Behind the Scenes: 2018 Wedding + Portrait Photography

My second year of flying solo at weddings was in a way my first, because this summer the dynamic duo of A and Z had no need to join me at receptions. Being left to my own devices worked out just fine, albeit photos of me looking awesome while doing my job are now incredibly hard to come by! 😂

I did my best to be creative in this, the annual Proof That I Was There.

My first wedding after switching to Sony, and I was absolutely delighted with my much smaller and lighter kit. I didn’t even mind having to do a mid-day charge break during a quiet moment.

Because of logistics, I don’t always get to hang in the hotel pools. When I do, it feels like winning the lottery.

Remember that one week in October when you could get by with a light jacket and it felt like fall? That was nice.
