Today I’m not sharing photos from a wedding or an engagement shoot. . . it’s actually a post-wedding shoot! Because who doesn’t want an excuse to wear their wedding dress again, right?
I went to visit my friend and fellow wedding photographer Brandi Potter in her home state of Kentucky and she had a shootout planned during my visit! For those of you who don’t know, a shootout is a planned session where multiple photographers get together to network and to take photos for their portfolio as well as work on posing/being creative/or just having a good time. I tagged along to help during the session, and I was able to snap some beautiful photos of Raychel and Brooke. They were married a few months before but they still had that newlywed glow!
Not long after we started shooting, the rain started pouring down. We all huddled under the shelter of the trees to wait it out. The rain eventually slowed to a light drizzle, and we made our way into the field. Thankfully, my gear is weather sealed, so I was able to freely shoot in the rain.
Some photographers would be disappointed if it rained on the day of their shoot but not me! I LOVE taking photos in the rain because it adds another layer to the session. Sometimes weather doesn’t behave the way you wanted—the best thing to do is just embrace it, get wet, and have a blast. The rain made the day and these photos so much more playful than expected!
If you want to break out your wedding attire for a post-wedding shoot, I’m your girl! I promise your photos will turn out beautifully—rain or shine.
