Stormy Weather Wedding and Dealing with an Experienced Event Photographer

Christen and Kyle Ellis’s wedding happened in the dark, after a tornado, moments after the power outage that tortured us all for the next week! We drove in ditches, around downed trees and power lines, and sweat like cattle. It was most certainly stormy weather of the most literal kind! Very few times have I counted on all the experience I have had with a camera in my hand to this extent. People chuckle sometimes when they see me come through the door with my rolling toolbox of tricks and extra gadgets, but they came in handy this night including extra flashes, extra tripods, white boards. and so much more. If you consider hiring a photographer who is just starting out, pray for anything but a night like this. Someone who shows up with their shoulder bag, filled with their flash and their camera body would have made this wedding invisible.

Their wedding went successfully though, with serene smiles on their faces, and a group of loving family around them, in a room with very little natural light. It is for that reason that I ask you to forgive the shadows.

At the end of the day, downtown in Fort Wayne’s beloved History Center, it was all good. The weather was a distant memory, and it had blown away some heat, temporarily. We went off on our own (which you know by now I LOVE to do) and got the tipsy love birds doing what lovebirds do best. We didn’t care by that time that none of our homes had power. We were giddy, and silly and happy. It was a good GOOD day after all.
