Behind-the-Scenes of 2009!

I’ll let you in on a secret: when we go to the weddings we cover we take many, many pictures. Shots of the wedding, of course, but once in a while we’ll also grab a quick shot or two of each other. We just can’t resist taking a photo if one of us looks particularly cute. Or especially funny. Or just plain ridiculous! :)

So here are some photos of us in action and behind-the-scene shots from last year. The good, the bad, and the funny:

The hardest thing during this shoot was not not to get my gear completely soaked:

Jason - It’s so nice to see the behind the scenes. It seems that we, as photographers, don’t often have a record of it and just forget to do this. Way to go – awesome images!

It looks like you guys work quickly and keep it relaxed, which is probably the most important talent a wedding photographer can have.

Nice work!
