Embrace it.... Wedding And Engagement Photos in the Rain - Farmington Club - Inn at Woodstock and Ct. locations


Living in New England, and really the country as a whole, can hold such beautiful days. The sun can ride up in the morning with a pleasant fog and set in the evening lighting up the sky with such beautiful colours. All of which can make for some spectacular images! 




But here's the thing. You don't need those "beautiful" days to make images rock! Really, even rainy days can be so beautiful!!!! But there's a key to it all.........




And that key is as simple as embracing it! Embrace the rain, the food that feeds so much of everything on this planet. Embrace the darker sky, the reflections that can be thrown from the ground and everything else that comes with it. 




Sure, maybe you weren't planning on it, or hoping for it. But if you simply embrace it. The beauty is endless!




Where does this all come from, well I've done many shoots in the rain. And here in New England, we've also had our share lately. Much like other parts of the country. And this past weekend, one of the weddings I was invited into, well, it rained on them. Not hard, but hard enough to just bring on a cringe. But no cringe was had. (second image in this post)... Instead, the bride embraced it. Sure, maybe she was prepared because it also rained when we took on their engagement session. But she embraced it enough that she had purchased umbrellas for the bridal party and told them as well to simple "embrace it".....




So what I'm getting at is really quite simple. When something is simply out of your control. All you can do is embrace it. Take what's being thrown at you and make the best of it. And when all is said and done.....





If you embraced it, and did your best, there's nothing anyone can say about the outcome........
