What if it rains?

“What if it Rains” on our photo day? The answer is the weather will more than likely clear up. We have a plan in case it does.

Here are a few of my suggestions:

What if it rains on my Photo day! What can I do to ensure that I get my photos during my vacation? Schedule photos at the beginning of your vacation. Scheduling early allows a make-up day if we happen to get rain on your picture day. We are booked every evening at sunset during the prime summer months, so if we have to reschedule, it may have to be a late afternoon session or a sunrise. If there is no good time for your family, Beach Shutters will give you a full refund.

Afternoon storms are expected during the summer.

As the days heat up, clouds build and do stir-up thunderstorms. These usually come around 4-5 pm. I am very thankful for these afternoon showers. They cool the beach down, wash away footprints, and run the sunbathers inside. The rain has usually passed by photo time, and we have a lovely setting for our session!

Let’s check the radar!

Just because it is raining at the Gulf State Park doesn’t mean it is raining at Alabama Point East. If there are sunset showers, there is a chance they are isolated. In this case, we can check the radar, pack up the family and go down the coast a few miles for clear weather. I have had this happen many times, and it works out just fine. One family that got rained out of their favorite spot was flexible enough to try a city beach in Gulf Shores. We relocated and got terrific photos! They said they wanted to meet at the Gulf Shores beach the following year! Now they have a new favorite spot!

Clouds are beautiful! If it is threatening rain, I like to go ahead and take photos.

As long as there is no lightning and rain, the clouds make a magical background for beach photos. So don’t let the weather worry you too much. If it does happen to rain, we will reschedule if there is any way possible. We can take indoor photos or happily refund your deposit if it does not work out!

If you need a rainy day plan for your family, consider these suggestions: The Wharf movie theater, Brandon Styles show at OWA, The Factory indoor trampoline park, Tambo’s skate shop, or Fat Daddy’s arcade Gulf Shores. These are a few of our daughter’s indoor activities to enjoy. After all, you know what they say, “a rainy day at the beach is better than a day at the office”!
