Post-Wedding Photography – Lori and Nick
I’m sure I have a few blog stalkers out there who are right now thinking, “Who the hell are Lori and Nick? Sarah didn’t shoot their wedding!” And you’re right, Blog Stalkers, I didn’t shoot this handsome pairs wedding. But I have to say, I am actually thrilled that I didn’t. Because if I had we wouldn’t have gotten together on a rainy Tuesday at the end of December to make some images I am so excited about. Lori and Nick got married in November in Hawaii, and even though they LOVED their pictures, they didn’t get a ton of photography time so they didn’t get as many pictures as they wanted. So, a few days before Christmas (in the middle of my huge move!) I got a phone call from Lori’s delightful mother, Debby, asking if I would do a trash the dress session for them. I am SO glad I said yes! We started off at one of my favorite places on the planet, The Citizen Hotel, where Lori and her mom had stayed the night before for a girls night. Debby had been vital to putting their Hawaiian wedding together, so she missed helping Lori get ready. This was her opportunity to help her baby girl into her wedding dress. It was such a delight to have Debby with us! She’s the best! And let me just say, Lori ROCKED her dress!
Aren’t Lori and Nick so freaking cute together? I love them! Nick was such a sport too! He carried umbrellas, and cleaned off umbrellas when that became a necessity in a dirty alley as well. Thanks Nick! We headed out from the Citizen to grab some shots around downtown in the drizzle. It was super fun!
Then we all jumped in my car and ran over to one of my favorite spots under the freeway… only to discover PEOPLE ACTUALLY PARK THERE! None the less, Lori and Nick rocked out some shots in the now pouring rain. And when I looked at Lori and said, “Please lay down over here by this drainage grate.” The girl didn’t even blink an eye! You have my heart forever Lori – FOREVER!
Lori and Nick thank you SO much for this amazing shoot! I loved being a part of it! You two are fabulous, and I feel so grateful to know you. And thanks to Debby for walking around in the rain with us, carrying all our props and even holding my flashes for me! You are fantastic! And also a special thanks to my most favorite hair and makeup team, Leilani and Renee! You two knocked it out of the park… like always!

Wow, this session is really amazing. You did a great job, and how fun to work with such a willing bride & groom!
