OK, so for those of you who live around here, it has been pretty stormy this summer.
That can be a bummer under normal circumstances. When you are doing wedding photography, it can be really challenging–but only if you let it. When I first started doing wedding photography, there was a summer where it rained every single weekend. It forced me to get good at finding good light and locations in less than idea situations. It also made me learn to work quickly and efficiently outdoors in a limited amount of time. Recently I got to use those skills at a rainy wedding in Lake George NY. Gary and Therese got married at the lovely Sagamore Resort. It poured buckets on their wedding day! Understanding how to find good light and knowing my camera equipment made getting good wedding photos for them easy and fun!
Before the wedding, I usually get to shoot some detail and preparation images. Below is my favorite of the dress and shoes. The glass door was providing lots of natural light.
Luckily we were able to create a few of the formal wedding photos outdoors before the deluge. One of the best things was that Gary and Therese had planned on seeing each other before the ceremony. It started to cloud over when we got outside. When we were photographing formal wedding portraits on the docks at the Sagamore, the Coordinator was telling me the weather app on her phone gave us five minutes to get indoors and under cover. LOL.
So after we did some basic outdoor photos, we pretty much ran inside to beat the rain and the storm. Living on the edge, always. LOL.
The original plan for an outdoor ceremony was abandoned in favor of staying safe and dry. No problem.
