Rainy Wedding Day Photos

By, December 29, 2017

Although we can’t control the weather, we have learned to treat everything like an opportunity. Even when the forecast shifts in an unexpected direction, we choose to seize the day, whatever it may bring. If it does rain while we are photographing, we will take it and make sweet batch of lemonade :)

Especially on the wedding day, there’s something thrilling about running headfirst into the rain, and capturing the beauty of nature in unexpected ways. Once you see the potential a rainy day holds, you just might find yourself hoping for raindrops!

Kristin and Ryan possess a stunning image that few other couples have. This photograph was taken in Colorado at 5,500 elevation. Being that both our camera Kristin and Ryan's umbrella were both metal, it wasn't our brightest idea. But since we all survived, it sure made for an amazing picture. We photographed 100 frames in about 20 seconds to precisely capture this bolt of lightning.

Yang and Kaisu had shifting weather patterns on their big day, and took every photo op in stride. This resulted in a breathtaking collection of photos, like this candid shot. The beautiful, floral framing alone would have made a nice image, but the rain falling in the background really kicked it up a few notches :)

Majestic Mountain Kiss | Lookout Mountain Preserve, CO

By, April 22, 2016

Kristin and Ryan were married at the historic Boettcher Mansion in Golden, Colorado. The wedding featured a gorgeous onsite chapel, an outdoor banquet table, live music, and a mouthwatering dessert station. It was a beautiful event at an extraordinary Colorado wedding venue.

As photographers, we were swept away by the site’s distinctive sandstone formations, abundant forests, and dramatic blue skies. To make the most of our surroundings, we captured a first kiss photo at the nature reserve nearby. As you’ll see below, it was “naturally” amazing.

Bring it on, El Niño!

By, January 26, 2016

If you’ve been anywhere near San Diego these last few weeks, chances are you’ve felt the wrath El Niño has had on our sunny shores. But a little rain never stopped us before :) By booking talented photographers who know their craft, and how to handle the elements, you’ll see how rain can easily be turned into a dynamic and creative photo opportunity.

Here are a few fun ways to embrace the rain, and to show the weather who is boss.

1. Jump Into It

We add drama and emotion to your photos by taking control of the weather, and by using light in creative ways. As the clouds draw in, and the sprinkles come down, we’re ready use the rain to your advantage.

2. Reflections

Another innovative way to add edge to your wedding memories is to transform an ordinary puddle into a sea of reflection. This technique adds a cool, modern twist to your images.

3. Rainy Day Props

When facing stormy weather, don’t forget to include some fun! Rainy day props such as umbrellas or rainbows introduce a splash of color and youthful energy into your images.

4. Capture the Clouds

When skies turn gray, and clouds begin to roll in, don’t forget to look up! The muted blues of the sky add drama and intensity to the scene, which turns the landscape from dull to epic.

A true classic (above). During a lightning storm, we photographed a couple hanging on to a metal umbrella, while holding a metal camera at 5,500 feet elevation. Was this the smartest idea? Probably not… But if it was going to be the last photo we ever took, we made sure to make it amazing! No, this isn’t a Photoshopped lighting bolt, as many often think ;)
