Bloopers and behind the scenes of 2015 Wedding Season

Filed in: Uncategorized

What a fun and exciting year 2015 has been for us! Having a big bump for half of this years wedding season was interesting and we had such great support from all of our couples! I am so glad Paisley was able to party and celebrate until midnight with most weddings at the receptions in my belly!!! Also a huge thank you to our wonderful intern Amie for helping us out this year and taking some amazing photos!!! We are so ready for 2016 we can’t hardly stand it!! Here is our life as wedding photographers the good, the bad, and the ugly….but we wouldn’t change it for anything!!


I have the weirdest way of standing fixing dresses, hair…… really anything!


We have some of the best couples…. and bridesmaids!

We have worked with some amazing vendors this year… are a few we absolutely love!! Wedding coordinators make our life oh so easy but the DJ’s make it so much fun!!! Hair and makeup artists are so amazing, and of course we love capturing our beautiful brides getting even more beautiful thanks to them! 5V2A06825V2A90607Z1A6058


We love working with videographers especially when they bring extra lighting!! We always get asked if extra flash is okay….of course!!!! And we have worked with the sweetest most respectful videographers ever! So very lucky! 7Z1A57767Z1A5841 7Z1A6378 5V2A3837 7Z1A98217Z1A57857Z1A1356 7Z1A0634 7Z1A8954 7Z1A4911 7Z1A4925 And of course we love our intern Amie!! 5V2A5570
