I realize how ‘Saskatchewan’ it is to talk about the weather, but it has a big impact on my work so it’s a topic I find comes up often. And, for Kathryn and Kyle’s wedding day, weather played a role too. It had rained earlier in the morning while everyone was still getting ready – good luck, we all said. Then, after the ceremony, while we were outside photographing family formals we all looked to the sky as the dark clouds began to fill in above us. Big raindrops hit my windshield just as we hopped in the car to go to the next location for photos of the bride, groom, and bridal party. Normally, I would have a few backup plans in place specifically for these situations. However, we aren’t normally in the middle of a pandemic in the heart of wedding season, so all of my usual backup locations weren’t taking bookings and outdoors was our only option. As we drove from the east end of Regina to downtown, hail pounded on my car and the rain was coming down in sheets. Panic sweat began to form as I ran through possible options, because our plan of ‘just using umbrellas’ was not going to work in a hail storm. Then, when we were just 1 block away from the next location we were planning to shoot at the clouds parted, the hail halted, and the rain slowly stopped falling. So, if someone asks me if it’s good luck to have rain on your wedding day, I’ll always answer yes.
