Rain Out

It's usually the result of hard work or some sort of miraculous gift to have the weather, time of day, quality of light and a location all show up with a subject at the right time on the same shoot; when they do the results can be wonderful.

When one or more are missing - that's usually the teachable moment, a lesson in planning, preparation and execution. Sometimes, however, in spite of best-laid plans, it rains, (be prepared and remember the unexpected can be a benefit), and other times you get lucky.

I recently photographed a wedding and was on the right side of many of these elements.
