19 May April + Sam – Engagement – West Village, NYC
Weather is always a concern for couples when planning a photo shoot. However for some of us photographers, we like to say “Bring it on Mama Nature!” I personally love the challenge of adjusting to whatever kind of weather is thrown my way. It forces you to think on your feet and try to make best of the situation. Earthquake? No problem. Love the way the light is hitting that huge gash in the middle of the street. Just try not to shake too much or fall in while I’m taking the shot 😛 Our job as wedding photographers is to solve problems quickly and accommodate any situation.
April & Sam actually wanted to have their e-session in the pouring rain. That would’ve been fantastic if it actually rained! Instead, we were rewarded with that awkward and confused kind of powdery, misty rain which sort of just floats there going in all different directions and can’t make up it’s mind where to land. The kind of rain where the droplets are too small to capture in a still image and the only moisture you can actually see is the kind that builds up on the front of your lens. Yea, that kind of rain. It wasn’t the most ideal of conditions but we always make it work. Problem solving, remember?
Looking at their smiles, you would never have thought that it was a gloomy day. Congrats you two!
