Behind the Scenes and Bloopers for 2017 Wedding Season

Y’all, get ready to laugh because this has been such a great year not only shooting weddings with my sweetheart but our couples were just soooooo AMAZING! We cannot thank all of you enough for trusting us with your wedding day and allowing us to capture the most special day of your lives!

Rob and I have managed to rock out this years wedding days and man has it been a year. We have come to the year where we have shot well over 100 weddings and we are just so thankful for all of our couples! 8-10 hour weddings days can be very demanding and long, so we obviously have to add in a bit of humor to make the day less stressful and a tad more fun!! 🙂



My favorite veil fluffer of all time!

So thankful for him!

Sometimes he can be a perfectionist just like me and it makes my OCD heart so happy!! 🙂

When the veil goes flying out of Rachel’s hair…. I love Rob helping her put it back in! LOL


Butttttt it was all worth it for the most beautiful shot!

Totally worth it…obsessed with everything beach wedding related!

Hello my name is Amy and I am a perfectionist! Even the smallest sticks have to come off the ground! If there is an eye sore, it’s coming up!

If only I was that OCD about my hair! Hello roots!!

First looks may be our favorite thing EVER!

When the bridal party listens perfectly!!!!

The wind was not our friend here!

Oh how I loved this mama and daddy! They made sure I didnt get run over in Downtown Durham!!

When every detail matters!

Sometimes you look back and you have no idea why you are touching the grooms nose!

Rob definitely missed his calling as a cowboy, but for now he can wear groomsmen’s hats during portraits!

Let’s see if Rob can wrangle together the bridal party….. I would say he does a pretty good job.

Rob doing his thing with the sweetest couple!!! 

Rob always makes sure the groom looks perfect before the first look, such a good second shooter!!

Scouting for first look locations at Barclay Villa. My question is what shoes is the groom wearing if you are holding them Rob??!

He always picks the perfect spots!

When family helps out to make your bridal portraits epic….

And they turn out sooooo epic!

Getting all the pretty light in as much as I can!

I love, love, love location scouting!!!

When you location scouted a couple days before and come back to no tall grass because it had been mowed. I could have cried!

But then I got this…….

and this……

and this…. so I would say it was still a win!


When it’s freezing cold outside but your girl wants to look perfect during her engagement session. Yassssss! Such a rockstar!

I loved shooting both of the Twisdale girls weddings… so thankful for referrals and sisters!

When you photo bomb your husbands photo!

And another……..

And another…….

and again…..

And again…..

And another…… sorry babe!!

Off camera testing at it’s finest!

He was so excited to be shooting at Pinehurst Country Club and took way more photos than he should have. Soooooo I made him delete some. #sorrynotsorry


Trying to beat the rain!

Such a gorgeous backdrop and he nails every shot!

Family portraits can sometimes be a bit CRAYYYYY, and Rob is so great about getting everything going perfectly! And that is the cutest photo bomber ever!!!

Flash testing and seriously wanting to dive into this cake!!!

The most dapper groom and best backdrop…. Wrightsville Beach!


When your heart is so happy to be home! There is nothing like smelling the salt from the ocean while shooting a wedding….. take me back!

All hands on deck!

He pretty much does it all…. maybe I should change our name to Amy & Rob Photography. Bahahaha!

Duke Chapel you have stolen our hearts and Alicia your so gorg!

Sometimes we are called to do more than just shoot weddings! We cut wedding cakes, we direct intoxicated guests holding sparklers, we wrangle bridal parties, we direct time and traffic……but we wouldn’t have it any other way!!

We have the honor of working with the most AMAZING vendors!!!! Gahhhhh so thankful for them!!

Nicole with Vision Events is pretty awesome!! We love her and obviously she has given Jackie something to decide on…. that stance though!

Can you tell cake cutting to us is super important!? 🙂

Sarah with Sweet Sarabelle making everything beautiful…. like always!

Love her!!!! SO grateful to be able to call her one of my besties!!

Sarah doing what she does best!! We love watching her in action!

When you walk into a wedding day knowing you are shooting alongside the best of the best!! We love our sweet friends with Jon Clark Weddings!

Never a dull moment with them!

EVER!! What gets me through a 4 hour reception…. these guys!

I definitely didnt hit the dance floor as much this year, but when ya girl hears the wobble it’s time to get it!

I love when I can join one of my fav wedding coordinators on the dance floor!

Nicole with Vision Events is seriously the cutest!!

We are so excited for our 2018 weddings!! We decided to take less weddings next year to focus on our family and to better serve and love on our couples! We hope everyone has a wonderful holiday season and a Merry Christmas!
