My engagement photos were initially scheduled for Nov 19, but it rained. The next available appointment was not until Jan 8th, so I'd like to have a "rain plan" before then.
I googled for info and posted to Facebook, but amazingly, no one can come up with anything other than Gaylord Opryland and the Factory at Franklin. The issue with Gaylord is that I have to pay for parking for myself and the photographer (They charch $25 per car for parking), if it is really gloomy outside the indoor light tends to be low, and on certain days it's PACKED in there.
The Factory at Franklin doesn't open until 1pm on Sundays (my appointment is for 10am) and they charge $50 to use their facilty for a photo shoot. People have advised that we may be able to "get away with it," since I won't be in a bridal gown, but I don't want to waste my appointment "hoping" i can get away with something and I also don't think that the indoor portion of the factory at Franklin is worth $50.
FI has advised that we just go downtown and take pictures in the alley overhangs, The Arcade, and the footbridge that goes across the river. I think that's find if it's just drizzling, but if it's really coming down, it will be no fun to try and duck under overhangs and stand in the damp, cold Arcade. Meanwhile the photographers can't take pictures of us over an overhang while they are standing in a downpour.
Can you all think of any other alternatives? Thanks in advance for any ideas!
