I love it when my couples are up for anything! Wether it be interesting locations, unique activities, OR inclement weather- all of those things help create photos that are unique to you! Danielle, Adam, and I were supposed to meet on a Sunday on Mackworth Island off of Falmouth Maine. I had seen that the weather wasn't looking ideal a few days prior but we decided we'd wait and keep an eye on it. Weather in Maine changes constantly and you almost seems like you can't trust it until the morning of. The day of our session came and things still weren't looking good so we made a plan to meet earlier and try and beat the potential thunder and lightning predicted for later that day. While we didn't get any lighting we did get a steady downpour. I was so happy that these two still wanted to get out even for just a few shots. They had planned for it, looked great, and were more then flexible with the rain. I had my trusty clear umbrella that I always bring and I love the shots we got with it! Rain really adds some romance to a shoot and having to be underneath an umbrella and in constant close proximity of one another makes a couple real cozy real quick! We realized we'd both be in Orono Maine the following weekend for the University of Maine's homecoming. I live there and they would be traveling up for the festivities. I knew the foliage would be at peak and offered to take some shots up there as well. This way they'd get a full engagement session instead of just the 15 minutes we had on Mackworth island. In the end I don't think it could have turned out any better. We got romantic rainy photos on the island and fun bright ones with the gorgeous foliage on the UMaine campus, which is where these two met. Thank you so much Danielle and Adam for being so flexible and willing to brave the elements with me. I cannot wait for your wedding next year at Sugarloaf! Below are a few of my favorites from our two mini sessions together.
