Rain or Shine the show will go on! Not only will your wedding go on but it will be FANTASTIC and great photos can be taken whether it rains, shines or hails. So no matter what the day looks like: relax and enjoy it! During the middle of July - peak wedding season - sometimes you can be hoping for a bright and sunny day for your wedding but I just wanted to let all the brides out there know that it's completely OK if it rains on your wedding day. Believe it or not my perfect dream wedding to photograph includes a cloudy day! Clouds help diffuse the sun making the light fall all around you just perfectly without harsh shadows. Also, you won't have to worry about squinting your eyes into the sun. I know it might be hard to see those clouds and not think gloom, but remember it's ALL about you and your love for the one you're marrying. Seriously NOTHING else matters except your love when it comes down to it, right?!
A great example is the wedding of Lydia and Clayton. It actually hailed a few hours before their wedding! Yes. Hail. What did we do? Bring the bride underneath an overhang and get some awesome photos, eventually it stopped hailing and we were able to venture further out and the grey skies were just stunning with a wedding dress in front of it! Lydia and Clayton didn't let a thing stop them on their day. :)
Holy Smokes it was dark!
Those clouds made for AMAZING evenly lit shots!
Maybe it's not raining but it's 90 degrees and bright as heck outside?! Trust your photographer - they will find the right light. It is our job to find 'the light.'
Or will your wedding be 30 degrees and freezing?! Below: winter sun set
Our tip: just RELAX. Know that whether it's raining or sunny on your wedding day it's going to ROCK and you will end up with some creative one of a kind photos for you to remember your special day.
