MONOCHROME In The Rain | Engagement


An adventurous photoshoot- classic portraits in the studio, then an adventure in the rain. #radcouple  When I First Contacted Peyton and asked if she had rainboots- she said yes, and she was up for an adventure in the rain!engagement_photos_in_the_rain_and_photostudio_03

Here are 7 reasons why you should not cancel your engagement session if it rains:

  1. You get to wear your rain boots with a formal number, and it totally works.engagement_photographey_range_county_nicole_caldwell_studio_rain_09
  2. engagement_photographey_range_county_nicole_caldwell_studio_rain_10engagement_photographey_range_county_nicole_caldwell_studio_rain_12

You can also wear some heels in the studio 🙂





2. You get to wear a cute motorcycle jacket with youe formal number and boots- and it totally works.



3. In a usually busy park- there are no people around in your photos!


4. You get to stomp in puddles and play- something you won’t do on wedding day- so get sone great action shots in the water.





5. You get some great refelctions and textures whent the ground it wet.








6. Wet Hair Don’t Care- plus fun umbrella prop- that won’t seem dated in a few years like smoke bombs or balloons.




7. Bonus Reason: It rarely rains in SO CAL so TAKE ADVANTAGE and DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT.

Thank you Peytong and Dana for being open and leaving room for the unexpected.

Matt’s proposal to Rachel Featured in How They Asked by The Knot. Matt informed Rachel that his “Crazy Aunt”  was coming into town and he wanted them to meet.  Under the guise of dinner at a fancy place, Rachel dressed up.  This spot is very special to them ( one of their first dates).  He brought a bottle of wine and said he wanted to visit the spot before dinner to take the edge off before meeting Crazy Aunt!
