This session is one for the books! Not only are some of the shots my favorite that I’ve ever done, but it was quite an interesting afternoon. When we arrived at the location we saw a big cloud coming our way and I thought, “hmm, I should probably get some good sun shots in now before I lose the sun for good.” I don’t know why I didn’t follow my gut, but I didn’t take those shots. We started shooting and laughing and they told me all about their love story. About 20 minutes into the session, it started to drizzle…”Nah,” I thought. “The forecast said there was only a 10% chance of rain and it’s been gorgeous all day…” within minutes it was pouring! I quickly hid my camera under my shirt and we ran back to our cars. Through our car windows, I looked at Mallory and mouthed, “WANNA JUST GO WITH IT??” I certainly wasn’t done with the session and needed more pictures. They were both so easy going, we went with it! They started dancing and kissing in the rain…laughing…who cares if we got soaked!! It couldn’t have been more perfect! Could there be any other two gorgeous people who get soaked and still look absolutely stunning?! You can’t even tell that they are soaked in most of the pictures! After about 15 minutes of a down pour, the clouds opened up and the sun started shining. I could still get my sun shots!!
We originally were gonna do some shots at the track where Derek rides dirt bikes, but it was closed due to the recent storms. I was really excited to do something different at the tracks but I’m honestly so happy with the way it all turned out! And Derek still got to wear his gear.—We then quickly got some margaritas and it was a perfect ending to a perfect session!
I had a very hard time choosing which photos to blog and which ones to leave out because I just love so many!!
Mallory and Derek, ya’ll are amazing! You are both beautiful and your love for each other is just beaming from your hearts. I can’t wait to be the second shooter at your wedding next May with Carolyn Kipper Photography!
