Lisa & Alex’s wedding day has such a great story. Their wedding day was a rainy summer day and though the it held off for the family and wedding party photo-session, as soon as we started the couple’s portraits, it started to pour. Not to worry, we had two big golf umbrellas and a great coffee shop overhang. Soon however, the golf umbrellas were no match, and we ran to a clothing store.
In the store, we grabbed a few fun shots, but the couple were anxious to continue their portraits so we ventured into the rain, stopping at a beautiful brick overhang. Lisa & Alex were able to keep dry and my assistant held the umbrella, while I took some beautiful photographs of the couple. The streaming down rain created a soft, dreamlike effect. Within a few minutes however, the rain started coming down hard again and we were forced to take shelter. As fate would have it, at that very moment, a woman approached us and invited us to take the bridal portraits in her beautiful studio apartment. Her home was so lovely and a fantastic backdrop for the couple. As we finished up our photographs, we noticed the rain had stopped and the sun was coming out. As we prepared to leave, our hostess gave the bride and groom a bottle of wine. We couldn’t believe it!
That isn’t the end of the story however, after we left the apartment, Lisa decided that she would love to take a walk and get some ice cream. Once the couple ordered their cones, Alex realized they didn’t have any cash! No problem, the man next in line stepped in and paid for them! What a lovely story! Who says that you can’t rely on the kindness of strangers!
It was such a beautiful day and I was so happy to be part of that experience.
