Melanie and Rob eloped a couple of weeks ago. Their wedding was the first elopement that I have ever photographed. I can’t believe how romantic it was! Two of my amazing clients from 2010, Chelsea and Jon (you can check out their wedding post here) hired me to be the couples photographer as a wedding gift. It was a beautiful ceremony that only had 6 people in attendance, including the Justice of the Peace and I. Rob is in the army, so I love that he wore his uniform and Melanie looked radiant in her sweet, tea length dress and beautiful heels.
As it happens quite often, the only time to take the photographs of the bridal party and bride and groom during a wedding day falls during one of the worst times to take pictures… mid-day. Typically, a photographers nightmare. Not only is it super hot then, but the sun is directly above the couple and can cast bad light on the couple. These pictures are great examples of making use of shade for getting gorgeous and romantic photos in a sunny situation.
Now, for the pictures!
The super sweet bridal party
I just love these two!
I love lavender- the scent, the blossoms, everything! If I see a lavender field and I’m with a bride and groom, you can be sure that I will get them in there, amidst the lavender.
Their beautiful rings!
