Just like the title says. Right after their first look the skies opened up--not a common occurrence here in Colorado. They elected to go on with the show and soaked all their guests (and us, haha) . Shooting in the rain was actually kinda fun and a bit challenging. C & C is of course welcome and you can see the rest of them on the blog if you're so inclined. Thanks for looking!

love it dude! glad they did it outside for sure.
I can find no real faults in these except that they perhaps are a little safe. don't be afraid to try new things and take some changes with shots.

Thanks Doug! Our options were pretty limited due to weather and location of the venue. I agree, though, next time I'll find ways to push it more.

Thanks Jaime! They seemed to like that shot as well as ones with his head intact

Stormy weddings... I love 'em- not just the thrill of seeing Unca Bob cringe at getting wet, but how they make all the guests draw closer. These 2 make me wish I had been in your shoes that day.

The handkerchief over the head makes everyone look like amish women.

One image of smiling happy people at the end of the set would help
Good job.

Love #7 with his serenity and her tense exhilaration.

Thanks everyone, I appreciate the comments and feedback. BTW my gear is just fine. Lens hoods helped keep rain drops off the front elements and weather sealing did its job

The venue handed out towels to everyone which was pretty funny. Here's a behind the scenes shot of Carmela (with towel draped over the flash FTW, haha):

It was nice the venue did that, but it feel that contingency planning is always good when it comes to high-important events such as wedding =/

Love how 'real' the pictures are

Absolutely great! What a memorable day-I bet they look at their album with big smiles, everytime.

I like how they opted to keep it outside since they were under a gazebo. Poor guests. At least if they were in the rain too it would be fair.

Haha this looks great! That's some serious rain.

1 and 3 are great getting ready shots. Nice use of light and composition.

4. Is a cool idea, although I wish that the place was a bit more scenic and that you caught the frame just a moment earlier where the bride was a bit more turned towards us.

5 and 6 are both good ideas, but I don't think they're that well executed. The couple looks a bit awkward in 5, and the composition looks a bit loose/sloppy in 6. I think maybe a slightly tighter lens would've helped here.

7 is freaking stellar.

14 is an awesome moment.

15 I'm not sure what I'm supposed to be looking at, it needs a point of focus.

Good work!
