I first met Jenny a few years ago when she built the secret igloo. It was a really cool project that helped raise money for the school where my sister works, Celebrate the Children. The igloo was made from colored ice blocks which created a beautiful effect and made for some great images.
We connected on Facebook and when Jenny and Bill got engaged, they reached out to me to see if I would be interested in shooting their wedding. Even though I explained that it wasn’t really my main job, they were excited to work with me and I knew, with their creativity, it would be an awesome day.
The weather wasn’t great, but the details were. From the hand-painted utensils, to the folded paper bouquets, to the happy-tear hankies, to the custom glasses created for everyone… not to mention Bill’s anvil and Jenny’s hoops!
And, as luck would have it, we got a few minutes as the sun was setting, where it broke through the clouds and gave us a spectacular sky to work with.
I’m glad I was able to be part of their day and capture some moments that they will never forget.
