The first time I met Ashley was when she came running up to her ceremony under an umbrella in the pouring rain. It made for great shots right away- and I knew I would have a great time shooting Ashley & Joe’s wedding. With a simple ceremony at the Sunset Pavillion in Cape May, listening to the thunder and rain while they spoke their vows made for a romantic feel. As soon as they finished their kiss, the rain stopped and the skies opened up a tad- making it possible for portraits on the beach with a beautiful stormy sky as the background. Ashley & Joe really knew how to have fun and gave me wonderful ideas to work with. When the portraits were over, it started raining again. I couldn’t have asked for more perfect timing, and though I am sure Ashley & Joe would have preferred to have sunny skies, I have to admit I was very ecstatic for the stormy weather.
