This was my second time photographing at Hawksbill Crag. I arrived and started hiking in. About 3 minutes into the hike, it started sprinkling. My immediate thought was no big deal. I have a weatherproof camera and plastic bags to cover my bag and camera if it really starts pouring. I caught up to the wedding party after 10 or so minutes and we hiked the rest of the way together. They actually carried their wedding clothes in bags and had a hiking backpack with their changing tent in it as well. This was the smallest most intimate wedding I have ever been a part of. It was the wedding that made me realize THIS is the wedding I want to capture. Small, intimate, and stunning weddings. Non traditional weddings are my favorite. Whether its a backyard, a barn, or a cliff! I have no problem with a traditional church wedding but there's something special about capturing a special moment in a special place. Hawksbill Crag and myself go way back (check my previous blog for details.) I told myself I’d never do anything with my camera at Hawksbill again but this time changed my mind. I would LOVE to do more weddings here. It is perfect. A few of my favorite things from this wedding are:
The dress! I wish I would've asked who made it because it is seriously the most beautiful dress I've ever been able to photograph. It was stunning.
The little vow books the couple used. They were so perfect. Super neat idea if this is your aesthetic.
The views! If you haven’t been to Hawksbill Crag / Whitaker's Point. Even if you aren’t getting married here. GO HERE. It's amazing. But be careful. There has been a death recently and it can be dangerous if you do dangerous things. So be careful.
The fact that is was tiny! It was the officiator, the bride and groom, the bride's brother and parents. That's it. And it was so special. I almost teared up. The fact that it was just barely sprinkling and almost sunset.
If this is the kind of wedding you want to have. Contact me because we probably have a lot in common and i would LOVE to be a part of your day.
