2014 Behind The Scenes

1/02/15

It’s crazy that we’re already into the SECOND day of 2015! New years always come around so quickly, and I can never get all of my recapping and goal-setting done before the 1st. But, as per usual, I enjoy taking the month of January to continue looking back on the accomplishments of the previous year, and taking my time to really cast my vision for the New Year. So, that’s what I’ll be doing the next couple weeks!

Today, I thought it would be fitting to show some behind-the-scenes shots from this past year. Truthfully, I never think to take shots like this during a wedding day, so I’m grateful for 2nd shooters who do, as it’s always fun to see a few glimpses of me doing what I love.

It’s always great to be able to use 2nd shooters for test shots when looking for portrait and getting ready locations…and these two model well. ;)

Sometimes you just gotta scout locations WHILE talking to the bride.

2014 really was a fantastic year, with SO many wonderful weddings. A huge, huge thank you to everyone who assisted or 2nd shot for me at one or more weddings: Kaytee, Lauryn, Bradley, Jen, Hollie, Laura, and Hannah. I couldn’t have done it without you!

And just for fun, here are a few Instagram behind-the-scenes, as well! Lovvved getting to work with some of my favorite vendor friends on some beautiful styled shoots, and can’t wait to do more of that this year! Shout out to Amelia & Kelsey of Tart Event Co, Janie Medley, the ladies of Elle Style Studio, Paisley & Jade, Caroline of PoshPR, the ladies at Tiffany’s Bridal and Fete Studio, to name a few.

    So fun! Just curious… What gear are you using? What’s your favorite wedding gear? Body, lens, etc…

    @Kendal – I shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III as my main camera, and use a plethora of lenses (mostly primes) for different aspects of the wedding day. For portraits and details I tend to use my 35 and 85 most, with occasional use from my 100 macro and my 50 mm, and for ceremonies the 70-200 IS L. I use all Canon professional L lenses. Hope that helps!
