Where to start. This wedding day was unexpectedly perfect. The original plan had been for an outdoor ceremony on the river, but lots and lots of rain quickly derailed that plan. Olivia and Erik accepted that change with poise and grace, and were simply excited to be married. We started the day at Olivia’s apartment where the girls were getting ready, and made our way to the venue to put on her dress. The overcast day + the window-filled venue made for a gorgeous backdrop. We even had some time in between rain showers for outdoor photos before the ceremony. Olivia is so much fun to photograph, as she was a model in a past life. Erik was equally as much fun…the way he looked at Olivia all day left no doubt in anyone’s mind that these two were made for each other.
Adam and I shot this wedding with a more dark and moody feel than our norm – which was the couple’s preference. I cannot even tell you how much I love these images. I don’t know if YOU can tell, but to me they are so different from what I usually do, and it was a lot of fun to step out of my box and experiment a bit. The rainy day lent itself perfectly to the darker feel that Olivia desired, and made the ceremony and reception seem so cozy and comfortable. The toasts and dancing and celebrating carried on oblivious to the thunder and lightning outside the dark windows at the reception. I could go on and on, but…let’s just move on to the photos. Congrats to Liv + Erik. You two lovebirds are bound for wonderful things! Thanks for asking Adam and I to photograph + film your beautiful day!
