Melissa and John | Wedding from the Visalia Holiday Inn | Visalia, CA

For Melissa and John’s wedding I once again had the chance to work with the fabulous Dawnelle of The Divine Event and once again she did not disappoint with the decor.  Melissa’s ideas were executed flawlessly!  Working in new venues is an especially exciting thing for me, particularly hotels where there typically aren’t a lot of “obvious” places to go shoot portraits – it takes a lot more creativity and tricks to make it all work.  I loved the skeptical looks from Melissa that preceded looks of joy once I showed her the results of the back of the camera.  So if your photographer has you posed in a construction area, or at the edge of a crowded parking lot, trust them, they know what they’re doing…probably…at least I do. 🙂
