We use advanced satellite and radar monitoring of the weather to assure your window of opportunity. It rarely rains the whole day. It may be raining at one beach and not the next a few miles away. We get beautiful portraits on cloudy days when the lighting is very soft, similar to a studio setup. You will squint less and the shadows won’t be as harsh. Most people prefer their expressions on a cloudier day. We can still photograph in a light rain, drizzle, misty, and foggy conditions but can usually time it between showers. If you are real lucky, a rainbow may appear in your background. We usually photograph about an hour before sunset on sunny days. If it is cloudy or rainy, your session may be earlier depending on the weather. We are determined and experienced to give you the best portrait during the best conditions of the day. Please leave your day open for schedule changes if necessary. There are options. If we have the next day available, we will gladly reschedule or we may be able to photograph before an already scheduled session. There was RECORD Rainfall for the Summer of 2013 with about 30 inches! Despite the odds, we completed everyone's scheduled sessions except for one we switched to an earlier day before the rain came. It is a good idea to book your session early in your stay, just in case.
