Wedding photographers take thousands upon thousands of photos in a season. Not surprisingly, we get lots of outtakes … and lots of those are of ourselves. This blog post is one of my favorites of the year because it shows how hard we work and also how unglamorous this job can be. We don't take ourselves too seriously around here. :)
"Are you ready? Can I let it go? … Are you ready now?"
Love this girl. Emily joined me for a couple weddings in 2014 (even though 2013 was technically her last season with me).
Photographers should know how to attach boutonnieres. End of story.
This might be my favorite moment from 2014. That time I scoped out a location and then found a dumpster in front of it when it was time to shoot. I moved that dumpster, you guys. Thanks to Jeni for capturing the proof.
My poor second shooters. I put them through the ringer when it comes to testing light. There's lots more where these came from. ;)
Blending in with the wedding party. Ish.
Markie and Caitlin have picked up Emily's knack for acting out the would-be scene. So proud of them.
OK, maybe THIS is my favorite moment from 2014. Tracey's dad, Mark, is the nicest father of the bride ever!
Haha, that one up there on the left makes me laugh. Hi Doug!
I didn't realize how much pointing I did until I looked at these photos. I can be so bossy sometimes.
Nathan is usually a little more reserved when we're not shooting with friends.
Look at Samantha, taking after all my other second shooters. :D
It's official. Caitlin is way too cool for school. Papa-paparazzi!
Sorry, Anthony. I'll give you a plug though: Check out this guy at Blue Tie Cinema! He knows his stuff.
A lot of wedding photography is hurry up and wait. Caitlin waits like a boss.
A little shout out to Matt, Nathan's photobooth assistant! He's the most hardworking and courteous guy you've ever met. We're lucky to call him a friend!
Jeni lights up a room. (And a sidewalk.)
"And this is how you cut the cake."
So thankful for this girl's friendship!
Yes. Yes, you are in my shot.
Like I said, Jeni lights up a room. Everyone loves her, including me!
Hey ladies, remember when it was hailing and we still took portraits outside?! Yeah, I won't ever forget that either. THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME!
And we'll end with a few of my faves from the photobooth ...
From the bottom of my heart, thank you to all of my clients, second shooters and friends that made this year as great as it was. Here's to 2015!
