I'm an amateur and don't have clients. But if I were a professional and would like to keep my clients, I'd better do what I was hired for. As far as I know, there is nothing special about rain that would prevent one from taking photos. "I had to run away because my carefully styled hairdo would have suffered" probably doesn't work as an excuse.

Also, if I were a professional and got hired for an outdoor event, I'd make sure I take a poncho or some other raingear with me. That's even a good idea for amateurs, I think ;).

U're not paid to run away frm the rain.

if the event goes on, u shoot as per normal.
if its cancelled, run with the rest.

It would be extremely bad business ethics to agree to a job and then not perform it. If you think you should be paid more, bring it up before you accept the job.
