Don’t fret if you wake up to clouds on your big day: moody skies make for striking photos and eliminate harsh shadows.
Ease stress on the big day by seeking out an aesthetically striking venue. It means your time isn’t taken up travelling between locations, and allows your photographer to focus on taking great photos. A calm, happy mind will shine through on film, too.
