When I first met Dale to chat about her wedding photos, she brought pages and pages of tear sheets of wedding photos she loved, and they all had a common theme – rich, golden and sun-drenched.

When we shot Dale and Dan’s engagement shoot on the beach at the Spit, it was the first sunny day for weeks and I thanked the Weather Gods for smiling on us. Things were looking good for Dale’s dream wedding photos, right?

When Dale and Dan got married, it rained.

All day.

Dale shrugged her shoulders and smiled and said, “oh well,” and proceeded with one of the most touching and personal weddings I have ever had the pleasure to attend.

I also got to make friends with three seriously awesome girls – here’s a shoutout to my photobooth bridesmaid BFFs Felicity, Baylee and Maddy! Keep an eye out at the bottom of the post for a couple of shots of our awesomeness, courtesy of The Photo Pod.
