A little rain can be a good thing!

 As the saying goes, a little rain on your wedding day is good luck for your marriage! But a rainy day doesn't need to mean that you won't get great pictures, either!
  Rain can be many things- a downpour is exciting, a spring shower is romantic. And an umbrella- well, it's the ultimate unifying symbol, no?
 I just love this shot from a rainy wedding just a couple of weeks ago. The bride's body is turned-in towards his, as she scoops up her big skirt to keep it out of the puddles. The slightly desaturated color that you get on a rainy day gives the shot a calm, romantic tone. But the bit of motion blur adds a hint of excitement and energy.
This was taken with my Contax 645, and was probably shot at f2.8 a 1/30th.
