When it Rains it Snows

I love how the flash is making a rainstorm evoke a quiet snowy moment. We got a massive storm in NYC in the middle of an engagement shoot. I knew it was coming, so I said to the couple: “We can either stay nice and dry and shoot in Grand Central … or we can play in the rain and try for something extraordinary.”

I’m very happy they chose to play in the rain with me. My pocketwizard contacts started shorting out about 30 seconds after this photo (but were fine after a quick toweling-off).
