It sure looked like it was going to be one rainy Saturday. It was all over the weather forecasts… thunderstorms, lightning, oodles of rain… that was the kind of day the meteorologists were predicting. Not the kind of day that photographers want for an engagement session… seriously, it was predictions for the kind of day where I wanted to go outside and combine rain-stopping dances and chant “Rain, rain, go AWAY! Come again… anytime I’m not going out for a photo shoot!”
So the morning started out as predicted… thunder, lightning, torrential rain… the works. I called Shawna and we cancelled the shoot. By about midday, the sky was bluer than blueberries and the sun was having a grand ol’ time drying up the soggy earth…. but those meteorologists… they were still calling for those angry thunderstorms that would keep the Wicked Witch of the West indoors for fear of the sky opening up at any moment and pouring the heavens down on her, even with blue skies.
We decided to scoff in the face of those predictions and by mid-afternoon, our photo session was back on and we were off to Ajax Rotary Park to capture some awesome moments! Good thing we did too… because it turned out to be an amazing afternoon with gorgeous sunset lighting! And with the few rain droplets we felt near the end of our session, it was hardly the hell-raising havoc that was predicted. So much for relying on accurate weather forecasts.
Shawna & Kevin: I had so much fun capturing your fun moments together and getting to know you so much better on this shoot. You guys are so amazing as a couple and I can’t wait to capture your special memories in October. I know there’s going to be much laughter and crazy moments and I really am looking forward to being a part of that day!
Much love and appreciation, Jenne.
I told you this would end up on my blog Kevin!
Quite possibly one of my favourites of all time… something so sleek about the way these two look!
Love the looks they’re giving each other… smokin’!
He was brushing some stray strands of hair out of Shawna’s face… after the wind blew them away already.
I’m so lucky to have such great shoes to photograph on these sessions! I love my girls and their styles! Maybe I’ll do a post on the fab shoes I’ve captured from all of my sessions!
Couldn’t have asked for better lighting at the end of the shoot… this was literally the last image I captured on my camera… awesome!
