Valerie asked me to be her photographer for the temple and she was planning on asking someone else to shoot the reception so I could enjoy the festivities. Boy, am I glad. Shooting a wedding is a ton of work and there was a bunch of people that both Kaitlyn and I were able to reunite with at the reception.
Valerie’s wedding was plagued with poor weather. There were forecasted thunderstorms for most of the weekend. This meant that, as her photographer, I needed to do some planning. I decided to ask her if she was okay with taking her wedding pictures the day before her wedding, since there was nicer weather. She and Brad agreed that would be a good idea and we took most of their pictures on Friday rather than Saturday. This turned out to be a good idea, since Saturday poured rain for most of the day. Luckily, there was about a twenty-thirty minute break after the temple ceremony that allowed me to take some group pictures. Since, I was worried the weather might return, I rushed through the picture taking. It was a little chilly outside, but luckily we finished most of the group pictures I had planned before the rain and wind came back, which prevented us from taking anymore group pictures. Overall, they turned out good.
