Winter Seattle Wedding on a Rainy Day

Winter Wedding in Seattle, Couple portrait in the rain

Being in the Greater Seattle area, it's always difficult to predict what the weather will be like on the day of the wedding. Especially around December - chances are it's going to rain at some point on your wedding day. But don’t let the rain discourage you; your photographs can turn out even more beautiful and poetic in the rain.

I have plenty of couples who have asked what we’ll do if it starts raining, and I usually respond, "well, I love it when it rains!" Well, unless it's pouring. Otherwise, the rain always makes everything so much better. It just adds an element of romance into the images.

It was a gloomy day in Kenmore, Washington. Allison and Zach got married at the magnificent chapel at Bastyr University. And let me tell you, not a lot of wedding venues can beat the stunning interior of this chapel.

As soon as it started raining towards the end of the night, I immediately told Zach and Allison it's time to go out and have some fun in the rain.

We picked up an umbrella and went out for about 3 minutes. I used the artificial light behind the couple to capture the droplets of rain falling down from the umbrella for a dramatic effect. The cherry on top, of course, is the couple’s love-filled expressions.
