Deanna + Geoff’s Backyard Rain Storm Wedding | Danica Oliva Photography + Videography


Deanna and Geoff made their all about their favourite people in their lives. From their family property to their family church, there wasn’t one plan made that didn’t include their family and friends. I couldn’t talk about all the magic their day was filled with without mentioning the rain storm that blew through unwarranted. We were in the middle of family photos when my second shooter (shoutout Shay!) tapped me on the shoulder and pointing out some dark clouds in the distance. As a photographer, especially on a wedding day, I keep my cool always. So I simply didn’t mention too much and kept on trucking. Well, those clouds came rolling A LOT faster than we thought and we dashed it into the house. It was so magical, the sound, the downpour, and then the light that came just 30 minutes after. I seriously love these moments on a wedding day, it makes it so much more memorable and fun memories to remember.

Always embrace the rain.
