I’ve always been drawn to the storytelling aspect of wedding photography. Wedding days are full of so many different stories and wonderful moments! Getting to document all of them, then piece them together to create one amazing love story is one of my favorite things.
Nothing says summer in North Carolina like thick humidity in the morning and then dark storm clouds with a downpour of rain in the afternoon. Brittany and Miguel definitely got a taste of a true summer day in North Carolina. The morning started out normal with gorgeous sunshine and sporadic clouds. Brittany and her bridesmaids were getting ready at Mason Ridge, Brittany hiding the anxious smile on her face the whole time.
By the time Miguel and his groomsmen arrived the storm clouds rolled in. But that didn’t phase either of them. When the wind and the rain eventually did come it arrived just before the ceremony was about to start. We all decided to wait it out, knowing that rainstorms here don’t last that long usually. Everyone held their breath as the rain continued, hoping to see a break in the clouds. Brittany, surrounded by her mother and her bridesmaids, prayed for sunshine and for the rest of the day to run smoothly.
Thankfully, just as we were about to rearrange the entire schedule the sky opened up and the rain stopped!! Brittany got to walk down the aisle escorted by her father, exchange vows with her now husband and have her perfect wedding day! I was in awe the whole time and so thankful that the rain had stopped. I captured pure joy that day and when it was all over it just reaffirmed by love for wedding photography. I hope ya’ll enjoy these awesome photos!!
