“Where in the world are they taking us?”, I asked Grace as we left the highway and began driving on a narrow and weathered road. As we made our way down the winding lane, we got our first glimpse of the covered bridge Aleisa and Jasmine had chosen to meet us at. The ancient-looking structure stuck out like a sore thumb in the green hills that loomed behind it. It is not a sight you see everyday. The red paint had faded with age, giving the historic wooden structure an ancient look. This wasn’t the typical background we would choose for an engagement session, but WOW! The photos turned out phenomenal.
Earlier in the day, the sky was extremely overcast and cloudy, threatening to pour down rain at any given moment. We got in touch with Aleisa and Jasmine about rescheduling if they wanted to, and their response was priceless. They told us they had umbrellas, and even if it was pouring rain and all of the photos turned out awful, they would at least make some good memories. We knew then that they were our kind of people!
So, it didn’t rain at all. All of the photos were turning out great and Aleisa and Jasmine were glowing. On top of that, we made some great memories!! We met a nice lady named Barbara who gave us a lengthy history lesson about the bridge. At the end, we ended up with several flowers from her beautiful personal garden (Thanks Barbara!).
Aleisa and Jasmine, thank you so much for trusting us to photograph your wedding next year! We had such a good time during your session, and we are thrilled the weather cooperated so well. We can’t wait until we meet again at Billie Creek Village for another historic-looking session on your big day!
Take a look at some of our favorite photos from the session below!
