Wedding Photography Behind the Scenes the 2015 Edition | Jackson Signature Photography

This just might be our most embarrassing blog post of the year. I have gathered over 40 photos from our weddings this year to give you a little look at our wedding photography behind the scenes.

We had a wonderful 2015 wedding season with the most amazing couples. Couples that not only trusted us to capture wonderful moments but to plan and keep their wedding day on time and running smoothly. During those busy wedding days there are a few things that keep us laughing and make us look like we are working. 😉 Enjoy the wedding photography behind the scenes!

Because we scouted out this location prior to the start of the day, we knew it would be a great spot for photos with only 5 minutes before we had to leave.

You wouldn’t know it, but I specifically bought a grip for the bottom of my camera so I wouldn’t have to put my arm up in the air like a silly person.

One thing we don’t get to do often enough is work with videographers. We love to, but they seem to be the last vendor booked and the first one to be crossed off the list. They make the day fun too!

We even take time for a few selfies if we can on a wedding day. The mirror is our preferred foreground.

Long ceremony selfie. Sometime when church has to count for a wedding AND Sunday service, things can get a little lengthy. An hour and 45 minutes later there was a new Mr & Mrs.

So before photos with the bridesmaids, we let them know how to hold their bouquets and relate it to walking down the isle. We call what Aaron is doing the nervous bridesmaid. If you have ever watched hundreds of bridesmaids walk down the isle, you can see who is most nervous by how high her bouquet is being held.

Falling asleep ehh?

Then there are the silly setups. This is a small table with a shoebox lid, a photo frame and then the veil and jewelry on top. All this to achieve the photo below this one…

#weddingdaygoals, photos with clean backgrounds. I am OCD so when I photograph, I try and be careful to keep the background clear and story telling. However, the behind the scenes are a different story.

A few extra behind the scenes stores…

  • If one of your groomsmen’s dress shirts doesn’t arrive in the right color, Aaron will share his dress shirt.
  • Don’t have anywhere to change or get ready? Don’t worry we have a tent for that.
  • If someone forgets a belt, Aaron will share his.
  • Forgot how to lace the wedding dress? Don’t worry I can do that.
  • If there is an emergency, the Oops Bag has the fix.
  • There are always about 30 umbrellas in the back of our car. I am pretty sure my mechanic thinks I have an umbrella obsession.
  • I can whip up a boutonnière in the pinch.
  • Not to worry anymore, I can plan catering, florist, decor designer and planner all at once. Oh yeah, and wedding photographer too.
