There’s a reason I start most wedding blog posts off by talking about the elements. If you live in Colorado, you know it already….we get some crazy weather! Looking back on the warm winter we had and witnessing this spring’s thundersnow has got me thinking about all the different weather conditions we’ve experienced while photographing.
Wedding photographers are a resourceful bunch. They’re problem solvers. If the bride is nervous on her wedding day, they put her at ease and make sure she’ll be comfortable in front of the camera. If four of the five groomsmen are inexplicably missing during the bridal party shoot, they rearrange the timeline to make sure those images will be captured later on.

They go into a vast array of different shooting situations and, regardless of an infinite number of variables, they make art that will be treasured by the bride and groom for years to come.
