Lindsay + Warren | St. Joseph Country Club wedding

September 21st, 2011

I was positive it would rain on Lindsay and Warren’s wedding day. Now mind you, I didn’t WANT it to rain – hardly – but every forecast pointed towards a significant amount of rain coming in an inescapably large weather system. Luckily, I was wrong.

I was positive it would rain on Lindsay and Warren’s wedding day. Now mind you, I didn’t WANT it to rain – hardly – but every forecast pointed towards a significant amount of rain coming in an inescapably large weather system. Luckily, I was wrong. It rained one time in the morning – and although the clouds were thick and it was a bit blustery, it stayed dry for us the rest of the day. These two and their families were a joy to work with – and that’s the one theme that ran through the entire day, the closeness of family. It was flat out awesome – and tear-jerking at times. The lovely ceremony was held at the gorgeous St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church near downtown St. Joseph, with a lovely, traditional reception at the elegant St. Joseph Country Club. Many congratulations to Lindsay, Warren, and their families! Thanks to Nancy Sikes for 2nd shooting with me.

Lindsay is SUPER attached to her new niece, Madelyn, who served as one of the flower girls.

Lindsey + Gary: married | St. Joseph wedding photographers

May 17th, 2010

Gosh darn it, it did it AGAIN! It rained. This wedding season has been a bit, um, tough on those of us in the photography business. I’ve shot 4 weddings so far this season, and we’ve had a snowstorm, 2 rainstorms (both in St. Joseph), and a cloudy day where the sun decided to NOT […]

 

Gosh darn it, it did it AGAIN!

It rained.

This wedding season has been a bit, um, tough on those of us in the photography business. I’ve shot 4 weddings so far this season, and we’ve had a snowstorm, 2 rainstorms (both in St. Joseph), and a cloudy day where the sun decided to NOT be bashful for a short while. The good news? I’m getting used to it. The better news? It didn’t affect the awesomeness of Gary and Lindsey’s day at ALL.

I met these two last fall and shot their engagement session in Kansas City’s River Market on a (ahem) very sunny evening. I always love to work with clients before their wedding day – it establishes a rapport and gets any “camera shyness” out of the couple’s system. So, I was really looking forward to this wedding, right up I-29 in St. Joseph, Missouri.

Naturally, it was dry up until time to head out to shoot bride/groom and wedding party shots – then it cut loose. We decided to make the best of it and headed for a parking garage at Lindsey’s suggestion. It didn’t stop the rest of the day – but what can I say, they always say it’s good luck if it rains on your wedding day…

Hope it is nice and SUNNY in Mexico right now, guys!

I was warned that Callie, Lindsey’s niece, liked to “cheese” for the camera. We also found some shyness, too..

I had these shots, with the rain, orchestrated in my head ALL day. It had pretty much stopped by this point (naturally, when I WANTED it to rain), but there were still a few small drops in the air…
