I usually keep an eye on the weather when I have an upcoming wedding or session. When I have one scheduled in Mobile or Baldwin counties, I watch it like a hawk. My dad always said, “If you don’t like the weather in Mobile, wait 15 minutes and it will change.” You definitely have to have a backup plan any time you schedule a photo session in the rainiest city in the country. Caroline wanted to take her bridal portraits in Daphne, which is just across the bay from Mobile. Unpredictable rain is very likely considering Daphne’s close proximity to Mobile.
It was much easier to monitor the weather for Caroline’s bridal session since Caroline is a meteorologist! She works at WKRG, which is the station I grew up learning from and watching.
We had originally scheduled our session during golden hour to get that dreamy glow, but a storm threatened to cancel our session completely. Caroline saw that the weather would not start getting bad until later in the afternoon, so we rescheduled for 3:00 PM. The weather started out perfect – even sunny for a little while! We went to a few spots on the Bayside Academy campus where her mom works and she went to school years ago.
Just as we were going to get some shots of Caroline sitting in the grass, it started to rain. Thankfully, we had 30 minutes of perfect weather and we were able to get plenty of photos before it started pouring. I like to think that Caroline’s modeling skills and my quick posing skills made an excellent team that day! 😉
Caroline, thank you so much for being flexible with your bridal session! The weather can surprise us sometimes, but I’m thankful it worked out for us to get plenty of photos before the rain hit. You looked amazing and I cannot wait to see more pictures from your wedding in Michigan!
