Behind the Scenes | 2016

This is the first Behind the Scenes post I've done in 9 years of business but that's because I'm typically rockin' a wedding day solo.  Thanks to my friend Alicia and a couple weddings we photographed together this year, I have a few behind the scenes images to share!  Thanks Alicia! :)  

A few things that are always consistent when I shoot a wedding and some of the gear that I use:  
  1. I always wear a black dress to shoot in on a wedding day weather it's 100 degrees or 30.  These two fabulous weddings were in June and December and just that.  
  2. Almost all the dresses I wear on wedding days are from eShakti because they have POCKETS and you can customize the dresses to be a longer length, longer sleeve, higher neckline.  For a tall gal like me, these things are so important.  I also always wear athletic shorts under my dresses because... crouching.  
  3. I purchased a Holdfast camera strap back in 2014 and it has been a lifesaver the last 2 years.  It really helps with distributing the weight of 2 camera bodies + lenses + flashes.  
  4. I always have my hair pulled into a bun and out of my face when I'm shooting.  Really, it's always pulled back in a bun.  My hair tends to just get in the way.  
  5. My Shootsac Lens Bag is also a must have on any shooting day, and I have purchased two since 2009.  I also have an assortment of colorful covers but tend to forget to even change them.  The yellow one has been on all year.  
  6. Sometimes I press the camera shutter with my right middle finger instead of my right pointer finger...  I don't know why I do this.  It's something I've picked up over the years, and I promise you I'm not making any crude gestures your way if you see this happen!
  7. I freakin love my job and am almost always smiling.  Especially from behind the camera :)
