2017 Behind the Scenes of a Wedding Photographer
2017 Wedding Photographer Behind The Scenes
I cant wait to show you my 2017 Wedding Photographer Behind The Scene photos, and I do think I’ll do a “Best Of” of “Faves of 2017”, but before I do, I want to share with you what this year actually looked like for me.
Folks. This was a crazy year. I have never cried so much and laughed so hard and Loved with all my being as I did this year.
Jan – Broken Foot – 3 months of recovery, and non-weight bearing life.
April – Started Physio Therapy. My baby turned One. He took his first steps before I took mine.
May – Breaks foot again; wedding season begins. Trip to Evansville Indiana. I started to sink into a depression at this point.
June – My birthday and anniversary month spent on crutches. But at least I got to go to Nashville to see one of my besties and brother from another mother!
July – Back on my feet end of July, shot my first wedding without crutches (But I did use them off and on)
August – still not walking great, starts physio moves to the country in West Grey Ontario – between Hanover and Durham. You’ll have to google that, its the middle of nowhere and I LOVE it! Shot my first Home Birth – and I’m in love with this niche!
Sept – Home school starts, and BUSY wedding month.
Oct – Another busy wedding month, last wedding of my year, and my Daughter’s Brittany’s wedding (I really dont like the phrase step daughter, but I know you’re all thinking Im too young to have a daughter who’s getting married, so for anyone wondering – she’s my ex’s daughter and she and I have a wonderful relationship).
Nov – Lets get editing! And Album Designing! I wanted everyone to have their photos and products before Christmas!
Dec – Up to my eye balls in 2018 inquiries, album packaging, more album designing, print orders, and then R&R. I hustled all year – despite injury, illness and the roller coaster it was – We Did IT! And it was a BLAST!
As I write this from my hotel in Washington State, I really am in a place of reflection, on what I feel I really excelled at this year and where I’m going to make some changes for 2018.
A HUGE Thanks to all my couples and boudie babes who enhanced my life. I truly love what I do because of you. We bonded, became friends, and that’s the number 1 perk of the job. You let me into your lives, let me photograph your awesomeness, and I am eternally grateful.
A huge thanks and hugs to my Assistant Jess, and my Associate Hyla, and my Prime & Second shooters BJ, Kristin, Maranda and Amy & Alex. You gals came through for me in so many ways, and that meant the world to me. Also to my fabulous makeup artist Jordan – for creating magic with me, over and over again this year. I love you girl!
Alas – Here are some #BTS (Behind the Scenes) shots that remind me just how awesome it all was.
This was just a handful that I collected up – but I liked doing this wedding photographer behind the scenes post so I’ll collect more as I go for next year!
