So snow certainly isn’t unheard of in late April, but when the Sierra is in a prolonged drought, you certainly don’t expect a storm to roll in and dump a foot of new snow, even in the mountains. Fortunately it came through the day before the wedding and they were able to clear the deck so Meghan and Kenan’s outdoor wedding could go off as planned. It did change the portrait plans a bit since no one was really prepared to go trekking through the new snow, so I had the unique challenge to use little pockets of light inside the lodge for the couple’s portrait session. The results are some images that I really love, and are very different than much of what you’ll see from me elsewhere. Aside from having a ridiculously photogenic and expressive couple, there was SO much love in this group. Kenan’s family were from France, spoke little english, and my high school French joined my trigonometry talents long, long ago in the dustbin of forgotten things. That language barrier meant nothing in the end, love is love, and joy is joy, and it translates beautifully. Enjoy.
