Weddings are considered “uncontrolled events.” What that means is you cannot be in total control.
As a photographer, I am not in control of the weather in particular. Over the years, I have learned to not only accept this but to embrace it. While I always go into an event with a general plan, the weather can sometimes throw a monkey wrench into the plan. If the weather stinks, I may not be able to get outside with the couple for some planned shots in a cool location. That is when I know I need to get creative and work with what I have indoors. I used to sometimes think this was tragic. Now I view it as an opportunity.
As you can see, you don’t need to be outdoors in a park during the Golden Hour to create interesting and beautiful wedding photos. Your photographer does need to understand lighting and posing, that’s all.
