When an engagement shoot approaches, I’m always keeping an eye on the weather. After all, very few people want to go out and be photographed in the rain. Well, with a 50% chance of rain, Maritel, Eric and I ultimately decided to just go for it. What we found, is that even though a rainy day can be sometimes unpleasant, the reward is well worth it. Since a dark, overcast sky can cause some pretty flat, boring light, this photographer just had to make his own. After that, illuminated droplets of rain, glistening sidewalks, puddles…all of these elements made for an incredibly fun and creative session. At some point we even stumbled upon a gentleman washing his beautiful classic car. Yep. A rainy day is the best time for a car wash, he tried to convince us. Well, it was a great time for an engagement shoot as well. Thanks, Maritel and Eric!
