I’ve talked in previous posts about the seasons and how they can change the mood, colors, and backdrops to a wedding day. Well, anyone who’s lived in Virginia long enough understands that we often will change seasons based on a whim rather than the increasingly arbitrary calendar. So, as a photographer, if you can’t shoot in the rain/cold/hail/blazing sunshine then weddings in the mid-Atlantic probably aren’t your thing.
Why do I bring this up? Because for Nikki and P.J., their May wedding turned a little cold and a little rainy. That’s the bad news. The good news is that Nikki and PJ are two of the easiest going, fun loving, and genuine couples we know. They knew they were getting married, that they were surrounded by family and that they were about to have a fantastic party with their friends. And honestly, when you see Nikki’s big, warm smile as she comes down the aisle towards P.J., I would have been surprised if anyone noticed the rain.
