Day 1955 – Greene Behind The Scenes – Wedding At La Banque In Havre de Grace

Whenever I do a behind the scenes, I try to include at least one “nice” picture of us….

But we tend to attract fun and silly clients, so the “nice” pictures don’t last long…

When the couple is eating dinner, we tend to kind of sit back, relax a little and watch the action. Bret decided this was the best spot…

“Ha ha, I’m just kidding guys, you can enjoy your meal in peace.”

day_1955e

“Sherry, will you tell me a story? It’s a good time, right?”

day_1955f

Bret always seems to get the cake body guard task…

day_1955g

“Ummmm, yea, I took a bite….is that ok?”

And to finish out….I love this shot kicking back with the bride showing her some fun shots. 🙂

Day 1922 – March Madness Winner Photo Shoot Behind The Scenes!!

On Sunday we had the honor of photographing a session for our March Madness contest winner! It was such a beautiful day and I can’t wait to share the pics!

This may be the first for a portrait session, but here’s the behind the scenes!!

What is required to prepare for a portrait session?

Well, first, you have to come up with a bewildered pose. For motivation, think “Why am I here? What am I doing? Do I smell something? Was that me?”

day_01922a

Realize that it wasn’t you, so you can smile about it.

day_01922b

Make sure you keep in touch with the client, but still smile when you’re on camera.

day_01922c

Look through the little hole on the camera to make sure you can see through, but also keep your other eye open when your husband asks you to look at his camera.

day_01922d

Make sure you smile and look DIRECTLY at the camera to make sure it works.

day_01922e

Look off into the distance, like all good photographers do. And make sure you make the photo black and white in post.

day_01922f

If you’re losing motivation for the shoot, get the “Jen photographer thinking face on.”

day_01922g

Make sure that your free bag carrier husband carries everything for you.

day_01922h

Capture his reaction to your request to carry the bags.

day_01922i

Make sure he looks off into the distance, like all good photographers do.

day_01922j

And now you know how we prepare for a shoot! ::cue NBC, “The More You Know” music::

Day 1866 – Leaf Behind The Scenes – aka – When Bret Finally Gets Back At Me…
