With a Hurricane barreling our way, I thought today might be the perfect time to talk about a few Wedding Day Hacks for you Photographers out there!
If you’re a bride and would like your own set of hacks, be sure to check out my previous post on this HERE.
This weekend we are almost certain to have a downpour, those in Houston and further south will probably get it even worse. My family that lives in Houston is all headed here actually! Knowing that we will have a Rainy Wedding Day, I have already begun preparing. Rainy wedding days may intimidate you, but I don’t want them to! Rain is good luck for a bride, and remember you will have a perfect, natural diffuser with all those clouds! You can find spots to make beautiful, I promise!
To give you a little bit of courage for any upcoming rainy wedding days, here are 3 of my hacks!
1: Plan on heading to your venue EARLY.
We have a timeline, we know what time we are “supposed” to be there, but what happens when there is bad weather? Traffic gets crazy, or roads aren’t as safe. You need to be able to slow down and not worry that you are going to throw the whole timeline off! Gauge the severity of the storm and how far you are and then add some time to what you think you will need, and then add a bit on top of that! The last thing I ever want is to show up late on a wedding day.
You will want a few just for you and your second shooter and/or assistant to use for walking around, or even covering you and your gear while you shoot!
But you may also want to snag a few of these adorable clear Bubble Umbrellas for portrait time! You won’t regret having them, and your bride will be so excited to see them!
3: Protect your gear.
I LOVE my Think Tank bag. It is so nice to be able to carry so much gear for wedding day, and know that it’s safe! It comes with a waterproof cover so I can rest at ease knowing that my gear is staying dry. It is a bit of an investment, but SO worth it!!
