It doesn’t happen very often in “sunny” Southern California, but this was my first rainy day wedding in about 10 years! The funny thing is that it was outrageously hot when we did their engagement shoot.
Kirk and Angelina were all smiles, despite the gloomy day forecast. They are in love and getting married, what more do you need in life?! We made the best of breaks in the clouds, huddled under palm trees for pictures, and happily made adjustments when the wedding ceremony and reception were moved indoors.
I did learn two huge lessons on this special day. Always have an assistant to hold your umbrella and help handle and protect your gear on rainy days, and spring for the clear umbrellas! Not only are they more pleasing to look at, they will allow what little bit of light is available to shine through.
