Colorado has over 300 sunny days a year, so rainy days are pretty rare. Days that are rainy from morning to night are even more rare. June 12th, 2010 was one of those rare days.
Although rain is never a Bride’s ideal situation, when it happens, the keys are to embrace it and have a back-up location (if you had planned for an outdoor venue). For the wedding I shot on June 12th, the Bride did both of these things.
I really think that rainy days make for vivid memories and unique situations that can be fun to document, resulting in images that will standout here in the centennial state. For photographers, rainy days present their challenges; but if you keep your wits about you, you can be rewarded with some really beautiful and interesting photographs.
Below are a few detail images from the day, they will help set the stage for the pictures to come in later blog posts. Enjoy (you can click on the images to see them larger)…
