I had the BEST time photographing Samantha and Clinton after they were sealed in the Raleigh Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints over the weekend. I have photographed other weddings where it rained here and there, but on Samantha and Clinton’s day, it seemed like it POURED the whole time I was with them! Normally this would make things a little more difficult, but Clinton and Samantha were so HAPPY. They knew that what was most important was their sealing to one another, and subsequently, the weather was not an issue. Come what may and love it. I had two awesome umbrella holders (Thank you Chloe and Rachel!) and thanks to their help, and our umbrellas of course, we were able to snap away in the rain! Samantha and Clinton were very easy to photograph…they were incredibly adorable and like I said before, so happy, it was contagious. As I left them that afternoon I felt especially grateful to be able to do what I do. I love meeting and photographing couples and being able to capture their first moments together as husband and wife, on the sacred grounds of the Temple. I seriously could not get the images on my computer fast enough. I still have a lot more to go through, but I wanted to share a small preview with them and their families.
Rain or shine, it was an incredible day. Congratulations on your sealing, Mr. and Mrs. O’Dell! You guys were awesome!
