Okay, so here is the background:
Fiance and I have been struggling to find time in our busy schedules for engagement pictures, but finally settled on today, Oct. 26. Well, after battling chances of storms it is a bright, blue sky day with one major photo-ruiner problem: it is windy. Very very very windy- 20+ mph… and our pictures are in a field/park area.
So, on top of the weather scares over the past few days, I have been battling a terrible cold but was totally willing to take some dayquil and get our e-pics done! Well our photographer just sent me an email explaining that it is really windy and we could either brave it or reschedule. Well, of course I am torn. I work every week day until 6:15… where around here means only 20 minutes left of sun. So, to reschedule would put us 2 more weeks out. So, we tried this weekend but Fiance works at a car dealership and therefore cannot take time off at the end of the month. So… I guess this is more of a vent. But, should I cancel todays pictures or brave the winds?

Go with your gut and my opinion is wait. We were scheduled for this past Sunday and the forecast was cloudy, windy, and 58 with chance of rain. We were supposed to have them taken at a beach. I freaked out and was just going to suck it up, but instead emailed my photog and asked to switch locations to our home town. He was fine with it and we did our pics sunday and i am SO HAPPY i went with my gut. We got gorgeous city foliage pics with so much character. All i could picture at the beach was being windblown and cold. I knew it would be making me nervous the whole time if we were at the beach.
2 weeks won’t make a difference weather wise and if you’re worried about wind gusts you won’t be yourself. I was so relieved and relaxed on sunday and it all came across in the pics.
Hope this helps!

CapeBride is right, even though it SUCKS having to wait even longer, the pictures will be forever and you want them to be perfect! Wait for good weather and good health.

You’re both right! I went ahead and postponed the pictures! Now, just crossing my fingers for great weather- and less wind!
