    "If you're trying to take photos in the rain while keeping your dress dry, you might as well forget it," said Hoffer. "The reality is that if you're going to get cool photos in the rain, you're going to get a bit wet. That's the fun part!"

    “A downpour is the best looking kind of rain, but you really can only get a few seconds at a time before everything (equipment included) gets completely ruined," said Hoffer.

    "Twilight and night provide the best opportunity to take amazing rain picture," said Shirk. "A remote flash hidden behind a couple enables the photographer to freeze the raindrops and make the them look magical.”
