Tab and DD: Married December 8th, 2013

Tab and DD are a wonderful couple from Savannah, Georgia who recently called on me to photograph their wedding.  As veterinarians, they both share a love for animals.  I've talked about shooting a snow wedding for years (and I must admit I actually want one myself), but until Tab and DD I'd never gotten to.  The wedding, unfortunately, was cut very short due to the snow and ice storm which was just beginning that morning.  This also meant that, due to the inclement travel conditions, many guests were not able to join, although thanks to technology, many still joined in on Skype.

Although the weather wasn't so cooperative for friends and family to travel in, it was still very pretty for pictures.  Tab and DD's wedding was very special and unique to the DC area, since the DMV unpredictably has infrequent snowstorms.  I'm so looking forward to my next snowy wedding.


And here's a quick little outtake:  While we were shooting outside in the snow, we hadn't been in this spot even one minute, and a plow drove up the sidewalk and ruined the shot and my flat white background...


Between the cold and an impatient plow driver idling a mere couple feet behind me, we only spent a few more minutes taking pictures in the snow, as there was really no other ideal location featuring snow.  Photography is all about on-the-fly flexibility!
