I can hardly believe that Christmas is already over and that 2016 is just around the corner! We’ve had an aaamazing 2015 wedding season, all thanks to our wonderful couples! Each and every one of them are dear to our hearts and being able to serve them is truly a joy.
To close out this wedding season, Timothy and I wanted to give you a sneak-peek into what is going on behind the scenes at Alina Thomas Photography during a typical wedding day. Without further ado, here are some of our 2015 behind the scenes photos!
But first, I want to introduce you to my handsome second shooter…
…who on occasion will also make sure no bugs are climbing up my bride’s dress.
Sometimes I believe that keeping both feet on the ground while shooting is boring, so I try to make it more interesting… everyone, shooting one legged is the new way to go :)
So much so, that even Timothy is trying out my new method.
I’ll sometimes pretend to be a guest with a fancy camera…
…while Timothy will pretend to be a real model.
And he’s always so excited to be my subject for test shots :)
He’s a great help though when I need him to hang a wedding dress up high.
Other times he’ll just hide behind bushes.
I, too, seem to enjoy hiding in the bushes… I think it runs in the family.
(I know my flash is pointing up, but I was not using it here. We went outside for a quick sunset session during the reception and didn’t take it off, just in case some of my photographer friends were wondering what was going on.)
My clients think I’m pretty funny…
No, really, they do!
Besides being an amazing second shooter, Timothy also helps set up the tables for the reception. This comes free with every wedding collection, brides. Haha!
Have you ever wondered how we take the pretty veil shots? No, it’s not always windy on a wedding day :D
There are times when our grooms want to “practice” their first look and Timothy is always happy to help.
When I try to help, they are not as thrilled…
He’ll never say ‘no’ to photo requests…
…even when he is asked to be in one. He’ll also steal the groom’s glasses in the process. Ha!
We seriously love our brides and grooms and are so thankful for each and every one of them! We cannot wait to see what the 2016 wedding season has in store for us!
Happy New Years, friends!
