But what if it rains?! That’s one of the biggest fear every bride and groom communicate about photography before their wedding day.
Poor weather is generally not going to change the plans too much. But I can totally empathise with the disappointment you must feel when you have planned a wedding in the middle of August and rather than the blue sky you had in your mind when you picked your dresses, flowers and outdoor ceremony, you have cold, wind and rain. Full-on UK-style!
Yes, there are things that will need to change on the day with dark clouds but, for the photography at least, I will take care of everything and will already have my ‘Plan B’ ready to roll.
Believe it or not, there are certain photographic downsides to blistering sunshine all day long and many of us photographers love to be challenged with a bit of dodgy weather as it brings out the best creativity in us. Making drama from the rain, creating wonderfully textured skies and shots of hair blowing in the wind are those images that stand out from the crowd and can be totally beautiful; not despite the weather, but because of it. So your outdoor ceremony may not quite work out, but rest assured your photos will be incredible and will tell the genuine story of your day which, as the umbrellas go up, just got a bit more interesting.
I operate well when nature is showing off the goods! Waiting, not knowing, but staying prepared is a skill I’m forcing myself into. So far it’s been working out. This shot was all luck. #californiaexplored#desertvibes#goldenhour —————————
