be writing this blog post. Why? Well, because it means my time with Ashley and Alex is coming to a close. You see, while they decided to shoot their engagement photos in Indianapolis, Indiana, they’re tying the knot next year in Valparaiso and working with a photographer local to the area for their wedding. On the other hand, I am sssuuuppppppeerrrrr excited for their photographer to work with them. I don’t know who you are but you are going to LOVE photographing these two – total dream to work with… and possibly my largest engagement gallery to date! Of course, that may also be due in part to our 2-day engagement session because of this…
Everything started out dreamy – the lighting, the setting, the couple… and then out of nowhere, BOOM. In rolls these crazy clouds and the smell of storm in the air. There was no storm predicted, but it suddenly appeared on the radar while Ashley and Alex were changing outfits and I was shooting her ring. Did I mention everything about this session was straight dreamy!?
From there, we made use of the very little, rapidly fading light we had. I warned Ashley and Alex that we were likely to get rained out before our session was wrapped up and suggested we throw all caution to the wind and head down to the water for what time we had left. We had already had to reschedule once before for weather and we could then wrap up our session the next day at our originally planned-on location, which at this point would be far too dark to use anymore. Why not go for it?!Ashley and Alex jumped at the adventure and these stormy-weather shots are some of my favorites I’ve ever taken. It was all worth the sprint back to the car in the soaking downpour and I’d do it again in a heartbeat. Especially when day two was equally as magical and included frolicking in my favorite creek in formal attire. Insert alllll the heart eyes. 😍 😍 😍
So to Ashley and Alex, thank you for trusting me with this part of your journey as a couple. I believe in things that were meant to be – much like the two of you meeting in a fleeting moment two years prior to really connecting as a couple – and I believe that our session was meant to be interrupted by Mother Nature. Best of luck in your wedding planning and congratulations on your engagement! I hope our paths cross again!
