This was an incredible year for us. I have a whole blog post coming dedicated to this amazing year. However, today I share the behind the scenes of 2016. This is probably one of my favorite kinds of post to do. They are hilarious! They also bring us back to these weddings that seem like forever ago! Luke & I get so caught up in the day that we easily forget all that the day entails. It is always fun to go back and look at these pictures and laugh at ourselves.
So I hope you enjoy a look at what it looks like working with Luke & Ash and some of our favorite vendors! We invite you to laugh along with us as we dive into the behind the scenes of 2016! This post is extra long but oh so worth it!
First Up… Sometimes we do instead like to use our iPhones…
Ceremony finished… Now its time for business with the Family Formals!
I like to think I am the dog whisperer.
Luke is so bossy!
Loved working with this crew!
Definitely committed to her work!
Why yes I will take a selfie with you… Now to slay this exit!
Bossing around the bridal party!
Where is Luke?
Do I look good?
Quit playing around… or I’ll hit you in your other eye! ( His eye swelled up for no reason during the wedding! I joked around that I beat him up for not listening to me.)
Luke is that you that stinks???
I like to think they were cheering me on in the background!
Emily was such a great cheerleader and model for me!
I also bossed Emily around a little too much…. ” Get in that corner and don’t move! ”
Am I out of the frame?
Our first Indian Wedding wouldn’t have been a success without these amazing and dedicated peeps!
Do you see Luke? We had to wait for these tourist to finish their pose before we could take our picture of our couple!
I am questioning Luke’s choice of socks and how many guys it took to hang up this dress.
Luke really got in touch with his feminine side with this one.
You want me to drink what???
How many photographers do you see??
What a gentleman
Luke is envious of Greg’s gear
I want you to practice your first look reaction with me Jon.
I need you to step out of the picture. The bride doesn’t know it but I am supposed to be in the bridal party.
Back it up girl… I got ya.
This is what dreams are made of.
Oh Brooke… I love you… Don’t kill me for this!
Did he really just do that???
Alright Laurel… Are you ready to marry this man?? You can still run. We have a getaway car for you just in case!
We always will have your best interest in mind.
Hold it… Hold it…
Best Bridal Party EVER!!! Loved dancing with them!
Sometimes I get a little out of hand… Especially when I work with these girls.
Why is he watching me???
I just want to be the center of attention.
Luke has the best lighting models!
Austin & Jessie… I want you to feel the moment.
Brianna showing them how to make a crazy face.
Luke quit playing around and get inside.
Loved this session!
Professional Cherry Blossom Shaker.
Even the Mighty Thor made an appearance.
Another Photo Bomb.
These veils are great for days where there are lots of mosquitoes!
We like to think we are professional models for ONA and Kelly Moore. Loved our time with Ashleigh…. She was such a great assistant and now that she is gone I fear for my life. You see she would hold down chairs that I stood on, make sure I didn’t fall in the water, and just had my back.
The Beasley Kids definitely had a great year as well! The more and more we bring them along the more and more I realize that we are doing the right thing. They get to be apart of so many adventures. They get to see mommy and daddy work and they also make great assistants!
