What could be more lovely than a rainy spring day at the Walker’s Point Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co? Quite frankly, not much. Savanah and Tyler’s entire wedding day was located in the heart of Milwaukee’s most exciting urban neighborhood of Walker’s Point. Rainy wedding days are grossly underrated, and while the percentage of rain this day was only 20% we happened to have the skies open upon us just after we started taking portraits. The fresh rain, the spring blossoms, and this incredibly fun couple made for some of my most favorite non-traditional wedding portraits.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been over 6 weeks since I photographed the wedding of these high school sweethearts. The day was overcast and moody, but nothing could dampen the spirit of their wedding day. In fact, many people don’t know this, but cloudy days often make for the most beautiful wedding portraits. The light is soft and diffused and there is not a harsh shadow to be found anywhere. Of course, beautiful portraits are just a given with this babealicious (yup, I said it!) twosome. You can see that Ted and Amanda’s love for each other and their family is insurmountable, one of my favorite photos is the one of Amanda’s dad walking her down the aisle, it gets to me – Every. Single. Time. Now, this is a bride who has an eye for details – not even one was left to chance. I could have spent hours alone with her floral arrangements, photographing every single bud and vase. Honest. (Impressions by Esther Fleming is a goddess of the floral kind.) Alright! Enough gushing…take a look and see for yourself!
