This is one of my favorite posts each year. Our behind the scenes photos show just how much fun we have together and how much we love photographing our awesome clients!
Seriously as I was looking back through photos from the past year, I couldn’t help but notice how many photos there are of me smiling and looking so full of joy! I love that I get to do what I love and I’m so grateful for the people who trust me to photograph them!
I will ALWAYS eat cake/cupcakes/desserts when they are available.
Mitchel is always glad to be a model!
Mr. Fix-it intently working on a lightstand
When photographing details, it usually looks like a tornado came through whatever area I’m working in. Alllll the creative energies.
This is what it looks like when I’m setting up a ring shot!
And the final product!
Always have to get a photo of the nervous groom before the first look or ceremony - this one was super special as this is my cousin! So much excitement for his wedding day!
I’ll even stop traffic for a great first look spot!
That sweet first look embrace!
I’ll risk having your guests burn my hair just to get the perfect sparkler shots!
Mitchel is a professional dress wrangler and adjuster.
And also a model/stand-in groom for light testing - referring back to his child model days. ;)
I’ll scheme and plan for your surprise proposal. And calm your soon-to-be fiance!
I’ll make sure the ring is in jussstt the right spot.
I love to wow the bride with the back of camera peeks!
And I’ll make funny faces to make the sign-bearer smile!
Mitchel is there for the laughs
You can bet that I’ll make you hold hands during your family session, and you’ll end up genuinely cracking up in the process.
I’ll encourage you to kiss your love during your engagement/couples session.
I’ll teach you how to stand and pose - pop that outer leg!
My specialty is crouching and hiding in shrubbery.
The result of crouching and hiding in shrubbery.
I will ride a little too close to the edge to get the perfect angle!
And then do a dumb little smile when I love how it turned out.
I’d say it’s worth almost falling in the water for this shot!
I will be full of joy (and most assuredly talk with my hands all day) on your wedding day!
Again with the talking with my hands…
I’ll stare as they pick a grasshopper out of your dress. haha!
Yell “hey Katie” and this is probably the look you’ll get.
More squatting for the perfect shot.
And Mitchel will be there with a smile, too…
…and the random yoga poses.
And the final result, after light testing and yoga poses.
And again, squat wherever needed for the perfect shot.
I may stand really awkwardly to get the perfect angle…
The result of the almost-falling-over stance!
And laugh really hard, smile really huge…
I’ll photograph your dress and find fun spots to hang it, while Mitchel camps out and makes sure no one comes around the corner.
I’ll stand on chairs for that extra bit of height.
One of many ring shots from standing on the chair!
And stand on more chairs…
And fluff your dress to make sure it lays just right.
Always watching the Cha Cha slide with a camera within arms reach!
And always getting great shots while looking really fly.
