2016 Behind the Scenes

Filed in: Uncategorized

I’ve always wanted to put together a year end Behind the Scenes post, but in year’s past we didn’t have the content to justify one. 2016 was a game changer though, not only did we double our wedding bookings, we were more comfortable in our roles to document each other BTS.

I do know I will be setting aside our BTS photos throughout the year, because hunting them down today was a pain in the you-know-what. However, it gave me a moment to really walk down memory lane, but I definitely let out an exhausted sigh or two — just for good measure.

2016 will go down as a year of tremendous growth in every sense of the word, but we survived and because of this last year I am entering 2017 with deepened knowledge and much more confidence. Which is an awesome feeling to have.

That being said, here is a little glimpse into what went down in 2016 behind the scenes:

Daniel fixed many a dress, threw many a veil and herded brides and bridesmaids.

There was that one time I took vodka shots with a groom.

We handled mini crisis’s in order to keep the wedding day on track and everyone’s stress levels down. (The mother of the bride is crying over the card, and is unaware I’m handling a ‘situation.’)

We took a lot of selfies

Don’t worry, we have plenty of ‘typical’ BTS wedding photographer shots.

Daniel had plenty of “Daniel” moments. He cannot be contained.

I was even reunited with my middle school best friends for the first time SINCE middle school.

While most of our behind the scenes photos are wedding days, since I usually fly solo for portrait sessions, we did get a few of those in. Most of which, involve the pond in our front yard.

…and finally. Never wear rubber boots into water without socks on. A 8-month pregnant, Meredith, learned this the hard way.

That’s a wrap, friends. Writing this blog post has made me excited thinking about what this coming year’s Behind the Scenes post will look like, so, 2017, let’s do this!

    This is my favorite blog post ever from you. (Stuck in the bathroom at 30,000 feet a close second…) Having followed your journey on social media AND knowing you IRL, (and messaging you "Daniel is holding that boat, isn’t he? He is, isn’t he? AmIRightOrAmIRight??" I have a big love for Two Arrows. I am so glad you have found your happy and that you’re making a living following your passion. Doing it while capturing priceless memories for others is one heck of a bonus, girlie.

    I look forward to following the antics of DaniSquared in the new year.

    Daniel is a superb hair-and-makeup-bag-carrier and pose-teacher. We had SO much fun on our engagement shoot with you two – as evidenced by our behind the scene photos! Can’t wait for the fun and creativity you bring to our wedding.

    I cannot tell you enough how thrilled we are to have you as our partners on our big day. I know documentation (and facilitation) of our wedding is in the best of hands with you two.

EMILY AND GEORGE TIE THE KNOT

We're red lipstick bold, classics to the core, romantics at heart, and that effortless, boyfriend's-button-down-shirt sexy. This would be a great spot for a video background.
