Anyone who has frequented weddings, maybe not as much as I have, has more than likely heard the old adage about rain being good luck for a wedding. I can’t say whether or not the weather can predict the course of a marriage, but after 20 years of photographing weddings, I have come to the conclusion that it is good luck for photography. Now anyone who has read my blog may be shocked by this new about-face I have made when it comes to soggy, New England weather. As I have said in the past, the weather is one of those annoying little things that the control-obsessed photographer cannot control. I realized I needed to come up with a strategy to make the couple comfortable and confident about their wedding photography even when their wedding day is a washout. The result is a wealth of ideas that can only be realized on days like the one Joe and Courtney were married. There is no better place to host an event than the Seaport Hotel in Boston. It is as amazing inside as it is outside. It was so nice to have the whole day in one location. We did some getting-ready shots of them separately in their hotel rooms. The first look and ceremony place in the atrium. It had such great light and architecture to work with. Not many brides would be willing to go out in the rain with their wedding dress. I am so glad Courtney did. It made for some fun photography. The rest of the evening was filled with fun and laughter. It was the perfect combination of interesting portraits and situational photography.
