1. Use backlight to make the raindrops pop out during your wedding photography session.
If there is one thing that you will need to take note of one way or the other, it would have to be the fact that you will need to make sure that you are prepared for anything and everything that could ever come your way. This includes something unexpected like rain. Yes, it can be a bit of a damper (pun intended). However, as with the rest of all of the other unexpected things out there that can potentially ruin your wedding photography shoot, you can really turn things around and make them work for your advantage. The rain actually can be a pretty good thing for the pictures that you take. One thing for you to make sure that the rain drops really shine through in the photos that come out would be for you to use backlight in your shoot. It will make the raindrops look like they can jump out of the picture any time and it is something magical when it all comes down to it.
2. Keep a pretty good amount of plastic bags with you for protection in case rain starts to happen during your wedding photography shoot.
You will also need to make sure that you are able to protect your photography gear at all times and rain is one of those things that can really pretty much ruin it one way or the other. You need to make sure that you are able to have enough foresight to pack in a bunch of one gallon Ziploc bags that will fit your photography in perfectly in the event of rain. Ziploc bags will cost you next to nothing and when it all comes down to it, you will be quite happy that you are able to really prepare for it well ahead of time.
3. Include any rain puddles in your wedding photography composition.
When it rains for a few minutes or so, you can usually expect puddles to form in the middle of the road. Although that may be considered as a bit of a nuisance for some, it is something that you can work up to your advantage if you are creative and imaginative enough for it. You can use the puddles and the reflections in them as a sort of artistic angle that you can more or less play around with. Puddles are awesome to have and they are particularly awesome to take when the rain is still falling.
4. Look for cover as much as possible to protect you and your gear from the rain.
When it rains, it does not have to mean that you will have to get wet and suffer for it at the end of the day. As a dorset wedding photographer, you should still constantly look for areas of cover so that you can shoot the rest of the event while you and your gear are pretty much dry and safe. You need to make sure that you are able to stay sensible through it all, after all.
