Documentary family photos in the rain – Tick!
I had the pleasure of shooting Hannah & Wayne’s wedding day at the Pheasantry Brewery in the UK, but just before that we had found out we were moving to Canada and so I couldn’t manage to fit in their engagement photos beforehand.
Instead, they decided to have some post-wedding family photos instead when I was next back in the country a few months later.
Just as we were heading out to the location we’d picked out, we saw the big black clouds rolling in. Then followed a giant storm. But they were still game! In fact, the rain really did make it so much more magical for the kids and the couple. We laughed, jumped, ran, giggled and got soaked. But it made for some incredible pictures for the family I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know!
