Behind the Scenes 2012

This year absolutely flew by! As always, I lucked out with amazing, warm and fun clients who I am so grateful to! Thank you so much to all the people who second shot for me this year, foremost being my main second shooter, Carley Bortolin who shot 11 weddings with me this summer! She is amazing and I appreciate her skill, positivity and humour so much on weddings days!

Here are a few snapshots from behind the scenes. The days go fast but we manage to snag a few every year! All the shots of me were shot by Carley, unless it says otherwise. : )


It’s always fun seeing the creative ways that guests get to find their tables. This one below was cute. It said something along the lines of, “We’ve found our match, now you find yours!” (with our table number written on the back of each match-flag).Rain or shine, Carley is always all sunshine! Love this girl!I love when a basic group shot like this one (below left) quickly escalates into something unexpected and great (like below, right).I get to work with some super fun DJ’s! Here’s Kalani, AKA The Flyin’ Hawaiian, below (far left) letting a groomsman take a shot at DJ-ing.Another favourite DJ, Jeff Hay (DJ Haymaker)… always camera ready. haha.Sometimes there are celebrity guests at the weddings. No big deal.Carley: “I’m a ‘flasher’, get it!?”Thanks to Haisman Photography who took this shot of me at an awesome wedding I photographed in Alaska this past spring! Chatting up the head table. So many fantastic wedding-parties this year!Carley and I often get some pretty cute guests at our table too!Doin’ my thing.When this groomsman realized his presence would make this flying-V shot uneven, he gave himself the axe and stood in a corner. Lol. I wish more people did photo-bombs. They never cease to entertain me.I love hunting through props when weddings have a photo booth set up. I was pretty excited about this Star Wars helmet, as you can see.

Thanks again to everyone I worked with this year! I met so many wonderful people and have a ton of awesome memories to show for it! Thank you to all the people who have checked out my work along the way, as well. You all rock!
