2017 Behind the Scenes

It’s here! One of my favorite posts of the year, a look behind the scenes to get a little taste of a wedding day from my point of view! It’s chaotic, fast-paced, and so incredibly amazing. So without further adieu, here are my most not-so-cute moments from last year! 😉

From fixing veils, hair, boutonnieres, and jackets…

To getting the light just right with my trusty Expodisc. Aka my lifeline.

Working alongside so many awesome wedding professionals…

And the sweetest time alone with my couples!

And all the stunning bridal parties!

Didn’t you know? I’m also a spy the way I hide in the bushes. Or a stalker?

Another year. Another hundred times I almost tripped over my stool.
And ohhh. The gorgeous test shots.

Also I wore this striped dress way. too. much. But it was so comfortable and light for this sweaty pregnant lady!

That one time in Arizona where it poured the entire day! So I stayed in a bubble like a crazy lady to protect my equipment at all costs!

What is rain??

Also what is snow?? #azproblems

Trying not to get trampled on the dance floor, one must casually dance through people.

Talk about a transformation!

One of my favorite memories was surprising two couples on their wedding days to shoot their bridal portraits! One of them was even on my due date, and my associates killed it! But I’m so glad I was able to be there, even for the shortest time!


It was a crazy year for weddings, and I wouldn’t change one thing. Except maybe that striped dress. 🙂
