Here are a few photos from behind the scenes at weddings lately. I am so in love with my job. A wedding day is a lot of hard work and I'm so spent when it's over, but it's so worth it. A wedding ceremony is such a sacred, beautiful thing and I count it a great honor to be allowed into the process of God taking two and making them one. Not only am I a part of such a special day, but I get to use all my creative energy to document it. How awesome! I do not, however, have photos of most of what happens behind the scenes. I don't think you guys want to see me in a t-shirt and yoga pants editing, emailing and balancing my accounts! If you do want to see it, oh well! Haha!
Anyway, this is me...doing what I love! :)
I tell you, who wouldn't want to work with such a good looking guy? I think he's a keeper.
I just had to include this one, not because it's pretty but because it's hilarious! I am clearly practicing my "monkey" look. Just imagine I'm saying "ooo ooo, eee eee, aah aah" and we're all set for a life at the zoo. On the other side of this photo the groom is using his mind powers for his diabolical plan to turn everyone into monkeys, starting with me. Obviously. And now his second victim is about to join me. Muahahaha!!!
Oh you know, I'm just showing the guys how to put their hands in their pockets...because very few people have that skill and all. I'm just smart like that. Haha!
Part of my job description is that I chase runaway flower girls, as well as entertain the rambunctious ones that like to move around a lot. Who knew that years of teaching children's church would prepare me for wedding photography? :)
Talking with my hands, talking with my hands. Everyone I like to talk with my hands.
I'm so thankful to the Lord for the opportunity to serve people in such a meaningful way. My brides and grooms are the most amazing people on the planet and I am so thrilled to know them. I'm humbled to be entrusted with this monumental task. Thank you.
Happy Friday everyone!
