Tonya & John – Post-Hurricane Portraits

Here are some post-hurricane portraits with Tonya & John at the Norfolk Botanical Garden. Sometimes Mother Nature has a different opinion about how the weather should look on your wedding. Here’s a glimpse at how we solved some of those Hurricane Sandy hiccups.
Tonya and John selected the Norfolk Botanical Garden for their outdoor wedding because of its natural beauty. But with the earlier than expected arrival of hurricane-force winds and rain, all outdoor plans — including the outdoor formals they’d been imagining for months — were moved inside to keep everyone safe and dry.

Boo! πŸ™

Fortunately, once the hurricane had moved on, I was able to work with Abby and Carlyn at the Botanical Garden to bring Tonya and John back out and create the beautiful, natural wedding photos they had anticipated all along.

Thanks so much to Tonya and John for their enthusiasm, patience, and persistence throughout a tough weather-related situation. And thanks to Abby and Carlyn at the Botanical Garden for helping me take care of a wonderful couple.
