Shelagh and TJ were so awesome to work with!  They came all the way up from NJ and drove back down the same day…so they should get an award for rallying for their engagement photos!  They wanted to visit Shelburne Farms so we planned on it.  It was actually a rainy, windy day and as I drove to meet them I wondered, ‘how am I going to pull this off?’ I am used to being able to work in light rain (with a huge umbrella strapped to my chest I look like a total geek, but it works) but the weather was looking a bit more daunting than I would have liked and I didn’t want to be stuck inside for their engagement photos.   When I met Shelagh and TJ they were so excited about the photo session that I knew we’d have fun, no matter what!  Luckily, as we started the rain began to lighten up and allowed us to stay outside.  I geeked out with my umbrella for a while and then the rain eventually stopped.  We got lucky!  The clouds were dark, the wind was blowing, the light was misty…making for some dramatic engagement images.  Not to mention the gorgeous backdrop of Shelburne Farms!  Working through less than ideal weather conditions and looking back at what a huge success it was reminds us of how to make the best of any situation.  I know Shelagh and TJ are going to have an unforgettable wedding day and I’m already so excited for it!
