Last year when taking my maternity/family photos, I made Jess shoot through the thickest falling snow ever. It made for such a gorgeous backdrop, but it also made it hell on Jess being she couldn’t even use auto focus on her camera it was so heavy. I should have known when we set a date for her family photos, it was was going to snow like crazy. Payback it rough. :) Luckily it let up just before our shoot time and left us with just the most perfect blanket of freshly fallen snow.
Fall is a tricky time for weddings in northern Minnesota. It’s so hard to time when the leaves are going to change and when the weather is going to turn nasty. This couple timed it perfect though, and it made for such a lovely wedding day.
If rain on a wedding day is good luck….this couple is going to be the luckiest couple ever. It seriously never…stopped…raining. And of course they had planned for the sweetest little ceremony and reception to be outside. Needless to say, that didn’t happen. But between using roofs, dodging drops, and a giant umbrella, we were still able to get some of my favorite wedding photos to date!
Oh how I loved shooting this wedding. The day had the most beautiful boho vibe to it, and it didn’t hurt that the couple was so stinkin’ striking . Set in Duluth, we were able to shoot the bridal portraits on the rocky shore of Superior; and then the ceremony and reception took place in a gorgeous historic warehouse, that has been converted into a beautiful venue. As a photographer, it doesn’t get much better!
When the bride sends you a packet with a timeline, itinerary, and list of important people’s phone numbers weeks before the big day…..you know the wedding day is going to go perfect. And I must say, this gorgeous fall wedding didn’t disappoint!
Couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful autumn day for this lovely couple’s wedding. Add in a gorgeous, quaint chapel and the shores of Lake Superior….can’t be beat.
Even with the over four hours of pouring rain that occurred….I loved everything about this wedding day! The venue, that barn, and most of all the lovely couple.
