Alright, every year Usbec and I take photos of each other here and there. Sometimes it’s to test the light, sometimes it’s because we know no one else is going to take a photo of us that day, sometimes it’s because Usbec is breaking out his mad dance skills, and every now and then it’s because we’ve caught each other in our most flattering pose yet! So, without further ado here’s a peek behind the scenes of our 2018 season!
We love our job! Despite some of the faces you’re about to see Usbec make, we really, truly love everything about being wedding photographers!
We especially love when our baby boy gets to join us!
We also love wedding cake. Here I’m most likely asking “So, about the cake? Is there plenty for us?
We don’t love racing time. Just ask any of our brides – I work hard to make sure we have the perfect timeline for each wedding day (even though we’re flexible and professional enough to know when that timeline needs to be altered the day of). But we do love racing! Here Usbec is racing to see if he can beat my fast shutter speed! He didn’t win.
He didn’t win here either
We do love photographing the dress! Usbec is a PRO at getting it just right for photos! And we take turns fluffing the dress for portrait time, although I remember Usbec helping with that a lot more when I was pregnant! 😉
Usbec is the BEST at the veil toss though!
Boutineer pinning – that’s my job!
We take turns modeling for each other when we need to test the light
Clearly, Usbec doesn’t love the modeling part…
I, on the other hand, act like it’s my second job!
Here I’m telling Usbec “This won’t work, it’s too bright behind me and too dark in front of me.” Usbec is saying, “I know but just let me get a photo of you.” And I say, “Oh, OK! Let me pose then!”
See, he LOVES modeling!
Every once in a while, he’ll actually smile!
And then sometimes I get really lucky and get an actual POSE!
Because this is a “Behind the Scenes” post, I should probably post a few more of us actually working, right?
“So, guys….where’s the cake??”
Usbec has mad dance skills! Until he realizes I’m photographing him!
And his close up ring photos during the ceremony are the best!
Here I’m probably photographing the cake, counting down the minutes until I get a bite!
I just love my job!
Sometimes he acts like one of the groomsmen, sometimes he sits down on the job…
He always takes the time to set up the shot!
“So, we have this many photos left and then we get cake!!”
And then there’s the times it decides to come a downpour 10 minutes before ceremony start time and Usbec hides away in the shed with the videographers.
We also like to add a little extra fun into a wedding day and play “Where’s Waldo” every now and then.
No big deal, Usbec just trying to outrun the shutter again!
Here I GUARANTEE I’m debating if it’s acceptable to go cut a small slice of cake before the bride walks down the aisle.
Sometimes Usbec poses for me to test the light alone and sometimes he poses with the Groom. Sometimes he does both.
He also loves practicing his ninja moves!
And then we can’t forget how much he loves modeling the hats at the photo booth!
His favorite thing to do at weddings though is probably to take unflattering photos of me!
Using my FBI earpiece to ask the planner if she’s seen the cake.
5 minutes til cake time!
I get Usbec back for all those unflattering photos by being bossy.
Sheree: Discreetly saying get out of my photo.
Usbec: Repeating “Pretend like you don’t see her, pretend like you don’t see her!”
But we always call a truce and get a photo together after the wedding. Most of them are phone photos though.
We LOVE getting to work together and we love getting to meet new couples and serve them together. Our couples are the absolute BEST and it’s because of them that we’re able to show you this fun blog post!
“Sheree, seriously, stop eating the cake!”
“Uh oh, Sheree. There’s no cake at this wedding”
“That’s not even a little bit funny, Usbec.”
No matter how much fun we have during the wedding though, we’re so stinkin excited to get back home to Torin! Can you tell from these photos at the end of the night??
THANK YOU to every single one of our couples this year!! We had the best year ever all because of you! We’re so thankful for each and every one of you!! We can’t wait for 2019!
