I’m a photographer based in Houston, TX that specializes in sophisticated wedding and high school senior photography.
One of the most frequently asked questions that I receive during wedding season is “Soooo, what do you do if it RAINS?!”. We all know that here in Houston the weather forecast can change from one minute to the next, so I always have a rainy day back up plan.
Before I tell you how I handle rain on a wedding day, let me give you some background information. You have probably heard that rain on your wedding day is good luck, right? But do you know the reason behind it? Well, I wondered, so I did a little research.
I want to reassure you that, even if it rains, you will still have beautiful portraits and BRIGHT colors in your images! Overcast skies mean vibrant colors! I know that rain isn’t ideal, and no bride would wish for rain on their big day, but if it happens, it happens….. and it’s going to be JUST fine!! Some of our best weddings have been on rainy wedding days!
Here are a few things to remember:
Unfortunately, we can’t control the weather but we can control our emotions, so whatever you do, don’t let the rain spoil your day. I promise, we will make the best of it and I will capture beautiful images of you as husband and wife.
