Behind the Scenes 2017

Adventures, Wedding

What it takes to make the magic

Oh friends, this may be one of the most hilarious posts we’ve shared..simply because it’s our first annual Behind the Scenes post!  We’ve scoured through all of our weddings & sessions from 2017 to find the best of the best of our craziness. We had the BEST year! Looking back through these photos make our hearts full of joy.   Together we celebrated and captured so many moments for our favorite clients in the world!  Grab some coffee, snuggle in and enjoy the giggles, friends!

Starting off strong…because apparently, we love running to grab the perfect shot…or to avoid being in it!001BTS with Bret and Brandie.jpg

Finding the perfect ‘location’ and perfect ‘lighting’ takes lots of testing.  SO MUCH TESTING. And so much awkwardness.
