Welcome to the wacky wonderful world of wedding photography where if something can go wrong it will. It is hard to know exactly what I would do if I were in your shoes.

I did have a wedding last year where it rained all day. We were facing the prospect of shooting in the hotel lobby but the clouds parted just as the sun was setting and I got a great photo of the couple out on the shore over looking the lake using just one flash and a tripod. If we werenít able to do that I have a backup plan.

I bring a mini studio set up to every wedding. It consists of two umbrellas, two Manfrotto stands and two 580EXs, one 550EX, one 420EX, an ST-E2 plus lots of batteries. I also have a backdrop in a bag. If it is warm outside then I will set up there. If it is windy then I set up the flashes without the umbrellas. If I canít get what I need outside I set up inside.

Hope this helps.
