2017 Behind the Scenes

Guys, this is my very first BTS post! I’m super excited to share what a wedding day looks like behind the scenes and in the shoes of a wedding photographer. Of course not every moment is captured of us working, walking through muddy water, getting bitten in the ear, screaming when there is a bee in sight, etc. My team and I are busy focusing on my couple, their moments, and paying close attention to the sweet moments that happen throughout the wedding day.

Here are just a few photos that I found from a bunch of this year’s beautiful weddings. I actually started including a behind-the-scenes folder in my couple’s wedding galleries, which I’m sure they’ll appreciate looking back on and getting a kick out of.

I hope you enjoy scrolling through these photos and getting a feel for what a wedding photographer does! 2017-12-26_0001All right, guys! Let’s see your BEST pose. And, GO!!!2017-12-26_0002The cake always makes an appearance in our footage; not just because we want a bite of it. 2017-12-26_0003Heeeey, Tori! 2017-12-26_0004She’s such a wonderful second shooter/assistant!

I, of course, had to get detail shots of those beauties. 2017-12-26_0009Starting out the day with Katie’s beautiful details. This is one of my most favorite parts of a wedding day! It sets the tone for the rest of the day, and from here, I can build onto my couple’s story.2017-12-26_0010Thank you to all of our couples who gave Brandon and I the opportunity to work together this year! We are so excited about becoming an official photo + video business.
