Several weeks prior to Megan & Andrew’s big day, Megan and I met for dinner to discuss her wedding day timeline – a little meeting I like to call the pre-wedding consultation! Among the many things we talked about, one was her fear of it raining all throughout her wedding day. I pish-poshed, saying it hardly ever rained all day in October. Little did I know I would be eating my words on her wedding day and for many days after!
Our area has had more continuous rain in the past week than it did this past spring – which has all but ruined most of our area photographers’ fall portrait session schedule! We only have about 3 weeks of beautiful colors in the fall and an entire week was spent emailing and texting clients minutes before their sessions saying whoops, it’s still raining, let’s look at another day!
Of course, you can’t reschedule a wedding so we just had to take what we could get! That meant a disappointing amount of bride & groom portraits since it didn’t stop raining until well after the sun set. Normally, we would just schedule a Rain Check session for a day sometime after the wedding for their portraits but Megan & Andrew set off for their next adventure the very next day… they moved to Northern California! The silver-lining of Megan & Andrew’s rainy wedding day? According to Hindu religion (which they are not of, but still!), rain on your wedding day is incredible good luck! AND that means a short trip to California for a visit and a session for me a Neil!
