May was filled with lots of shooting which means June has started out with long, late night editing sessions. First on the list was Melissa and Glenn’s Dripping Springs, Texas wedding. Their wedding was right smack dab in the middle of all that flooding we were experiencing in Texas. I prepped for the worst, buying new fun umbrellas, rain boots, a stack of rain ponchos and waterproof coverings for our gear.
With 60% -90% chance of rain the night before, I started praying. I’d heard all about the venue Vista West Ranch from Melissa as well as a few photographer friends. That it was a “photographer’s dream” and the plans for an outdoor ceremony with a peony and eucalyptus spotted archway. I wanted to shoot rain free, I wanted Melissa to have her dream outdoor ceremony among the hills of Texas hillcountry. We left Houston early in the morning and after a brief sprinkle the skies opened up and the sun shone brightly and Texas showed us how beautiful it can be. There was not a drop of rain the rest of the day.
There are so many beautiful images from this wedding that I’m going to have to share it in two parts. And without further ado, here’s part one.
Did you notice the flower girl’s face during the kiss? Kills me!!
More to come in part 2!
