I first want to start off by saying thank you for your patience and understanding during this transition. I know that things have been quite, but we have a lot up our sleeves and can’t wait to get going on full speed ahead after the Holidays! We have a NEW brand and we’re in the process of moving our website (jessiandzach.com) and our blog over. It’s so exciting!! Well, to get us back into the swing of things we wanted to share a little behind the scenes look into our last wedding season. Hopefully you’ll get a few laughs out of this post… I know that we laugh until we cry when we sit down to go through the wedding images the day after!
Zach and I always arrive early to a wedding. We take that time to get our gear together, our minds in the game, and to scout a few locations that we think will work in a few different lighting scenarios. This usually leads to a mini photo shoot of each other 😉
He also happens to be the best darn helper. Like EVER and this year I finally got the proof… he helps hang the dress, he’s my light tester, and of course so much more (my favorite has yet to come). Seems like it should be an easy task right? It’s definitely not. It can actually be a struggle and some times we have to rock climb a little to get it just right!
This was one of the coolest ceremonies! There was a huge group of deer just meandering through the backdrop… Della Terra Mountain Chateau is so magical!
You would think lining up to send off the bride and groom would be simple, but most often the lines are uneven and too far apart so I make a quick run through asking people to squeeze together and the jokes that come from the guest during this time ALWAYS crack me up!
And here it is ladies and gents… the main reason why I just adore this man. He’s so freaking sweet and thoughtful. He’s there to shoot yes, but he always takes such good care of our couples. While I’m moving them from one location to another or posing them or finding the next spot with great light, he’s there to offer water and yes on occasion brings them a tray of food!
Hey look another test shot haha can you tell as the day goes on that he gets tired of me asking him to step in or maybe its because he hates attention and knows its all on him now 😉 haha I might get a little joy out of making him do this!
SEE! So unflattering, but hilarious. I couldn’t even guess as to what was actually happening… I’d like to think I’m saying, “Hey get over here and let’s dance.” But in reality it was probably, “I’ll be stationed here when the bride and groom are announced.” Or maybe it was pay back for getting him looking like Sasquatch hahaha
