Oh my goodness, I can’t believe that today is the last day of 2014. It has been quite a year but I know that this coming year will be even more amazing… mostly due to the fact that once midnight rolls around, we’ll be able to say things like, “We’re having a baby this year!!” It’s so crazy!
It has been so much fun going through our weddings to post some of my favorites from the year and this post is no different! I have LOVED seeing our friends in the photography industry post their behind the scenes posts these last couple of weeks. Wedding days are so amazing because we get to capture a couple on the happiest day of their life and I love getting to show you each beautiful wedding throughout the year!
But these photos, the ones of Ben and me working (or being light testers), usually stay tucked away in a folder on my computer. However, there were some gems from this year that need to be shared! Some are incredibly embarrassing (I really don’t know what kind of expression is on my face half the time!) and some are just really funny (like when someone is behind me and their hands in the air make it look like I have bunny ears). So, here’s a peek into what a wedding day looks like from our side of the camera!
Obviously this is my “I’m a southern girl and don’t know what to do with all of this cold white fluffy stuff” face.
Kristin and David acted like the cold was no.big.deal… while I acted like we were all about to freeze to death!
These bridesmaids were SUCH troopers standing in the snow in their dresses!!
Probably my favorite light-testing photos yet!
Sometimes I play baby whisperer at receptions.
Totally kidding, she was already asleep :-)
Getting the details.
Can you find Ben in here??
I’m very serious when it comes to instructing my couples on how to cut their cake.
Guests tend to shed their shoes at the reception. We mostly keep ours on!
And if you didn’t know, I’m also a profession boutonniere putter-on person.
Apparently, I also do this bendy thing when I photograph. Clearly I don’t think I’m short enough already…
Clearly I like to raise my hand and make promises to the bridesmaids that even the bride doesn’t believe ;-)
Even though I look it, I promise I wasn’t angry here!
Haha! Two of my favorite photos… I don’t know that we could have done this again if we tried!
Oh mercy… my hair! I really should look in a mirror before walking into a reception!
Bout professional right here…
You can tell they were so interested in what I had to say ;-)
At least the girls were paying attention!
I’m slightly embarrassed to admit how many of these next two photos (in these same spots) we have of each other…
When being my light tester, sometimes he smiles, sometimes he makes faces, sometimes he gives me a look and a low-key thumbs up.
And now I know what I look like with bunny ears!
I actually really like this one of us :-)
Remember when I wasn’t 33 weeks pregnant and could bend down like this so easily??
There’s my bendy move again!
Some wedding parties just don’t get my jokes… it’s ok guys. Really.
Maybe for the weekends we don’t have weddings, I could offer my services as an assistant just to pin the bouts on the guys!
Crouching Tiger, hidden Sabrina.
Not only is he really good at being a light tester, he’s great at holding the off-camera flash too!
Ah! I look like I’m shooting daggers at the make-up artist! Kinda scary, Sabrina…
It looks like I was the only guest at the wedding… and was really worried about it!
Seems I wanted to try and catch the garter too… but the guys in the blue shirts are all, “Don’t even think about it!”
And sometimes I get to take a few photos of my husband doing HIS thing!
No Rony, look THIS way!
I’m pretty sure I was just concentrating REALLY hard on pinning those flowers on…
Oh my heavens… God gave me SUCH a handsome husband!!
LOL! This one cracks me up!
Ben suggested the shot on the right but I had to show you how much he suffers as he helps me with these detail photos!
Oh my gosh, I must have been doing something crazy… all three of them are looking at me like I’ve lost my mind!
Occasionally we play in traffic…
Oh my gosh, I look like I’m about to have a melt down!!
Light tester AND glow stick tester!
Every once in a while the grooms look to Ben for help from whatever it is I’m putting them through ;-)
His facial expressions crack me up!
I’m so thankful that I get to work with my favorite person. And we are so excited about all that 2015 has in store for us!
