Not so much. After the new Woody Allen movie, Midnight in Paris, combined with rainy weather that has been dimming the City of Lights, this phrase has been popping up a lot for me.
I was recently contacted to photograph a couple coming to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary in Paris. Unfortunalty it was scheduled to rain all week long. Not a problem for me, I like a challenge and some of the best images in my portfolio have been taken in bad weather.
I told the couple that the shoot will run rain or shine and to buy an umbrella so we can take some fun rainy day Paris images. I have to say that this couple made the job easy, they were so well spirited and had a great attitude.
We shot for about an hour and and unfortunately the wife's make up started to run and the winds were getting stronger. They were such good troopers that I offered to split the shoot for another day.
We had better weather the second time, but my favorite images were the ones in the rain.
I started Photo Perfect Paris to combine my love of photography with my love of Paris and as a way to share my passion with others.
