One of my favorite posts of the year – the oh so embarrassing behind the scenes!! I realized when putting this together that in the flurry of twin babies last year we never shared our behind the scenes from any of our 2016 weddings so I’m going to share not only our 2017 season, but some behind the scenes from 2016 as well!! So here we go! (The not so glamorous life of wedding photographers! ;-)) Enjoy (at our expense)!! haha!
We’ll start with 2016 and the weird faces James like to make and how often I test my lighting on him when he doesn’t know it… haha…
James looking very contemplative in this empty church before the ceremony!
When you’re SO excited about the light and the photos you can’t help but say “oh my gosh! look at this!!”
I literally am the least photogenic person ever when a camera is turned on me. hahahaha
James looking like he’s about to sneeze on the stairs of the Armor House! 😉
When you run into old clients at your wedding!! (I swear Katherine & Tynan like me… hahahah. Their faces appear to say differently though! ;))
James doing his thing doing his thing!
James most likely making a comment about sometimes being a glorified pack mule… 😉
More light testing with the most handsome man round!
Again, incapable of playing it cool – EVER.
… and ever….
… and EVER. EVER. EVER.
Oh wait!! What is that?! A normal expression?! MIRACULOUS.
Why, yes – we will take a photo for you! 🙂
When the SWEETEST clients get married on Father’s Day and gave James a gift!!
Best thing I ever learned was how to pin a bout!
Feeling just a LITTLE lost in the sea here… hahahah… I’m all – “Hey! No, look here! Hey!” haha
“No, really!! LOOK AT ME ONLY!!!” hahahahaha
“And I need you to squeeze his arm like it’s a brand new fuzzy sweater you adore!”
When another one of your couples sister gets married and you shoot it!! You hug on your people a lot!! Pretty sure Tim had us yell “GABRIEL and MICAH!!!” right before taking this. hahaha
When this many of your brides are in one room – you take a photos!!!
What a year!! Now on to 2017!!!
James loves to make testing lights for family photos a little goofy! 😉
Like I said…
That’s all, your honor.
Fluffing dresses is an official part of my job description.
Acting like a total dork before a proposal!!
And getting caught doing it!! 😉
I just don’t know?!
Checking the light and the view before our proposal!
“What’s that you say? I’m dangerously close to those doughnuts? No no no… I don’t know what you’re talking about?! . . . .
OKAY, FINE. I was! hahaha. (But totally worth it!! OMNOMNOM)
“What do I do with my hands?
Let’s play a little game of “Where’s James?” Waldo styled!
I can’t think of anything clever for this one so I’ll just tell you I found this dress for $35 on Amazon?!
A highly unsuccessful way of holding a test light!!! haha.
Run run run!!!!!
Doing anything for the shot- like laying in the back of a speed boat so James could catch us driving away from the pier! haha
And that same boat (later) from J’s perspective… an okay place for sunset photos if you ask me!! 😉
Chatty James!! 😉 He loves our clients so much!!
Healthy James who started finally getting some rest in the past year again! (Making a goofy face, naturally!)
Another example of my weird weird self. I just don’t even know what I’m doing here?! haha
James making friends at Jillian and Dan’s rooftop wedding!
Remember when it used to be SO SUNNY and WARM?! Me neither.
Did I mention James makes friends wherever he goes?
All ready for our final shoot of the year – a proposal in the freeeezing cold!
Texting our client to make sure they were on time and we were all set!!
And that’s a wrap!!! Oh my gosh – love love looking back on these because I am once again reminded how crazy lucky we are to get to do this for a living together!!! Here’s to many more years of goofy behind the scenes photos yet to come, God willing! XOXO
