Saturday afternoon I went to the venue for the wedding I'm to photograph. Pretty place - rustic with charm oozing from every exposed wooden beam. Neat place with lots of character and as many suitable spots for pictures.
It was hot as blazes while I was there getting the 50-cent tour with the owner. I'm praying for a few clouds on the big day so I can get some outdoor shots in the shade. Yep, there are some trees that provide shade and each location will be utilized to its fullest -anything to prevent the bride's white dress from being one glowing mass.
We have had two nights in a row of booming thunder and lightning with nary a drop of rain. Quite a spectacle to watch and hear but everything outside needs water to survive. Finally, this afternoon we had some clouds glide through and blessed us with a bit of rain -- 1/4 inch in the rain gauge. MIGHTY nice. Thank you, Lord!!
