Tiffany and James in the cold november rain…

James and Tiffany's wedding at the Magnolia United Church of Christ and Canal.

Here are some gorgeous portraits I got of Tiffany and James a couple weeks ago. The weather on their wedding day was about as bad as you could ask for, a rainy/dark/cold November afternoon in Seattle. But when you have a great couple to work with, and know some lighting tricks, you can get pictures that look like this ๐Ÿ™‚

A lot of brides and grooms worry about rain on the wedding day, but I never do. I just say grab some cute umbrellas and have fun with it if the rain comes. There is no reason you can’t get great pictures if you are willing to get out there!

You might also wonder how Tiffany kept her dress from getting filthy standing on train tracks covered in wet dirty leaves…. Well I was prepared for that as well. I always bring a little piece of canvas that makes a perfect little platform to protect the dress ๐Ÿ˜‰

So I’m finally posting one of my favorite weddings from last year. This group was a lot of fun to work with, and we had the craziest weather I’ve seen at a summer wedding. There was sideways rain, thunderclouds, rainbows, and a small window of sun. Everything was coordinated by Occasions Wedding and Event Planning.

I shot about 30 frames in this series, and this is probably one of only 5-10 where their hair wasn't blowing straight up. It was like a wind tunnel. But we managed to keep everyone dry and looking good ๐Ÿ™‚

They sang one of my all time favorite songs during the ceremony, "Everlong" by the Foo Fighters.
