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! All right, guys! Let’s see your BEST pose. And, GO!!!The cake always makes an appearance in our footage; not just because we want a bite of it. Heeeey, Tori! She’s such a wonderful second shooter/assistant! Holding my family portrait list and modeling at the same time. She’s one awesome multi-tasker!Brandon and I were each other’s models. Haha!Professional Dress Fluffer has been added to my resume. No joke!Becky! I love this sweet friend of mine. She was helpful in so many ways!Courtney’s flowers were so gorgeous! I, of course, had to get detail shots of those beauties. Starting 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.Thank 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. (Remember, we’ll be releasing our name and new look soon, so stay tuned!)“No Katie, your piece is down here. That’s my piece!”The wedding where I matched the bridesmaids perfectly! Ahh, a favorite.Tori’s either getting ready to fluff Sara’s dress or looking for a bug. I sure hope not the latter!Beautiful window light is where you’ll find me shooting details. Leeroy in the house! (Tori, too!)Couples who want to do portraits in a rowboat out on the water are the BEST kind. (And don’t worry, I always wear shorts underneath my dresses.) Love this fun shot of Becky!Getting ready for the cake cutting!Goodness, Isobel’s details and getting ready space was a photographer’s dream!Our friends from Modern Rebel & Co. and NST Pictures were awesome to work with!Hi Marisa!Here I come for the First Look! Oh, you wanted the bride instead? And, I promise I’m not giving Becky a dirty look. I was so worried about hurting Brittany while putting her veil back in. Eeek! LOL!Poor posture, a crinkled nose, and double chin. That’s one heck of a pretty look on me!My last wedding of the year, and it was absolutely FREEEEEZING, but beautiful! Brrrr.
I look forward to capturing more behind-the-scenes footage of 2018’s weddings! I can already picture what fun moments will be had. Get ready, TKP brides and grooms! 😉
