Here comes the blog that I know you all love each year! The Behind The Scenes blog for 2018! We certainly aren't the best at taking behind the scenes images because we are always so busy on wedding days but we have a few for you all! Get a glimpse into what it's like behind the scenes as a wedding photographer below!
We really like making faces while we are testing the light and getting things set up!
I'm always there to make sure you look your best!
Again, a lot more faces....
