Behind The Scenes 2013

Posted by Melissa Claire Photography on January 3, 2014 in Personal | No Comments

This past year, I have had the joy and privilege to work with wonderful couples, their families, and their friends on one of the most important and memorable days of their lives. Sometimes, when out shooting these joyous events, Nick and I capture candid photographs of each other. Sometimes it’s just to perform a task like testing the light, but I feel like we also secretly want to capture a sliver of these sessions from our perspective since it’s a day that we will always want to remember and relive, too. So, please enjoy our slightly nerdy and truly candid highlights from 2013’s behind the scenes!

Short photographers can relate to finding anything stable to stand on to get that higher angle.

I can be mildly amusing at times.behind-the-scenes_0003

Hands. I tend to do very strange things with my hands. Usually demonstrating where clients can place their hands. Or just cracking up, like below.

I hardly recognize Nick here with short (ish) hair and a short beard!

Always the light tester.

All smiles. Obviously.

It makes for silly photographs :)

I hope y’all enjoyed this post featuring your photographers! In addition to capturing some of your dearest memories, my main goal is to make you feel relaxed and fabulous in front of the camera, and many times this involves embracing my inner nerdy and fun loving side to the fullest. After sifting through all of the possible shots for this blog, I’m realize (yet again) that I couldn’t have ever dreamed of a better job!
