January 5, 2017Best of 2016: Weddings!

In years past, I’ve broken down my year-end recaps all nice and neat, with a getting ready post, a portraits post, a wedding party post… this year I have a 10-month-old crawling around my legs so that’s not happening ;) So instead, I’ve thrown all my favorites into one massive post. Hope your fingers are ready for some serious scrolling!

The whole point of this post was to give me another excuse to pitch hiring Lydia to do live ceremony painting. Just kidding. Not really kidding. And no, I get nothing out of promoting her like it’s my 9-5 except the opportunity to creepily stand behind her during your ceremony :)

This year was VEIL CITY. Nothing warms my heart more than setting up a veil shot and then having the bride (or groom!) gasp and say YES! THE VEIL PHOTO!

Free advice that I’ve given before: ALWAYS say yes if your photographer asks if they can steal you for a few minutes and they appear to be freaking out about the placement of the sun. It’s magic time.
