Chané & Jacques picnic engagement session with Elize Mare Photographyt will for sure be one that’ll be remembered.
We planned a pretty Picnic setting at Bojangles venue outside Pretoria, and even though rain was predicted on the day of the shoot, we all decided to continue.
On our way to the venue, there were some rain clouds in the sky, but it did clear up and I though we would have perfect weather…. well that changed 5 minutes into the session and we quickly had to move the outside setting to indoors. The rain came BUCKETING down, and with them seated as close to the door as possible, I was hunched under an umbrella outside the venue to capture their love – it was SOAKING but worth it!
The change in weather and off course the lack of natural light because of the storm clouds, had me thinking on my feet and my trusted assistant (for those of you that have shot with me before know it’s my husband) assisted with off camera flash work – this really made for some dramatic images, but I really do love the outcome.
When the heavy rain passed, there were still a good drizzle coming down, and off course I had to get some rain shots. Despite Chané being cold she went with it, as this is what memories are made of!
Champagne in the rain!
These are just a few of my favorites 🙂
