The day did not seem ideal to say the least. From a photographer’s perspective, it was more than a simple challenge. The temperatures were below comfort level, the rain was falling heavily, and the light was low. On top of that I was very, very sick. Once I made it to the venue where the prep and reception were to take place I got a glimpse of hope. Thankfully Erin and Chad are a very artistic couple. They have great style and a great appreciation for solid aesthetic. Over the first meeting with Chad all we could talk about was graphic design and woodworking. It was awesome. The Salvation Army Building brought in sick, deep tones. It pushed me to shoot indoor and achieve the look I love. If that day would have been full of sunshine and dry breeze, I wouldn’t have been forced to be creative and push past the norm. I loved every second of it. I felt fueled and energized.
I also appreciated Erin’s sense of taking her time. She wanted me for the early morning hours and the little moments that happen as the day unfolds. That allowed us for a longer time on details and prep, which I just adore. Because she chose that route, I left shortly after the cake cutting. There was no rushing or scurrying. Just peace and coffee.
Sick light for the win. This was the last image of the day and it made my heart explode.
