Hopefully I am not the only one thinks that the blooper at the end of movie are one of the best parts. There is something so funny about seeing all of the things that go on behind the camera. Well, consider this my blooper reel!

What you don’t see behind the camera, is the the true heart behind what I do. I really love my couples, and will do (almost) whatever it takes to get the perfect shot. Wether it is . More than just a photographer, I take the role of Bonus Bridesmaid very seriously- this often means bustling the dress, climbing on the furniture to get the right shot, hoping on the dance floor when the cotton-eyed-joe comes on (unfortunately also resulting in some very embarrassing photographs!)

Before I show you any of these images, need to take a moment to thank my seconds shooters, Lindsey and Victoria, not only for taking these images, but also being such all around awesome second shooters! Wedding days can be long days. Thank you both for  always having a great attitude and for loving my couples as much as I do.

Find them both on instagram:

Will do basically anything to get the shot. Not pictured here? The small rock  hiding in the ivy that I was precariously balanced on, to keep from falling down the cliff and into the bay- but do not worry, I got the photo.

In college, I was so lucky to be apart of Zeta Tau Alpha. Not only was Maddy the president of my chapter, but three of her bridal part where my sisters- so I got to hop in a photo with them!

Right before the cake cutting, a large bug was spotted on the wall, but Ricky took care of it, no problem.
