jessica and lance

Such a joyness to photograph Jessica & Lance recently in Maleny.. Clients regularly ask us “What happens if it rains on our wedding day?”.. I normally respond.. “Well.. i’ve seen rain before, & it usually makes things wet, but you can still get married :)  Photographically, your images will vary if you compare dry & rainy days, but the weather won’t change the way you feel towards each other, & that connection is a HUGE part of what we capture on your wedding day.. If you’re standing in the rain or under sunny skies, you’ll still be in love”..

It rained on Jess & Lance’s wedding day.. but not all day.. Jess had to lift her dress a little higher while walking around outdoors, our umbrellas got a little bit of use, & there was the occasional ‘dash for cash’ to get under cover, but their day was beautiful.. it really was.. Jessica & Lance made it so.

Other players that made their day beautiful… Maleny Manor, Mondo Floral Designs, & Polkadot Bride.. Jessica & Lance’s wedding was also featured recently by Polkadot Bride – check the feature here and here.  For the record, Jessica thanked lots of people during her speech (as one does), but she also thanked – and I quote – “Thank you to Polkadot Bride blog.. I have totally lived on that site for the last 6 months (insert background comments & cheers of confirmation from bridesmaids),  getting ideas & inspiration for today.. and it all has come together perfectly!”.. and it certainly did.
