The rain.
It was the only thing on everyone’s mind on Lucinda & Buckley’s wedding day.
But the bride and groom had a back-up plan for everything.
It was the wedding day they’ve always wanted and no rain was going to ruin that.
Buckley’s couldn’t stop smiling.
I couldn’t get a serious face out of him, no matter how hard I tried.
It was one of those warm, fuzzy, memorable days.

This wedding is also featured on Polka Dot Bride.

Beautiful photos! Love the ones on the bridge, especially with him holding the umbrella over her. How sweet.

Such beauty! Her dress, the gentle rain (especially the portrait with the needles full of drops), the sweet glances, the ambient glow. Wonderful coverage of a lovely wedding!

You can’t beat a live band! Great set of photos showing the fun of the day despite the weather.

nice, really nice…I love your post processing.

Wow! These are awesome Harvard. I love the whole day. Love the portraits in amongst the trees!

I love the details! Those little flags are so cool. Amazing portrait session in the woods!

Your tones and processing here are amazing!


hwang, congratulations on the write up. You deserve it. The rain really worked wonders on all the tree limbs to. Maybe it is lucky if it rains on your wedding day.

Nice work, Harvard! It seems the rain didn’t dampen their spirits and hopefully not your gear!

I am in love with her dress!!

Rain on wedding day = blessing. I love it that Lucinda and Andrew chose to get out in the rain for portraits. They look like an amazing couple. Beautiful coverage of their wedding!

Really stunning work!! I love the simplicity in so many of your frames. Fantastic.

Awesome coverage!! I love this couple’s cool style (esp the bride’s dress) and the shots of them after the wedding are so cute under the umbrella.
