Behind the Scenes :: 2016 :: Something Blue Wedding Photography

Ok seriously the yearly blooper reel is by far my favorite post every season, but the behind-the-scenes is my next favorite! Most people have no clue whats going on during most a of a wedding day from the photographers perspective. Some of these are hilarious moments (during a 12 hour day we just need to amuse ourselves sometimes), some funny things happening with other vendors, and at the end there will even be some cell phone shots that I had to throw in just for fun!I can’t say enough how much I love my job! My 2nd shooters are like my 2nd family and I can’t imagine these weddings without them right next to me, having a blast! Thank you to the whole SB crew for yet another amazing season! xo
