It's not everyday that you get to see a rainbow. It's even rarer to be able to photograph one during a wedding. Fortunately I was able to do it at Sabrina and Al's wedding up at Sunny Slope Farm in Alton, NH. It was a great, laid-back wedding in a beautiful location. And the photo that you see on the right... the couple was awesome because it was still raining when we took that photo.
The location was great. Sunny Slope Farm has this great, rustic-New England charm from their Inn to the barn itself.
It was a great wedding to photograph. The couple were easy to work with and very outgoing - no fear in any of the photography! And that makes the portrait sessions much easier to organize.
And speaking of the portrait session - the timing couldn't have been better with the setting sun shining a brilliant gold hue on the couple. The light literally made the bride glow. Shortly after the portraits the clouds rolled in and rained briefly.
It helps that during my early college days I was majoring in Environmental Science. It studied weather for a semester and I could tell that the rain was going to be short-lived. I knew that a rainbow was going to form, I just needed to know where. I grabbed my camera and watched. And then I spotted it...
Turns out I didn't have to try all that hard. It was big and it was bright! You can't ask for anything more!
