Photographers LOVE cloudy skies as they give really good lighting.

Get some cute umbrellas and you can take some really good shots. We had rainy day shots from our wedding day and I adore them. Even though I don’t adore the fact that my outdoor ceremony had to be moved. But the pictures turned out great!

If it makes you feel better, my photographer said rainy days are awesome for pics!  He showed us a few E-pics and wedding pics he’s taken in the rain and they were beautiful!

Maybe wear some brighter colors to counteract the gloomy??

Hope this helps you feel better.  Good luck! 🙂

@KatNYC2011:  Hmmm…

Does it have to be an outdoor shoot?  The sculpture court or the Temple of Dendur inside the Met would make for some pretty images.

Grand Central is also good for engagement shoots!  Keeping my fingers crossed for you that it isn’t too rainy.  I agree that overcast skies do make for better pictures. 🙂

Your photographer will surely have some ideas.  I love the idea of bright clothing and fun umbrellas for some shots.  Yes, cloudy skies are perfect for lighting.  How exciting though.  I can’t wait to see your pictures when you get them back.

I second what the PPs said about cloudy day shots – my bestie who is a professional photographer adores them because the light is great. Apparently the cloudiness allows for more neutral lighting that allows colors to come through while sometimes too much sunshine can wash things out on film.

Maybe you can do some shots around Bryant Park and the Library? Ooh and there’s the Victorian park, carousel and zoo in Central Park – they’re indoor/outdoor areas so you can duck in there if it starts to sprinkle.
