Behind the Scenes | 2019

Just for fun

January 3, 2020

It’s time for one of my favorite posts of the year! I started this 4 years ago and it has become one of my favorite posts! I love showing y’all some behind the scenes of what goes on with MMP on a wedding day. This post will include some flattering and not-so-flattering pictures of yours truly. I am so thankful to my amazing team for capturing these fun pictures to give you a little glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes! I shot a couple of weddings on my own this year, so I have some of them that weren’t covered with behind the scenes shots, but I have a good bit to share!

I like to laugh at myself, so here I go sharing a ton of silly and ugly shots my second shooters have captured over the year! I’ve noticed I wore the same couple of dresses at each of my weddings this year! So while it might look like the same wedding, it’s different! Haha! Thanks to Ben, Evie, and Audrey for all of my fun shots!

Lots of styling detail shots over the year (and years). I love getting to do this for my brides as it’s one of my favorite things to take pictures of on the day! Caught me red handed!

Always checking our lighting, especially at ceremony and reception locations! Haha- sorry, Sarah! I had to include this one! Sometimes I’ll make a silly face while we test our lighting And Ben just looks at me And I make my team hold hands as a sample behind the door “First Look.” All for lighting purposes of course!
Helping my brides get ready!

 The ever constant dress and veil fluffing! I promise I’m not looking up Teresa’s dress!
Giving directions on what to do (aka being bossy, but not really!)
Checking back of camera for correct lighting settings

Sweet moments with my girls

Always dancing and acting a fool!

Getting caught making silly/awkward faces!  Find me in the crowd with my ugly face!

 Lots of veil action!

And just some behind the scenes while taking pictures!  Here’s my “favorite” of the year! A cute butt shot of me! If you look, you can see where my pants split earlier in the day and Amber’s mom had to help pin my pants closed up otherwise you would have seen my underwear all day! Yep! That totally happened! Showing some back of camera action!
Walking around with my couples to get from location to location 

Sometimes we get in the background (or foreground) of each other’s pictures!  Run, Ben, run!
And now for my favorite part of the post! I love showing the behind the scenes of what we were doing and the other side of how the picture turned out!  I love this shot, Ben!
