Ever wonder what it’s like behind the scenes on a wedding day? Or how we get those amazing interactions between our couples during their engagement session?
There truly is a lot of work that goes on behind the scenes to make our time with you flow just right. I ask a lot of questions before the big day. A lot. From working with you to create the best timeline guide for the day to collaborating with your coordinator to obtaining all names of the family members you wish to be included in the family formals to your wish list of must haves for our shot list. Combine a large amount of pre-wedding preparation with the friendship I have created and fostered with you over the last months and I have the perfect recipe for your beautiful photographs.
This past year has been quite a whirlwind of gorgeous weddings, romantic engagement sessions, and fantastic couples with hearts of gold that have treated me like family. And I love it because in my head that’s what we are. From the moment you say yes to joining the #mallorymccluretribe you instantly become my family and I take an earnest interest in your lives, your upcoming marriage, and your heart.
And for my family I will do anything.
When it comes to documenting your day, I am more than just your photographer. I’m your confidant. Your time checker. Your dress and bouquet holder. Your message deliverer. I’m not afraid to ask those deep questions to get you both intimately interacting with one another. I’m also not afraid to make a complete fool of myself to break the ice and get everyone laughing. Ask Lilly. She’ll totally vouch for that. : ) And will do the same, as well. Make sure to scroll all the way through the end to see a series of images of Lilly behind the scenes. You’ll get to see what started out as a silly prompt and how she captured the magic that it created!
So when you look through my website and browse at your favorite shares on my journal or when you’re scrolling through my Instagram or reading through my newsletter, I hope you know that in order to get all of those amazing, memorable, important, and breathtaking shots I have put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears in behind the scenes in order to make those photographs possible.
It is our continued mission throughout 2020 to provide romantic and authentic fine art imagery capturing not only the pretty moments, but the real and raw moments, too. Thank you to everyone who made 2019 such a blast and I hope you enjoy this look back through some of my favorite behind the scenes moments.
