Blogging may have slowed down over here these days, but I always try to make sure that this post gets up each year! Behind the scenes!!! It’s so fun to see what it looks like behind all the beautiful weddings you guys see me sharing! It’s generally not very glamorous on the other side of the camera! Bad hair, awkward posing instructions, very unattractive faces and a few serious cases of RBF!
Last year’s behind the scenes post was neat because you got to see my belly grow as the year went on! This year you just get to see my hairline recede. #postpartum! This was my first wedding season as a mom and boy, was it a new experience! Finding time to pump throughout the day when you generally can barely find time to go to the bathroom was certainly a challenge! Not to mention the actual missing my baby while I’m gone!
That being said, my 2019 wedding season was still as amazing as ever! Amazing couples, beautiful venues and lot’s of awesome vendors that I got to work alongside! Looking through all these photos give me all the feels as I relive these sweet wedding days! They also make me cringe a little bit as I have yet to find a flattering behind the scenes picture of myself!
So once again, I’m compiling a collection of these embarrassing horrid photos of myself doing my thang on wedding days for the world wide web to enjoy! Shooting weddings is hard work, y’all! But I still love it! There’s really nothing like being a part of such a special day in people’s lives! Shoutout to my second shooters for all the pics! Brooke, Franzi, Mallorie, Ashley, Bri and Sarah! Y’all are the best!
Avenue 42 keeping Janelle looking fresh!
That’s some serious side eye!
2018 vs 2019 in the same spot of King Family Vineyards! So crazy!
Scratch my back…
And I’ll scratch yours!
My super professional thinking face!
Also, some equally professional posing instructions!
Lot’s of pointing
Wow, real cute.
Got to give a shout out to my Rothys flats! Comfy, cute and MACHINE WASHABLE, y’all! Yes, you need a pair! The point is my favorite! Get $20 off with my referral link!
Man, I missed being able to do this when I was pregnant!
More often than not, I help with dressing the bride then pose mom/MOH for a faking shot!
Too bad no one was fixing my hair…
My second shooters are expert veil tossers!
We had lots of long veils to play with this year!
And this happens about half the time. Oops!
Yep, this looks like a good idea…
The evil eye is alive and well!
Good thing I’m on the other side of the camera…
All wedding photographers know this face too well. The ‘we’re running behind schedule, but I’m trying to keep my cool’ face!
Love working with the Herrintons!
Still can’t believe I got to shoot at Boone Hall in Charleston this year!
Fluffing some air under the dress to cool her off!
Pippin, you are stunning!
Some first look demonstrations.
That’s a wrap! Hope my brides still want this hot mess shooting their weddings! haha!
