Chantelle contacted me last fall about photographing her wedding, and I have been looking forward to it ever since! From talking with her, I knew the wedding would be really beautiful, and of course I love working with people who are excited about pictures… the ceremony and reception took place at the Johnson Museum of Art on the Cornell campus, which I have never been to but was really looking forward to photographing.
I met up with the girls at the salon in the afternoon.
Doesn’t she look lovely?! Her dress was perfect for her, it was exactly what I pictured after talking to her!
This was the rainiest wedding I’ve ever shot (and my worst hair day ever
except the time I cut the cowlick out of my bangs when I was 5) it just poured buckets all day with no letup, but we didn’t let that stop us! Chantelle and Rob did a first sight in front of the museum… I think Rob was waiting for me to tell him to look, which was really funny! I don’t usually direct stuff like this so I was in my little “shooting bubble” and thinking “Huh, why isn’t he turning around?” It was a great moment.
But he finally did turn around!
The ceremony was out on the sculpture court… the court is covered, but if it had been windy all the rain would’ve blown in, so we did get lucky with that aspect of it!
You know I got the real kiss, but I wanted to post this moment instead, it’s my favorite!
Almost too beautiful to eat. Almost.
I loved shooting at the museum, it was so beautiful! This shot cracks me up… everything you need to know about the weather that day!
Chantelle is such a happy bride, I love it! Nothing phased her, she just kept smiling.
Rob didn’t want to dance to the weird techno Whitney Houston… I didn’t blame him.
We also braved the elements for a quick shot outside.
Then headed for shelter.
Thank you so much for having me Chantelle and Rob!
