Behind the Scenes 2017 and 2018

Behold! The most hilarious blog post I’ve ever posted to date! I absolutely love seeing other photographer’s “behind the scenes” posts, so I thought I would show you guys a little bit of what goes on during a photo session or wedding with me!! A huge thank you to Lauren and Sophie for being my awesome second-shooters!


Okay, first up! More goes into those gorgeous veil shots than you might think!

Lauren has been such a huge help and is super awesome at throwing it up…

And getting out of the way!

We do our best to get different angles…which sometimes means that we are in each other’s shots!

Driving to the first look with the gorgeous CNic Photography bride!

Also, I promise I will not look this bad on your wedding day….my hair has a mind of its own. πŸ™‚

You may wonder why I have bad posture….exhibit A….

And, they are married!!!!

It’s not even the reception, and my hair is going CRAZY!

When the flower-girl forgets her basket…the photographer becomes the flower-girl.

When the venue has gorgeous bathrooms, you must take an exhausted selfie at the end.

I have had the awesome privilege of being able to work as a second shooter for some awesome other photographers this year! Danae of Β Danae Marie Photography allowed me the privilege of getting to assist her! You can check out her work here :Β

Testing out the flash for the sparkler exit..

She really gets into her work… πŸ˜€

And is an awesome dress – fluffer πŸ˜€

She loves photographing long as you have some awesome neutral couches as a backdrop.. πŸ˜€Β 

And, she is willing to go into any foliage to get the perfect shot.

Love you lots Danae! Thanks for letting me join you this year!

Now, the only thing harder than photographing other people’s families, is attempting to photograph you own! Thankfully, Lauren was willing to jump in and help, otherwise, we would have gotten nowhere!

Trying to get 12 people all doing the same thing is pretty much impossible!

My most flattering picture ever….haha, thanks Lauren! πŸ˜€

These two! My parents are the craziest people, but I love them!Β 

When EVERYONE wants to be involved!

Shooting again with this lovely girl! Thanks a bunch Lauren!

When you hire a photographer, you aren’t just hiring someone to come and take pictures…you get detail pictures…

A photographer that will carry ALL of the things…..

An awesome second shooter who will be my test lighting subject literally anywhere, anytime!

I have really come to enjoy taking the groom and groomsmen portraits!

Testing the flash…..

Again, testing flash angles!

When your best friend does your hair…and it looks 100x better than when I do it!

Testing flash for the exit!

The vendor table with the bride and groom! We had an 18 year old DJ, a 19 and 20 year old photographer, and a 21(?) year old videographer! Ryan and Chantal, your vendors were great!!

I also had the honour of getting to work with Emily of Emily B Photography! She is an incredible photographer, and I loved getting to work with her! You can check out her work here :Β

She is fantastic at always making sure the bride and groom are looking their best!Β 


Which may include fixing a runaway veil!Β 

My ride to a couple of weddings this year! Thanks Dad!

Selfie before a family session at my favourite spot!

Oh, and you didn’t think I would be able to get through a BTS post without mentioning my OTHER second shooter?! Sophie was a HUGE help for me and filled it just when I needed her! She is awesome, and I am so thankful for her!

Telling Rachel’s dad where to stand for their “first-look”! πŸ˜€

I promise I didn’t make Rachel cry!! Β 

This one is hilarious! I have no idea what I was trying to say or do, but I promise I’m not mean!! πŸ˜€

Explaining a pose….

And another one…

Some awesome angles while testing the light….. πŸ˜€Β 

YAY! They are MARRIED!

EEK! Gotta run!!

I honestly have NO IDEA why I am making this face….and how Sophie managed to capture it, but hey, #reallife right?!

Testing the light…AGAIN..

Fixing the crazy hair…yet again…

Again, I look as if I’m mad, but I PROMISE I’m not! πŸ˜€

My face when a picture looks GORGEOUS!

It was SO hot that day, but we made it through!

Big group photo before we finished!

I love my job, my couples, my families, and the friends I’ve made along the way! I’m so excited for what the future will bring! Thank you so much CNic Photography clients of 2017 and 2018 for making these years AWESOME! That’s a wrap!
