Sometimes on the wedding day, there is so much going on that it’s difficult to get a good amount of personal portraits for the bride and groom. For Shannon and Barrett’s wedding at the Umstead Hotel, a combination of weather and timing impacted the amount of time we had for wedding day portraits. We decided, after the wedding was over, to go back and and do a day after session at the Umstead. Of course, as the day arrived, the weather was looking a bit threatening again. Sigh. After talking we will went forward with it and were seriously rewarded with some gorgeous light and even had a little fun with the rain (with galoshes and umbrellas).
Anyway, for all of those who worry about having enough time on the day or weather infringing on your plans, day after sessions are a great way to get gorgeous wedding photos whether you wanted to spend more time with your guests or the weather/facility would not permit it. I hope you enjoy a few select photos below!
