RAINY WEDDING DAYS
One of the most common questions I get asked is, what happens if it rains on my wedding day? While this isn't always ideal and doesn't match the sunny day you imagine while planning, I want to encourage you that you can still have GORGEOUS photos, even if it's rainy! Here a few quick tips to keep in mind:
1. Overcast skies - perfect lighting, sunlight, especially mid-day, is actually very harsh. Rainy days give that perfect, soft, natural lighting, no matter where you take the photos! This gives you perfect lighting + the ability to use a lot more locations. It also tends to make colors more vibrant. Don't get me wrong, I love golden, sunlit photos, but overcast has it's advantages as well.
2. Let me worry about the photos. On your wedding day, the only thing you should worry about is being the bride!
3. Be willing to go outside! Most of the time when it's raining, it's a lot of light sprinkles and not long, huge, downpours - going outside is still definitely doable! I typically will find areas that have large trees to cover my couple & bridal party, or overhangs on the side of buildings. I also bring along cute, clear umbrellas to a wedding day (enough for an ENTIRE bridal party!) that keep you almost totally dry, even when you're not under anything, and they look adorable! All photos I've ever taken outside in the rain hardly even look like it's raining.
4. Have a rain plan. Especially is you are having an outdoor wedding. This is very important! Be sure to communicate to your vendors what they should do if it rains on your wedding day. That way, if the situation arises, they will already know what do you and you won't have to worry about a thing.
