Now I hate to start a blog post with a recounting of the weather that day (bo-ring) as it has nothing to do with Sherilyn and Tanner, but that’s precisely the point in this case. We woke that Saturday morning to dangerously grey skies and an ominous thunder rumble in the distance… although you wouldn’t have known otherwise to be around the bride and groom. They were the perfect picture of a young couple in love, eager to take the next step. (The next step, sans shoes, of course — Sherilyn walked down the aisle barefoot. Hey, why not? I respect a girl who does what she wants on her wedding day! )
Just as it started to rain. It must be true love — hehe, Sherilyn didn’t even give one thought to the drops spattering her dress or the rain dampening her curls.
I was beside myself over that tandem bike we happened across. Throw a happy, carefree bride in the mix; toss a gallant groom onto the front seat; and voila: I’m melting.
The rain showers stopped just long enough for us to capture these beautiful moments. And the tones! And just like that, the rain becomes a blessing, giving us the most splendid color and light.
I don’t think these two ever stopped smiling. The entire day.
This is the photograph that finds my eyes getting a little watery. Such an excited bride and one proud poppa.
Song break! Was feeling daring enough to hop up behind the string of bridesmaids to snap a few photos during a hymn. Ordinarily during a ceremony I try to remain as invisible as possible, but hey, when everyone’s looking down and making noise, yeah, I’m going to risk it! And I’m immensely glad I did because again, I’m suffering from another case of the watery eyes with how adorable these two are.
That smile. This is what a wedding is all about.
Fact: I like photographing happy people.
Before I go, let me just say: Tanner and Sher, you guys are awesome. Srsly. Way to keep it real.
