On a wedding day we often snap a few behind the scenes photos while we're working. Last year's blog post was hugely popular & I realised that these photos are a way to give a little insight into our job as photographers and how much fun we have.
2016 has seen us shoot so many awesome weddings & we actually still have one more wedding left to look forward to this year, just after Christmas! We've made heaps of amazing friends along the way & going through these BTS photos brings back all the memories of these weddings. I can't thank our past, present and future clients enough for being the reason I get to do what I love for a living. 😘
And now I present to you: 2016 Behind-The-Scenes...complete with plenty of awkwardness, bad facials, terrible posture and a year's worth of fun!
Matt: best second shooter and partner in crime a girl could wish for!
He makes a superb umbrella holder...
And a smooth veil holder.
He let's me use him as a model to test the light.
And Matt will just love that I included this bouquet shot on the blog!
In all seriousness though, I believe this guy is the secret to our success. He's an incredibly supportive husband & business partner, he takes awesome photos, he's great with people and I love spending wedding days working alongside him.
Besides Matt, I actually employ a whole team of assistant photographers too! This is some of my crew here.
This next series taken by Matt shall be entitled "The back of Heidi's head".
We've been a part of a few styled shoots, each of them put together by incredible teams of creatives!
I find it amusing some of the positions and stances I find myself in when taking photos.
For a short girl I spend a lot of time trying to be even shorter! And what is with crossing my legs?!
I do love my handy dandy ladder!
Barefoot shooting. Yip it's a thing.
At the start of the year Matt & I began a wee game of who can capture the worst photo of one another's facial expressions (it's gruesome!). Let's start with the nicer ones first...
Unfortunately I think Matt takes out top prize with this stunner of me 😩. I can't quite believe I'm even sharing it!
We also love to photobomb each other's shot occasionally.
Speaking of photobombers, the 2016 award definitely goes to Mark. For someone who told me he's not keen on photos - he sure ended up featuring in a lot...
Sometimes we just hold our cameras and stand around. And don't even ask what Matt is doing in that hut...😂
Other things you might find us doing on a wedding day include playing with the dog.
Matt the photographer / mechanic fixing the wedding car.
Me getting helicopter rides, (this is a slight sore point for Matt).
Even featuring in a photo or two with the guests - especially when the 'guest' is family!
I love this photo right here (thank you Debbie!). Mel you're stunning my friend!
Okay...back to us actually doing our job as photographers 😜.
Surely by now you've worked out that I have a favourite dress...?!
The concentration face.
Getting the details just right.
A massive thank you to all the couples, bridal parties, families and friends who have been a part of our journey this year. So many beautiful weddings, new friendships and good memories! xxx
