Behind The Scenes
Today is the final installment of the Best of 2012 blog post series and it's pretty much my favorite and most hated post of all year! Today we go behind the scenes with ME as I photographed weddings over this past year! The good, the bad, and the not so put together! But hey that's the life of a wedding photographer! A sweaty, swollen feet, runny makeup, doing what I love best, kind of life! So I might not look the best, heck some of my clothing choices were pretty questionable as well, but these pictures are are a reminder to me that I simply love what I do and love the people I get to work with! So sit back and enjoy the hilarity that is me doing what I love. Sweaty, runny makeup and all!
Working on my karate moves.Outta my way, there's a Bride coming!Trying to block an unruly photo booth assistant with my bum during the ceremony..."See Ryna, this is why this veil is so amazingly awesome..." "Ooohh."Some more karate moves.I'm always walking through Coco's shot...Hiding in bushes was a common theme this year!Not only am I a professional wedding photographer, I'm a professional help you get in your dress photographer too!David of Epic Filmmakers and I ruining our backs for the shot!I have no idea about that photo on the left! A little too excited for the reception to start?What pregnant photographers shouldn't do : STAND ON THINGS!"Just one more shot!" I'm such a liar.When your dress doesn't have pockets you must get creative!By far the WORST picture taken of my all year! But I still love it! Bwahahaha!Are you ready for it?!Standing in Coco's shot again!Coco, why you stand behind the cake?Practicing my jazz hands while giving directions during a First Look.Oh don't pay any attention to me!By FAR the craziest hair picture of 2012!! Y'all know that I have crazy hair, but this picture, well it's epic hair worthy.Got to stay hydrated!Coco, why won't my pocket wizards work?!If I move REALLY slowly and quietly, maybe they won't notice me..."Hey guys! Can I join your super private moment during the First Look?!"Gotcha!More bushes and some confusion over light stands...Coco has to stay hydrated too!I like to photographer ghosts?Chatting it up with the grandma's is my favorite part of the day!Competing with the paparazzi.And I'll end on this picture, the last picture of my last wedding of 2012. What an unbelievable year, thank you to everyone who made it all possible!!
