Rainy Wedding Pictures | Props for Rainy Wedding Pictures | Bella Sera Wedding Reception | Tori & Brandon

Tori contacted me regarding her May wedding and reminded me that I photographed her soon to be sister and brother in laws wedding a couple of years ago.  I remember Lisa and Eric immediately.  Another cool aspect of my job is that I have the opportunity to bump into my old clients by way of their family members or friends getting married.  It is very neat to see my couples again when I can.

I remembered Tori and Brandon back then, attending the wedding.  “Wow,” I thought, “they must have been together for awhile now.”  Turns out they have been together since high school.  What impressed me the most about these two- is that even after all of these years… after all of their growing up… they were still totally infatuated with one another.  It was a great thing to experience.

How perfect a way to close the wedding day letter?

Bride and flower girl.  This is a moment she will remember forever.

Those guys were proud of their pink socks.  I think they looked sharp!

Rainy day props!  A few days earlier Tori had emailed me expressing her concern that it was going to rain.  “Nah,” I said.  “I think we will be fine.”  “I’ll just get some umbrella’s incase,” she responded.  Haha. I am glad that she realized that I am a photographer and not a weather forecaster.  It was totally raining.  =)

This showed the gentleness between them.

Bella Sera looked great with all of their decor.

Group Shot!!!!  Gotta get one of these whenever you can.  Everyone was a good sport about it.

I played around a little with the sparkler pic.  I think it looks pretty darn cool!
