Madeleine & James heard about me through a family friend whom I had shot two years in a row for their family portraits. After email exchanges, we met at a Jack Astor to chill and talk details back in March. They were both pretty cool folks and a great fit. Together, we went through the day and I got a better idea of how they had planned the start-to-finish with the help of Erin, our energetic wedding planner. The theme for the wedding was Camaro, whose love James keeps close to the heart and Madeleine got into as well after meeting him! With lots of amazing and unique shots to be had with the theme at hand in my mind, we all hoped April 14th was going to be pleasantly warm. Not all wishes are meant to come true though. 😉
It turned out that Boreas (the Greek god of North wind and winter) had something entirely different in store for us. I arrived at Madeleine’s around 11:20am having survived the early stages of a big hailstorm underway. The weather was menacing and dropping in temperature gradually. Many had already swapped out their winter tires with spring ones in anticipation of a warm spring so accidents were taking place at an unusual rate. Indoors, we were all safe!
