I debated whether or not to do a Behind-the-Scenes post for 2020. But I’ll be damned if 2020 takes anything else from me! Each behind-the-scenes blog post usually has it’s own unique characteristics. Whether it’s a growing pregnant belly or a receding postpartum hairline, there’s usually something that makes each year unique. For 2020, it’s pretty obvious what makes it different from the rest.
A normal wedding season for me consists of 18-23ish weddings. After having James, I decided to set my max to 10 per year. Granted, that usually turns into 12 or 13. In 2020, I shot FOUR weddings. FOUR. How crazy is that?? So this years behind-the-scenes post is going to lack variety just a smidge.
But that doesn’t mean that these 4 weddings were any less special or that they don’t deserve the same amount of attention! I love showing you guys what wedding days really look like behind the camera! There’s a lot of bossy hand motions, unflattering facial expressions and super cute outfits (insert sarcastic tone here).
So here’s a peek into the amazing and sweet weddings I shot in 2020! If anything, the fact that there were only 4 just made each one that much sweeter and more special! Shout out to my second shooters for these images! Ashley, Dani, Ali and Christy!
This wedding was actually in January, so pre-pandemic! Those were the days! The simple joys of not talking to someone through a mask!
Enter the bossy hand motions.
And flattering facial expressions!
When your second shooter catches your ‘It’s fine. Everything is fine.” face.
Follow me for chic and stylish wedding day outfits!
I mean how adorable is this look?! hahah!
Still have to make time for fun veil shots in the freezing rain!
My second shooters are also lovely test models!And sometimes sassy!
Dani, you crack me up!
You make an excellent groom, Ali!Christy is in the zone!
The secret behind the flowing veil photos!
The students in my bridal details course got to see me shoot bridal details at 3 of these weddings! Seeing me apply the systems I teach them in real life situations really makes it click!
Willing this flower to behave!
I actually have a quick video where I share tips on how to add flowers to flat lays! Click here to watch!
For whatever reason, this not-so-cute white clip was what I decided to grab when leaving the house on multiple occasions! Oops! Note-to-self, grab a cuter clip this year!
It’s easy to see why photographers have such bad ‘hangovers’ the next day. Lot’s of squatting…
And tip toes!
Looking greattttt at the end of a hot wedding day!
Love catching people enjoying the same day slideshow!
With a mask and camera in your face, there’s really not much left to see!
Am I helping to rearrange the donut display or taking a stack for myself? Hmm….
Loved all the awesome vendors I got to work with in 2020!
Can’t miss Jess in the bright pink!
