I’m writing this on the way home from today because I’m overwhelmed with pure gratitude that I had the opportunity to photograph such a genuine, BEAUTIFUL (in all caps for dramatic effect) couple. They welcomed us with warm smiles and the energy of anticipation and excitement hung in the air. I was already excited because it was cloudy and let’s be honest, that’s the best lighting. BUT, then I saw the bridesmaids dresses, and THAT VEIL…… a recipe for a fairytale. I was in love, inspired and so pumped for the day.
It was a miracle that the rain held off long enough for Dani and Clayton to promise each other forever in front of the serene mountain backdrop. Danielle avoided looking at the forecast all afternoon and remained so hopeful that it would pass. They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, but these two, they don’t need it. It’s as if they were cut from the same cloth. Selfless and compassionate, their friends and family described during toasts. They both leave a little sunshine wherever they go. You’ll see that throughout these photographs, and I hope you get even a small glimpse into the magical love of Danielle and Clayton.
