It’s crazy to me that this is our THIRD “working at work” or “Behind The Scenes” end of the year blog post we’ve done! The years are flying by and all have been filled with more and more amazing faces, assistants, interns and clients. I look forward to putting this post together each year. These are shots my second shooters + assistants and I have captured while shooting weddings and portrait sessions. Some may be us testing out our lighting, a photo location, or just being silly cause that’s just how we roll. ha ha. It’s always so fun to look back and see what was happening on the OTHER side of the camera to produce some of the beautiful images you’ve seen us share and post. It’s a good mix of iPhone + our professional camera’s shots so bare with us with the quality.
This year has been FILLED to the brim with goodness. I got engaged over last December (12.19.13 to be exact), hired my first employee Tori who is stinkin’ awesome, took on 2 interns Julia and Katherine, planned a wedding, had some aspiring photographers shadow me for the day, GOT MARRIED, got a puppy, photographed three of my closest friends weddings, and became a featured photographer on The Knot.. and that’s just naming a few of the memories 2014 held. God tuaght me so much this year and I am forever grateful for the doors He continually opens for us and this business. It was a year of trial and error, learning, growing, loving, and so much more. One of my favorite memories from this year was planning my own wedding while photographing 1-2 weddings every weekend! I am already a super indecisive person, so experiencing so many different ideas and styles of all of these amazing weddings was not an easy task. But it also made it so fun for me to connect with my brides on a newer level that I never truly understood until I was a bride-to-be myself. You can imagine how many iPhone shots/texts my poor fiance had to put up with every time I would get a new idea from the wedding that I was photographing. ha!
Thank you times a billion to every person who made this year possible, for helping me keep my sanity during the last few months leading up to my wedding, and for all of the patience and help I received while I moved into a new home, became a wife and.. got a puppy! From second shooters, assistants, editors, interns, friends, family, and clients (and my mom for letting me borrow your cool antique blankets and chairs for props). You are truly appreciated and made 2014 so great. We have some super exciting things happening in 2015 for our brand + team and we can’t wait to reveal it all to you super soon!
*These photos are starting at Winter of 2013 all the way through to Winter of 2014. I also attached some of my wedding photos at the very end! Compliments of Jeremiah and Rachel Photography.
Happy New Years!!!
