We often hear couples express concern about the weather on their wedding day. “What if it rains?” they worry. “What if it’s too hot or too cold?”. It’s understandable to want everything to be perfect on your big day, but we have a secret to share: we actually love bad weather.

Now, we’re not saying that we hope for a thunderstorm or blizzard on your wedding day. But if Mother Nature throws a curveball, know that we are fully equipped to handle it and turn it into something beautiful.

The Power of Lighting: How We Control the Scene to Create Stunning Images

One of the great things about being photographers is that we have the ability to control the scene through our own lighting. This gives us the flexibility and creativity to add interest, drama, and mood to our images. We can even make it look like night in the middle of the day. So whether it’s raining, snowing, or shining, we can create stunning photographs that capture the essence of your love.

The Beauty of Bad Weather: How Rain, Snow, and Other Elements Add Drama to Your Photos

In fact, some of our favourite images have been taken during crazy rainstorms. The rain adds an element of drama and romance to the photos, and it can be a lot of fun to embrace the elements and get a little bit wet. And if it’s too cold or hot to be outside, we can always find a cozy indoor location to shoot. It is also good to have a backup location that is covered.
