We had planned this shoot weeks in advance. But in the days leading up, Justine and I were both checking the weather and noticed that it was due to rain. So we made the decision to change locations to a place that would offer cover from the rain when needed, as well as pavement so we didn't squish into the mud.
Now mind you that I usually don't mind tromping through mud or getting wet in the rain. But when you've got a future bride with her makeup and hair done, a hot new pair of boots, plus white jeans, sometimes you just gotta make the decision to play things safe.
We were so happy with our decision. First, it poured all morning and into the afternoon. And secondly, the location we chose was amazing. Fort Point at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is such a neat place to visit. And by the time we got into our shoot the rain had taken a break and we were able to get out by the Bay and get some great shots in front of the water.
A special bonus during our shoot: a rainbow! That has to be a good omen for these two, right?!
And Justine and Mitch are just not a perfect pair, they are a fun family. Their two boys came along for some shots that kept the day light.
Can you tell these guys are Raiders fans?
We're looking forward to Justine and Mitch's wedding next spring!
