Josh & Danielle Files | Behind the Scenes on Wedding Days | Best of 2017

Photographing weddings takes us to many places & allows us many unique experiences. And we obviously have cameras while everything is going down (ha!). . . so we occasionally snap fun photos or we end up in awkward test shots. This is the first time we’ve ever done a behind the scenes blog post & we’re sure it’ll make you laugh. Looking back through these memories from the past year’s wedding reminds us (as we are always reminded) that we’re so blessed to be able to do something we love for people we love with the person we love. ohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersBrittany & Adam’s day was so lovely. It was the perfect weather & they are so sweet!ohio wedding photographersThis one makes me chuckle because Josh does such a great job taking photos of everything during the processional & then he has to sneak through so he’s not standing in front of the entire wedding ceremony throughout the duration because no one wants that! haha. I was taking a shot of all of the bridesmaids wiping their tears & Josh popped up at the last second as he was sneaking away since there was no other place for him to go once the processional was finished. Stealth ninja mode haha!ohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersAs you’ll notice throughout this blog post, there are many, many different weddings, but there are very, very few dresses I wear. I find what works & stick with it! It’s sort of my wedding day uniform- a dress that is long enough to bend over in. For obvious reasons. ohio wedding photographersIf you need fluffing, hair fixage, dress primping, boutonniere assistance, or pocket square help, Josh & I are here for you!  ohio wedding photographersYou’ll see lots of veil tossing in this post. The expressions on our faces as we’re running away are always priceless.ohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersYou’ll also see quite a few of our awesome friends we love working with on wedding days in this post! This is Emily Rusu from Jet Wedding Videography; we always have a great time working with her & her husband Bill & they do lovely work! The MUA in this photo is Jen Melia. She owns The Makeup Boutique & we highly recommend her!ohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersWe have lots of Emily & Bill photos!  We have heard/seen other photographers in various groups we’re in online complain about working with videographers (no one we know personally), but we have to say that we are SUPER blessed in the Youngstown area with so many amazing videographers that we absolutely adore working with! They’re fun & they’re professional. We have always been able to work out wonderful ways to stay out of one another’s shots & provide the brides & grooms with beautiful photos & video at the same time! ohio wedding photographersohio wedding photographersHey!
