Today I want to share a less glamorous part of my job: behind the scenes. I have to admit, on wedding day… I WORK. I sweat, I run, I sometimes trip and fall. But I will pretty much go to any lengths to get the perfect images for my couples. Every year, I create a folder of behind the scenes images from my second shooters. This year, I decided to share some of my favorites. While I don’t look my most glamorous on the job, you can see the joy my work brings me in almost every image.
A lot of people ask me why I planned a 2 week road trip around Texas. Well, every year, I make a list of wedding venues I want to photograph all around the world... It just so happened that a large majority of those happen to be in Texas! Go figure! I got to shoot at 3 stunning venues that I've been dreaming about forever and eat all the Tex-Mex I could stomach. Below is my Texas road trip itinerary for inquiring minds!
When I first opened Dogwood Lane, I never dreamed that I would be posing in the space! Once a year, Ben and I have our photos taken together. Sometimes it’s during Christmas, sometimes it’s an anniversary session.. but this year, I’ve been really inspired by boudoir. I wanted to start offering couple’s boudoir sessions but before I did, I needed to feel what it’s like to be on the other side of the camera. After getting married, I undoubtedly became a better wedding photographer. The same rule applies to boudoir!
