Claire & Ryan

I know I’ve said this before but, I seriously have THE best couples.  Laid back, fun, caring, down to earth, just flat out amazing people. I’m not sure why the choose me but saying I’m thankful and honored is an understatement. Claire and Ryan are one of those couples.  Rain threats were happening all week. It was going to happen no matter what. We all knew it and we all dealt with it.  Claire made the call to have her wedding indoors… it was the right call… not the one she wanted but, it was right.  Ryan simply stated he would do whatever Claire decided. No matter what, they were saying ‘I do’ – rain or shine – in front of everyone they love.  Well, the sun decided to come out to play for a little bit and we got to go outside and enjoy it after the ceremony.  Another big thunderstorm came through JUST as we finished their portraits… God really had that timing just right!  The guests that came to celebrate know what great people Claire and Ryan are. You could just feel it in the room. They had an amazing reception… complete with toasts that had everyone rolling with laughter and a serious dance party. Rain and all, it really was the best way to start my wedding season. Enjoy some of my favorites below! Huge thank you to Megan of Megan Lorraine Photography for being an amazing second shooter!

When you run into the groom at lunch 4 days after his wedding and he specifically asks about this photo… It must make the blog post! haha
