Business, ourlife

Dec 30, 2019

It’s time for our annual Behind the Scenes blog!!  YAY!!!!! We look forward each year to seeing these posts from our fellow entrepreneur friends and we love sharing ours!  You all get a sneak peek into what our job looks like behind the scenes!!

These moments that we take and sometimes accidentally capture while trying to produce all of these romantic images can be hilarious! We hope this post provides some comic relief for you!!  2019 was so much fun and we are so grateful for all of the wonderful people that we had a chance to meet and capture memories for!! Enjoy these “Behind the Scenes” photos from 2019 and looking back through the past year! You know we love you all because we are sharing some pretty embarrassing ones so please try your best not to judge us!!  LOL We definitely look a little rough in some of these images…we usually do look like a mess after long wedding days and sessions! haha


Chad (the best team member and hubby) is such a good helper!!

Testing out the light!


Getting in a bush for that perfect shot!

He’s the perfect model for testing the light!

I have the ability to give some pretty amazing faces!! You will see that throughout this post!

Chad is an awesome veil fluffer!!


Whatever it takes to get the shot!! I always find him climbing something!


Taking some product photos for Bellafina Chocolates!

See what I mean about faces!


And the positions I get in just to take the shot!

Getting creative…even if it means barely hanging on to the side of the porch!

Usually, I am the one in the middle of the road..but not this time. Don’t worry…there wasn’t any traffic! Lol


Awesome model!

Always testing that awesome light!

I don’t have a clue what happened here…but I had to share! LOL

In May we had a gorgeous styled shoot at The Waterstone!! Rebecca from Edwards Photography shot with us!!

I’m not sure what is on the back of my dress here.  No doubt from getting on the ground to get the perfect angle!

Kind of creepy Chad
