Once again, I’m slow on the blogging, but not for lack of work to show. I have so many weddings/shoots that I’m dying to show you that are ready to blog as soon as the client sees them first or blogs publish them! In the meantime, I thought it’d be fun to show a little bit of what I’ve been up to this year so far in the form of “Behind the Scenes.” As the one in front of the camera all the time, there are very few pictures of me at work on most shoots, but for the recent weddings where I had second shooters, I can give you a fun glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes on the wedding day.
I never know why I’m so sore after the wedding day until I see pictures like this…Oh no wonder. I was doing squats all day long!
Sometimes I’m a photographer, sometimes I’m a bridesmaid. Always try to keep extra meds, pins, shout wipes, deodorant etc on me because you never know what a bride might need…
When the schedule allows I pull together a same-day slideshow for my couples during their cocktail reception as a surprise. Seeing their reactions is always my favorite part. This photo was particularly fun since these are three of my 2013 couples all congregated around Jenna and Mike’s slideshow. See more from Jenna and Mike’s wedding here
Staging details takes a lot of patience. Since I have very little for detail photography which requires balancing things and moving things micro inches, I try to channel mine from the Mister Miyagi place within.
I have much more patience for arranging people since they don’t accidentally fall over (usually) in the middle of my shot like a bouquet might. So I can get it just right….
Have a beautiful week!
