Don't let the Atlanta rain put a damper on your wedding!

Well it has been a record number of days of rain in the Atlanta area. I think I heard that in July we had as much rain as we did all of last year. I don't have to tell you if you live in Atlanta we have had a lot of rain!! Just check out the NOAA Rain fall score card.  

I know that sometimes you can be very discouraged about things that are out of your control on your wedding day such as rain.  Let me tell you that don't let a little rain put a damper on your wedding day.  The thing about booking at a good venue you are hiring people that are experienced in dealing with rain and other things.  I am the photographer that is going to make lemonade out of lemons!  I am going to go to the 10th degree to help the bridal party and put people at ease.  Remember in some cultures rain is a sign of good luck!

I also see it as an creative opportunity for my photography.  Recently was at a wedding that the rain came and thought what could I do to get the most creative wedding photos.  In the photo I have included in the post was that I said lets use the flash umbrella as a prop and let the rain work for us.  In this photo I was looking for good sources of light.  I picked this area centered the couple in the light then got my assistant to go behind the couple and use my remote flash to back light the couple under the umbrella.  This is  one of my favorite photos with the reflective light and flash.  But the most important thing is that the couple is having fun and did not let the rain stop them from having the best day of their lives!

Thank you so much for visiting! Please feel free to call me at
and I will be happy to help you in any way that I can.
