Does anyone have a plan B if unfortunate weather comes on the wedding day? How will you make do with indoor pictures? Im getting married in November and I live in MA, so who knows if there will be snow. I really really hope not.

hi! I’m a photographer based in MA, I feel your pain on the unpredictability of the weather! Unless it is absolutely pouring, I still try to get some outdoor shots with my clients for their portraits with some big umbrellas (which can turn out really cute!). If you need to move indoors for pictures, look for a room that has lots of access to natural light – like a giant wall of windows, preferably. Also ask your photographer what kind of lighting they bring to compensate for indoor photography – I expect most MA photogs to be ready with some kind of answer for you. Have your photos taken earlier in the day – before sunset – to get light as well.

I’m in MA as well, and I’m glad you are thinking about these things. I recommend having a walk-threw with your photographer to create a game plan. We offer this to all our clients (in the area) so no one is scrambling to find the spot day of. I also recommend doing this as close to your wedding as possible so you will get an idea of where the sun will be and how much light you will have available.

Yup. I’m getting married in RI and New England weather is never what you want it to be so we brainstored a few places which would work well for indoor photographs and are between the ceremony and reception venues. We’re thinking of the State House or a building at the university since we met at the University. We thought about background and other eements but id not consider natural likat. The State house is vary popular for wedding photos and has a grand staircase and we both like the building so it seemed like an atural choice then the University building has a nice open atrium with some large scale art and actually lots of natural light thanks to a glass celing.
A rainy wedding i was in chose to take indoor photos at a retirement home. I thought it was odd but there was a nice fireplace at the entrance and aparently they often let people take wedding photos there. We quickly left and finished photos at the reception venue however, because the fireplace was lit and it was really hot in June. The photos at the reception were kind of boring but the venue did have a seperate photo room so it worked out. Maye you want to check with your venue and then think of places you like which won’t be so crowded.
