These posts are starting to pop up from other photographers and I have to admit, it’s one of my favorite posts to see every year! Not often do you get to see what’s going on behind the camera, much less how ridiculous we sometimes look when getting those amazing shots! And there are some in here of me that I may regret posting… and some that I’m sure Ben will not be excited to see on the internet. However, part of shooting with me means being willing to be vulnerable and real. And then realizing I may be posting on the blog sometime in the future :-)
So, dear internet, here’s what it looked like to be behind the camera with us this year!
It’s so strange to think that I was 34.5 weeks pregnant when we shot our first wedding of the year!
And I looked as awkward the entire day as I do in this photo on the right below!
But I will say that having Catherine with me at all of those weddings was really fun!
And apparently I did not let her slow me down!
So this is what my grooms look like when I’m photographing their bouts…
My favorite light tester :-)
If you hire me to photograph and Ben to video your wedding, you will have quite the entourage following you around all day.
Oh that sunset (and post baby bump… yikes!)!
Thankfully my brides love me regardless of what kind of shape I’m in ;-)
We attach bouts, we fix ties, we even put on or take off shoes! And y’all thought all we did on wedding days was take pictures… :-)
Sometimes I have to be IN the photos… because these people are like family!
I loved this image of these girls so much that I photoshopped myself out of the one I sent to my bride.
I don’t usually photoshop but sometimes it’s completely worth it!
Sometimes Ben will do a little jig…
And sometimes he’ll make friends with the grandmothers!
Even though we both look super serious in the one on the right, I love it because we never get photos of both of us doing our thing!
Short people problems…
Having a little fun with lighting!
Sometimes what’s happening in the background is more amusing than anything :-)
Again, I had to jump in for one because this family is my “Atlanta family”!
Ben likes the really close up shots.
So I got him back… and unintentionally documented The Beard.
Then there was the time that I was singing and dancing to Shake it Off for the sake of the couple’s son! Again, worth it.
Background = photobomber.
Whatever it takes to get the shot…
The paparazzi in the trees!
The video team!
I didn’t see these of Ben until after he was climbing around… which was probably better for my heart!
Still one of my favorites from the year!
The cutest d-group girl, turned bride, turned second shooter I ever did see! There are several in here that she captured for us :-)
Yikes, sometimes I look like I’m angry at the bridesmaids! I promise that wasn’t the case!
Another photo proving that my grooms think I’m crazy when I’m getting detail shots!
Light tester professionals… that’s us!
