Now that another year has come and gone, it’s time for my favorite post of the year! Behind the scenes!! This is the post that gives you a little glimpse into this oh so glamorous job! Whether it’s laying flat on the floor in my wedding day attire or climbing on top of things while wearing a dress (always with shorts underneath!), you gotta do whatever it takes to get the shot! This post also reminds me why I am behind the camera and not in front of it on wedding days! Oh man, I am looking rough during some of these weddings! So this is the one day out of the year that I put my pride aside so that you all can have a good laugh! Enjoy the 2015 edition of behind the scenes! Get comfortable, it’s a long one! Where’s a hair tie when you need it?! Last year I mentioned how I tend to shoot with both eyes open, even though it looks pretty creepy! Well, the evil eye was alive and well this year too! Guys, I swear I am not this bossy! But it sure looks like I am! Get in line, people!!! Stop right there! See, I actually am nice! Wait a second, if we’re both in the picture, who has the camera?! Infinite mirrors! One of Branden’s many skills- catching me off guard! Branden skill #2- providing directions! I don’t know why I bother doing my hair for weddings. As soon as I step outside, this happens! The photographer shuffle! Such a glamorous job! A behind the scenes photo within a behind the scenes photo! Spotted my friend, Jami, rocking some Bride & Groom portraits in Yorktown! Miss Kelsey to the rescue! Hands down Branden’s favorite engagement session location so far! When the church has strict photography rules, you go undercover as a guest with a nice camera! Rocking those rainy wedding days! Gotta love those unpredictable summer storms! Take cover! Guests love to take the camera to grab a picture of us! I think this is the only one we got that was in focus! Did I mention that I’m also a professional wardrobe adjuster? It’s a good thing my clients are a lot better at doing my poses than I am at demonstrating them! Good Lord! Branden skill #3- test model extraordinaire! Same day slideshow for the win! The veil whisperer! Short girl problems! If only I could be a foot taller just when I’m shooting! Loved working with some awesome videographers this year! Shaina is in the zone! I swear we didn’t color coordinate on purpose! Looking fly, Tyler! And of course, there were plenty of iPhone shots throughout the year too! Photographer squats! Branden takes great pride in his selfie behind the scenes shots! Tyler even made it in one! When walking through the not-so-nice part of Downtown Atlanta, it’s a good idea to have a whole wedding party behind your back! Making the trek to the Capitol building was SO worth it!Got in front of some pretty famous cameras this year! I love me some Amy & Jordan and Katelyn James! Cheers to another amazing season with this guy by my side!
