There seems to be a theme in our engagement photos and weddings so far this summer season: rain. Not exactly what you might expect to be up against as a photographer in a notoriously dry state.
However, part of being a photographer is thinking on your feet and making do with what you’ve got. No amount of reverse-psychology rain dancing will make the weather change its mind (though don’t think I haven’t considered giving it a shot!). So, when the rain started to fall for Brice and Jamie’s Chautauqua wedding a few weekends ago — forcing them to move their ceremony inside — we all just went with it. Their ceremony was still beautiful, their excitement absolutely palpable, and no amount of rain could dampen their elation to be promising a lifetime to one another. They were exactly the kind of clients you’d want in that situation. Therefore, when the rain finally let up and we were able to shoot their portraits outside, it was just icing on the cake.
Here is just one shot of the resulting sunshine. More coming! –anya
