I would go ahead with it! If you have a good photographer they will be able to do beautiful rain photos ๐Ÿ˜Š We had terrible weather for our engagement photoshoot, they were at the beach and it very nearly rained and was dark and overcast and blowing an absolute gale but my photographer made it work! ๐Ÿ˜Š

Rain can make for some gorgeous shots with a good photographer!

Can you find an inside spot to do them at? Make them more lifestyle and do them in a cafe or something?

If your photographer can protect his/her equipment, you could still do photos outside with clear umbrellas and the photos would still turn out good.

Our photographer initially asked us for 2 dates, one as a backup in case of bad weather. We were also traveling (only about 2 hours by car) and just made a weekend out of it, but the evening before our first date, the photographer suggested we cancel and move to the second date. It ended up being just fine the second date.

I know it’s hard with travel, but if you make an early decision and move to another date it could all work out for the best.

zzar45 :  Oh that’s such a shame! Have you had a look around for any cool indoor places you could have your photos? Maybe at the first cafe or something you and SO went to could be cute ๐Ÿ˜Š

Ugh that stinks that it’s your photog who wants to cancel. It rained during ours (and during our wedding…so lucky! ๐Ÿ˜‰) but we still went for it and just used a big clear umbrella. I actually love them!

My trash the dress photos were taken under heavy rain, and they are amazing!! The rain makes all the colors pop out more!! 

You should totally do them (if the photog is on board)

Just make sure that your mua (in case you are using one) use waterproof everything and that your hair will look good wet! 

If you want an ideq you can check my past thread were I posted these pics
