2016: Behind the Scenes
Athens Atlanta Georgia Engagement Wedding Photographer

December 27, 2016

Yay for my second annual “behind the scenes” post!  Last year’s post got such a good reaction that I’ve decided to do it again!  These photos are taken by my second shooter or assistant, and I love them because I literally NEVER know they’re being taken; They’re always quick & candid moments that showcase what it’s like “in the moment” on a wedding day or at an engagement session.  As always, I can’t thank my sweet couples enough for trusting me to join them during some of the most special times in their lives!  And I hope you enjoy getting a behind the scenes peek into what I do!  And stay tuned, because there is a post coming soon highlighting the behind the scenes of my entire team!

Helping when the veil falls out & turning that ring so it’s front and center.

Fixing the hair…

Blotting the bouquet so it doesn’t get the bride wet!

Safely laying out the bride’s train (I love that my brides are brave enough to go outside for photos when it’s 50 degrees and totally wet!)…

Far away with a zoom lens prepared to capture the First Look…

I have no idea what is happening here…

All I remember here is that I said something embarrassing…

And here are some “before and afters” — It’s always fun to see the resulting image that I take…

I love that in the below photo you can see how my second shooter & I are getting different vantage points (she’s in the balcony!)…

And what you see in the end photo isn’t always what it looks like in real life…

I LOVE that my second shooter sometimes captures the moments when I show my couples a “preview” of their photos on the back of my camera.  Always such a joyful moment!

And of course I love jumping in a shot with my brides & grooms!

The best is when you run into PAST brides & grooms at weddings and they all want a photo with you!

Thanks again for an amazing 2016!
