Bad Weather in the Country

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Nathan & Rebecca.  They chose to get married in a lovely venue in Woodend in the outskirts of Melbourne.  The wedding day went really well, however the weather was fairly cold and raining.  As a photographer I never worry about weather as it is the one thing we cannot change and my job is to be adaptable in all different conditions.  I have learned over the years it is so important to have a plan B, the photo below was taken in the main street of Woodend.  For those of you who have not been to Woodend – don’t drive too quick otherwise you will miss it! :) The clouds make the image so dramatic and the colour of the car adds the contrast needed to balance the image. Bad weather can work to a photographers advantage – so never get stressed about the weather!

It does not matter where you get married or what type of weather you end up getting – the most important thing is to have a good time.  Your photographer should have a good idea what will work in different weather conditions and make sure you have a plan B!
