We all have expectations, yes? We expect people to drive safely on the freeway, we expect our Starbucks to be hot (but not too hot) and we expect to have glorious views of Mount Shasta when get married in Mt. Shasta City. You have to understand that the Carr and Hirz fires were burning out of control to the south and the air was thick with smoke. Thinking I could play the ignorance card, I didn’t want to even check the AQI. Instinctively I knew it wasn’t healthy to breathe, so why bother?
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at change.”
Crystal and I arrived early in the morning and did our traditional pre-wedding scouting. One thing was abundantly clear. The dreaded smoke was actually our biggest asset. It created this amazing quality of light that I’ve never seen before and will likely never see again. It was the change of perspective I needed and we were off to the races.
Shelby and Lyle were our friends and it’s always a huge blessing to shoot a friend’s wedding. They were amazing, their wedding was beautiful and pretty much everything was perfect. Enjoy!
