Well ... I'm a teensy bit panicked, I have to admit. I'm photographing a wedding this Saturday and am nervous not because of any reason other than the weather. The forecast for Saturday is rain ... and possibly snow *ugh*. And some lovely wind too. How great.
I have literally spent hours going through various sites, once also with the clients as they showed me the type of photos they would like: edgy, modern, fun. Which is all wonderful - except all of the decided locations are open air, and not under cover. Obviously, a bride is not going to want to stand in the rain - although she has purchased CUTE polka-dotted umbrellas for her and her girls ... but there's also the concern about my equipment in the rain. I can't hold an umbrella, or allow it to obstruct light ... *ugh*. Obviously, someone could help hold something over me - but stilllll.
So today I drove around, for hours, with my boys - university campuses, local parks and greenhouses, other church grounds, schools ... anywhere that had cover. But I am afraid that due to the weather, I will only be able to capture one STYLE of photo. Everything is overtly "urban" ... obviously, there won't be the sunlight streaming through the wheat as they walk hand in hand ... *sigh*.
SO, I have a list - and am satisfied that if the weather doesn't co-operate, I can still do a really great job and provide photos that my clients will fall in love with.
But I wonder if you would happen to have any ideas?
Would love to have a plan a, b, c, d ... and even e, I think.
