2015 Behind The Scenes


January 4, 2016

Even though I’m still kind of in disbelief/denial that the 2015 wedding season is OVER already, I’ve been taking some time lately to reflect on what an amazing year it’s truly been.

Without getting *too* sappy, I just really can’t say enough how grateful I am to do this thing that I love. I photographed my first solo wedding at age fourteen and never could have imagined how that one day would change the course of my life. It seriously fills my heart with so much gratitude to think of the beautiful journey it’s been since. Lots of hard, hard work… but the MOST rewarding. :) Some days it honestly feels surreal to look back and see how far I’ve come and I’ll never truly be able to express my thanks to my family for believing in me, clients for trusting me, and Jesus for blessing my business beyond what I could have ever imagined. And here I said I wasn’t going to get sappy… HA.

Some of you have been following my work since the very start, and some of you are a little newer around here. :) Either way, you play a significant part in my life and I just wish I could teleport across the internet to thank every person who has ever left a sweet comment along the way!! I could hug you all.

Although my job is the GREATEST OF ALL TIME and these were some of the best days of 2015, we photographers do find quite a way of making ourselves look entirely too *glam* in an Instagram feed. Needless to say, seeing this collection of behind the scenes from the last year is rather humbling (“Thaaaat’s what I looked like?!”), but it’s also kinda my favorite.

So whether you’ve ever been curious what a photographer actually looks like on the job, OR you’re just seeking photos of me looking overly happy/bossy/ridiculous… then today is your day. You’ve come to the right place. Without further adieu, I give you… 2015 BEHIND THE SCENES. I’m embarrassed already.

“Ok lovebirds enough PDA, your attention please!”

“Just pretend it’s 75 and sunny, while I stand over here dressed like an eskimo in my nice warm coat.”

Thank you Sarah for laughing at my jokes. Bless you.

Always certain my hair will go up in flames.

The windiest day of the year. Also the day I was most grateful I remembered to wear shorts under my dress.

Looking back now I think perhaps *I* was the one whose hair needed the fixing… SOS.

“It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s… just me.”

Gotta test out the photobooth. For professional reasons. Obvi.

Oh wait Amy you *don’t* want me in your bridal portraits? Ohhhhhh ok.

Not even a pity laugh.

Reception grand entrance test shots… the moment of every wedding day I look awkward without fail because every guest watching thinks the photographer just wants a cute pic of herself. -_-

Tower of Babel moment.

AWH. When your first 2015 bride is a guest at your last 2015 bride’s wedding. Full circle, happy heart.

It’s cool. I never liked these shoes anyway.

“But I thought you guys wanted to spend the day with meeeeee? :(“

Ryan & Renee being cute even when it’s not for a photo. My fave.

“I understand you need some YOU-time, but we really need to be moving on with portraits, guys.”

Realizing now that cardigan kind of looked like a purple cape…

Oh, y’know… just getting in my morning wall-sit workout.

Decided to join Mark & Amanda’s choreographed first dance. I wanted my moment in the spotlight too.

    Hi Caroline, I follow Wendy Zook on Instagram, and when she commented on your workshop I had to take a peek. You are so funny, and a spiritual light (not flash lol) to the photography world. Love your jokes (hey im not paid to say this people), and how you share your heart. I will be following your posts!
