I know you get to see all the beautiful, curated photos in my wedding blog posts throughout the year. But what you don’t get to see is all the awkward, embarrassing behind-the-scene moments that make everything happen! And yes, there are a lot of those (unfortunately). It’s all part of being a wedding photographer!! So […]
