Behind The Scenes :: 2013 Weddings


That's a wrap! 2013 weddings have been photographed, edited, delivered, and blogged (except for one). It was a busy and fantastic season. I've learned so many new things this year and it's been so fun to put it all to practice. As exhausting, time consuming, and stressful as weddings are, it's so worth all of the work, and I couldn't have been more blessed with the couples and people I was able to photograph this year. 
I'm so grateful for each of the girls who helped me out with second shooting. Angelina, Anna, and Lindsey, I couldn't have done it without each of you. To have a travel partner, emotional supporter, camera carrier, and location scouter is invaluable. I can't say "thank you" enough! 
So here's a little peak behind the scenes! 

Can you spot me in the crowd? 

Anna's sneaking into my shot! 

Sometimes you've gotta play the part to make sure the lighting is all good. 

Angelina models in front of the church to see if this would be a good spot for family pictures. 


We don't just take pictures...we take care of small things too. Like bustling the dress. ;) 






Comparing images and giving photo tips to guests...that's part of the job too. 


The light looks good here! 


More practice shots. Kiss the crackers?





Caught in the act...marshmallows are a good break from shooting. 





I'm looking forward to the adventures next year brings!

The Tyson Family

The fall season brings a lot of family pictures, and I love it! I always have a blast photographing this family in particular. Last time I took their pictures it was just Brian, Shelley, and Emma. This year was extra fun having little Kate along! Check out their adorable outfits! Shelley is super stylish, and dresses her little girlies the best!

Adam and Phoebe :: Married

At the end of my trip to Europe, I came home, worked a few days, slept a little, then headed down to sunny (and HOT!) Florida to shoot a beautiful wedding. Because Phoebe had been out of the country, and then I went out of the country, we had only emailed back and forth before the wedding. After becoming friends with her on facebook, and reading her emails, I could tell she had a fun and upbeat personality. Sure enough, on the day of the wedding, meating Phoebe and Adam and their families was so fun! Angelina (my amazing second shooter) and I were so happy to be a part of the day as two incredible families coming together to celebrate Adam and Phoebe's marriage! 
























































Adam and Phoebe, thank you so much letting us be a part of your wedding! It was truly a pleasure!
