Boy do I have a fun behind-the-scenes today. For quite some time now, I’ve been itching to do a promo-video piece. But I wanted absolutely no speaking parts. ha! I always tell potential clients, you wanna have chemistry with your wedding photographer, so I really wanted to find the same spark in our videographer. I’ve shared my love for LoveBirdStudios countless times here, and I knew they would be the perfect fit for us. So of course I’ve been planning and styling this big ta-da for months! I wanted it to be me and I wanted it to have a beautiful midwest flair. Oh man, where to start – What was I going to wear?! What nail polish color?! Where was it gonna be?! So many decisions in hopes of making it timeless + seasonless, and of course impactful for our viewers! So this past May we did it! …on a very hot day.
Very last minute, like a week before the shoot, we decided to add kids – because hey! they are a big part of our business too. I threw it out on Facebook – ”photographer seeking two darling models who would listen and follow direction for 1 – 2 hours.” I was afraid no one would respond, because seriously do kids really listen?But holy cow, I received such a great response! I got so many cuties interested. I ended up choosing Ryan (the cutest little girl with curls) and Oliver. I actually think I’ve made a love connection with the two, and I’m hoping that since this shoot they have set up a play date.They wouldn’t kiss for me, but they did hold hands and wrap their arms around each other.I’m dying on how well they did and how aaaadorable those two are. Thank you Tina + Katie for letting them be a part.
Long story short, I was awkward, goofy and incredibly nervous. Now you will just have to be as patient as I am to see it – any day now!
I can’t leave this post without giving a BIG special thank you to the crew who helped a girl out!
