Another year has come to a close which means now it’s time to look behind the scenes of all that has happened in 2019! I cannot believe it’s 2020 and we’re already starting our countdown for another wedding season! I truly believe that each wedding season gets better each year! There are so many exciting things to look forward to for 2020 and we’re just getting started!
I haven’t been the best at posting behind the scenes for blog posts but it’s never too late to start, right? As I look back through these behind the scene images, it reminds me of just how truly honored and grateful I am for each of my clients. They’re trusting me with one of their most important life milestones! I couldn’t be more honored and filled to the brim with love!
One of my favorite things that people assume of photographers is that we’re just that; literally only photographers. But I’m here to show and tell you that we’re so much more than that! We’re there to bustle the dress, fix hair, pin boutonnieres, set the veil, fix pocket squares, etc. I love being able to serve my #krpcouples in more ways than “just being a photographer”.
Lastly, none of this would have been possible without the help of my wonderful second shooters! They are my right-hand girls on a wedding day who also serve me on a wedding day to help things run smoothly. Seriously, I’m so grateful for each one and honored to have them by my side! And also for the behind the scenes images that they grabbed of me! Thank you Olivia, Alyssa and Diane!! So so grateful for you!
Let’s dive into some of my favorite memories and moments from 2019!
getting the hair juuuuust right!
fixing the multiple layers underneath so the train can lay smoothly! Who knew there could be sooo many layers.
one of the many moments of fluffing the train or fixing a veil ;)
taking care of the bride with Joy from Fancy Peacock Events!

just a little friendly competition during the ceremony.. who does it better? Don’t answer that.
setting up a pose that’s easier to do in your head than in real life.. LOL
is it too obvious I’m excited for the cake?
I promise I’m kind when I’m giving posing directions :)

“Hey, you.. move to the left.”
