Summer in the City
Summer wedding weather is always a guessing game, often right up to the last minute. We carry a prop umbrella at all times, hoping for an opportunity to stick our couples out in the rain. In the case of Meghan & John on their Park Hyatt Washington DC wedding day, this wasn’t really an option.
We’re talking deluge. Almost exactly when we were going to begin portraits. This smart couple built in extra time for portraits, so we were safe! But the good thing about being rained out is it forces us photogs to think fast! We tried a few lit photos indoors with that extra time, resulting in the photo above. It was all a breeze the rest of the day at the Park Hyatt in DC, which has this feeling of being on the edge of the city. A large patch of green across the street quiets down this pretty hotel venue, and makes for a nice portrait escape. Maybe it’s just that the bride and groom were two delightfully composed participants – it put us at ease! Congrats guys!
