Bloopers + Behind the Scenes

This is the first time I’ve ever posted something like this on my blog, and I actually can’t believe I’m finally brave enough to do it! Today I’m sharing some behind the scenes photos and bloopers from the past year. I take a few thousand photos on each wedding day, and it is inevitable that I end up in some of them! Here are a few that describe what I go through on a typical wedding day.


In this photo, my second shooter had me stand in the spot we had planned to use for bridal party shots. We wanted to see how many people we could fit in this small space in front of the trees. There was a parking lot to the right and a building to the left, so we needed to make sure we could fit fourteen people in this spot!
