I have been looking forward to this post all year!! Well, all of last year, that is! I always love seeing other photographer’s behind-the-scenes posts, so I’ve been setting aside pictures all year for mine! I really shouldn’t be so excited because there are some very very unflattering pictures of me in here, like seriously. Who knew you could look so bad when taking pictures of pretty people?! I’ve also realized that I tend to have this “evil eye” when I shoot. Usually you would squint the eye that’s not in the view finder, but apparently I like to leave mine wide open looking SUPER creepy! I guess I tired from all that squinting and I just leave it open! haha! You’ll see what I mean soon enough! So have a good laugh today at my expense! All pictures courtesy of my hubby, plus a few from Maria Grace Photography and Christina Barnum Photography!
See what I mean about that evil eye?!?! Yikes!
Short girl problems. Sweet Crystal bent down for me so I could get a shot of her headband!
I have a tendency to just grab people’s hands and put them where I want them. Oops! :-p
Thanks for laughing at my jokes, Anne! :)
Branden’s favorite part of the wedding day, fake cake cutting!
Ok, so I wasn’t really sure what to do with this picture. I didn’t seem appropriate to post, but it was just too funny so I couldn’t resist. I think what’s going on behind that smiley face is self-explanatory- but I swear it wasn’t on purpose!
Jogger photobomb… in Busch Gardens?… strange.
Well, that’s lovely!
Oh the glamorous life of a wedding photographer. Putting together the same-day slideshow in a supply closet!
Same-day slideshow for the win!
Demonstrating the proper “nuzzle” location.
Getting bossy! :-p
My favorite test models!
Now here’s the Where’s Waldo section!
My Aunt Susan as a guest at one of this year’s wedding and serving as the honorary third photographer!
Demonstrating the fake laugh. It’s a good thing I’m behind the camera and not in front of it.
Just chatting it up with one of my dearest high school friends. Best.Job.Ever.
When there’s still a little bit of light left after a beach photoshoot, time for some fun!
Professional dress fluffers!
It kind of looks like Crystal and I are reminiscing over our cheer days! haha!
Everyone loves Henry!
When you’re not willing to swap your 85 out for something wider, you gotta go into the bushes!
Demonstrating how to “scrunch” together!
Yep, just like that!
Miss Christina was getting creative!
Yeah, I seem to get into some very unflattering positions during ring shots.
So as the flower girl walked down the aisle, she turned to me and said “hold this” as she handed me her basket of petals! Too funny! That’s why you have a second photographer- in case there’s a flower girl emergency! haha!
Not sure what’s going on in the pic of the right… hmm..
A friendly guest just passing out some Star Wars stickers!
Gah! That eye!
Man, Branden’s got a tough job- riding in golf carts and test modeling. hehe JK!
I’m really not sure what to say about this one. I really hope that Brian just had to sneeze or something! haha!
Details light testing. Yep, looks good!
Hey guys, where are you going?! Come back, please! P.S. I swear I didn’t intentionally coordinate my outfit with the wedding!
Double bagging it.
Sometimes we like to take a break for a slow dance together. Thanks for the pic, Christina!
And of course there were plenty of iPhone pics from the year too!
Hiding out on the Noland Trail for Crystal and Drew’s proposal!!
Nemo saved the day for getting the Nichols kiddos to smile!
First same day slideshow was a success!
Same day slideshow in the closet- whatever works!
Branden is the master of iPhone sun flare!
