Behind the Scenes – 2020

Behind the Scenes – 2020

Time for some behind the scenes! 2020 was a crazy year but I was lucky enough to still photograph beautiful weddings! I had everything from large outdoor weddings in the summer to very small intimate weddings with just a ceremony in the winter. Some couples decided to wait until next year, a few kept their date to get married but have a huge party planned for later. Then there were the brave couples that stuck with their date, went through plan A, plan B, everything through plan Z to make it happen!  I am so thankful for my couples this year and the other amazing vendors I was lucky enough to work with. Huge shoutout to my second shooters, the wonderful personal attendants, and anyone else who grabbed a behind the scene photo of me this year!

Here are the behind the scenes from 2020!

It feels weird for 2020 to tell people to slide in a little closer, but when it’s an immediate family portrait, you will hear me say “just a little closer” quite a few times!

Here I am waiting for the first kiss photo and I didn’t even realize the two boys in the back were recording for family members!

I typically end every wedding day with a photo of myself with my couple. I managed to only get three this year due to social distancing and mask mandates. Here is one of my first weddings of the year where I took my mask off for a quick photo!

I feel like I look like a ninja in this next photo! A black jumpsuit, with my hair pulled back, and a black mask!

Have you ever wondered what a photographer looks like when there are just minutes left for sunset photos? Time for a quick walk out to the field!

This entire post could have been filled with mask selfies from weddings!

Proof that I don’t wear my black jumpsuit to every wedding!  Sometimes I go for a grey dress and red leggings. Which looks cute until I have to trade out for purple snow boots, a purple jacket, and a blue hat.  But at least I was warm and my mask matched my leggings!

Not the best quality photo, but here is a screenshot from the live stream!  This was the smallest church ceremony I have every photographed. Less than ten people in the pews!

I just love photographing beautiful families!

This bride and groom from this wedding both had names that started with an A.  The groom made a giant sign that said A & A!  My second photographer said it was perfect since A is also for Alecs!

This year I also got to second shoot with some amazing photographers! I love watching them work and learning new things.

Not wedding related, but here is as close as I will ever get to being a travel photographer! My husband also does not want to be an Instagram husband!
