Adventurous Rainy and Foggy Elopement in Acadia National Park

Sep 28, 2022 | Weddings | 5 comments

Bad weather forecast expected for your photo session? No problem. Acadia weather can be so unpredictable, regardless of what the weatherman or radar might say. And even if it does rain, the adventure must go on! These two were able to dodge the raindrops for most of our time together and posed in front of moody skies along the rocky cliffs. Sometimes people can be very leary of doing photos if its not perfectly sunny out, but often times that just isn’t the case. And if you’ve seen any of my photos, you will see that I have worked in some moody weather, and produced some wonderful images. It’s not about a perfect session or having clear blue skies, it’s about the emotions and the experience. 

After adventuring to a few places in the park like the beach and cliffs, we made our way up Cadillac Mountain. Half way up, we pulled off to the side to look back down onto downtown Bar Harbor. We could also see a very clouded, foggy road ahead and I knew it was about to rain if we proceeded higher up the mountain. Normally you can see for miles and miles and you may even get a super epic sunset up there, but not this time. But just as cool was a thick cloud of fog, and I just kept on creating with the Bride and Groom. It was the perfect vibe for my dark and moody style. I think these two really nailed it and followed my directions perfectly. Before parting ways, I thought maybe just one more idea would be fun, where I had them put their car lights on in the rain and fog, and to pose in front of them. I was so glad they were down because I’ve never taken photos like this before in my entire career!
