Jill and Jason – Wild Basin Lodge Wedding Photographer

They say it’s lucky if it rains a little on your wedding day – well I hope Jill and Jason have been buying lottery tickets then because they’ve got some serious luck coming their way.   Actually Jill blames me for the rain – see I told her how a bit of rain really makes the greens pop in photos and she’d been hoping for a little rain.  🙂  It’s that definition of little we need to work on.

Still with umbrellas from Wild Basin Lodge for the guests and the fact that both myself and my associate Dain run pro camera gear that is fully weather proof not a beat was missed.    Heck after the ceremony it even cleared up enough for some amazing portraits before running (literally) back inside.

Jill and Jason – thanks so much for the honor of letting us spend the day with you.

    That is pretty awesome! What did you do to make it “more” weatherproof? Did you guys have umbrella hats for yourself? Or rain coats? Impressive work. =)

    Mark, Thank you so much for capturing our fairy tail in the rain. The pictures look great! I never thought I’d say this, but I’m so happy it rained on our wedding day!
    Thanks again for the memories,
    Jill McCarthy

    We should have been so lucky to have umbrella hats or raincoats. Fortunately most Nikon equipment is fairly weather resistant so Dain was in good shape. For my Canon gear the 1DmkIV can survive a lot worse than most Colorado rain storms can offer, it was a little steep for the 5DmkII so my wide camera was the Canon EOS 3, film body from the late ’90s – fully weather sealed and the best autofocus system canon made up until the 1DmkIV came out (blows away my 5D mkII).

    As for me and Dain – well we where soaked all the way through pretty much.
