I would like to start out by giving a public announcement: one should never underestimate the craziness of the weather in the Pacific Northwest. Nope, that would be a big mistake. See, on this gorgeous day in May, the sky was clear and the sun was shining everywhere around Seattle. There was not one hint of rain on the freeway, nor was my windshield met with a single drop of water as I wind through the curves that would take me to Rattle Snake Lake for a much anticipated stylized shoot with over a dozen other photographers, models, stylists and various other wedding vendors. Then, as I got to the parking lot, the rain happened. It was not a mist, not even the normal light rain that we so often get in this corner of the country. Nope, this was what could only be described as a down pour.
Our attempt to wait it out was futile as the rain gave no hint of letting up. Thankfully, Rebecca, our awesome group leader who put the whole shoot together, wasn’t about to let some rain ruin our day. So, with some fast thinking and teamwork, we packed up all the props, drove an hour back the way we came and set up at Lincoln Park in West Seattle. And what a fantastic call that was for the location couldn’t have been more perfect or more ethereal.
Here is Part I of Ethereal Woodland Elopement, a stylized shoot:
