As I drove north on route 21 from Massillon to Norton, I looked to my left and saw a cloud that was a bit concerning to me. I remember getting to Butterbridge Road and calling Josh.
“Hey, look at your weather app real quick and tell me if there’s rain by Clay’s Park.”
Of course, Josh’s “trusty” weather app said there was nothing and that the skies would be clear for the engagement session I had in less than 30 minutes at Silver Creek Metro Park in Norton. I kept driving north fully prepared to have my full hour with Dana and Joe – with no interruptions.
Jokes on you, Loren.
We were a mere ten minutes into our time together when I heard the rumble of thunder. I like to spend my engagement sessions chatting with my couples, getting to know them, their interests, hear their engagement story. Most sessions, I probably do more talking with my couples than actual picture taking. (Don’t worry future LJ Bride reading this, you still end up with A LOT of photos!!)
Somewhere in the distance, lightning was striking because the rumbles of thunder continued. The skies got darker. The wind picked up. And there was a noticeable drop in temperature. MY trusty weather app said the rain was going to start in 20 minutes. I knew I had to work quickly.
Less talk, Loren. More work.
Dana, Joe, and I wrapped up our time right in front of our vehicles in tall grass/weeds that someone had already trampled down for us. I knew when I took the first photo in the series of pictures that it would be a favorite! And sure enough, Dana and Joe ordered the first photo you’ll see below in a 16×24 canvas!
While it may have rained on our parade, we still were able to take some epic photos at Silver Creek for their engagement photos. And I still managed to learn more about Dana and Joe!
October 12th, please hurry up! I’m looking forward to the chance to put these two back in front of my camera once again!!
