As they walked through the tunnel, the bagpipes played and the wind caught her skirt. Diana glanced at her dad and laughed, happy to see that he was enjoying every moment in his kilt. At the end of the tunnel and up the stairs, Donnie was waiting for her on the patio of the Lonesome Dove and she realized that everything about the day was perfect – they had been blessed with perfect weather, they had found the perfect location, and she had found the perfect partner to share her life with.
The first time we met Diana and Donnie we chatted about almost everything. We talked about so many things that they didn’t need to fill out our Getting to Know You form – we already had all the answers. Their intimate wedding was over 6 months away, but they had put so much thought and planning into the day that we knew it was going to be a fabulous affair. And it was.
We love catching candid moments like this during the reception:
Where are our signature black & white images, you are asking? This is possibly the first wedding we have shot where I only converted a single image into black and white. I admit I was amazed when I finished processing Diana & Donnie’s images and realized that I had left everything in full color. The vibrant combination of Donnie’s red kilt, Diana’s red shoulder-wrap and her gorgeous strawberry blonde hair seemed to take over the day and black & white just didn’t suite it.
As I finished their album design, I found a single image that was perfect in black and white – not because I didn’t want to see the red kilt, but because there is so much going on around Diana & Donnie that the surroundings were distracting. I was being stealthy while Bill took our gear back to the car – I don’t think they even knew I was following them…
