Horrible weather at the wedding….Crap
So I shot a wedding this week…and with the weather trend in Alberta this winter I should have known we would get bad weather. An hour before we were supposed to start the formals, it started to cloud over and just as the bride pulled up there were flakes the size of freakin’ frisbee’s hitting the ground. We waited it out a bit, but decided to go for it. To my surprise and total relief I had an awesome group to work with and everyone was more than willing to go ahead with the outdoor shots. God blessed us, because within a 20 mins into shooting the snow stopped.
Anyway, the point of this was that although many people believe that overcast days are great for shooting outdoors, I almost disagree. I mean I know you get less squinting and glare and yatta yatta yatta, but I would rather pack around a diffuser and still have the effects of a warm sun and the backgound of a blue sky. But thats just me. I found it really hard to get creative is suck a “buzz-kill” atmosphere of grey sky and cold air.
Anyone have suggestions incase this happens again and the Gods are not on my side that day?
This is one of my favorite shots from the afternoon. The car is very symbolic…so its a pretty special shot for the bride too.
