I have searched high and low for all the behind the scenes shots of Molly Weir Photography. Most are completely unflattering of me and I am totally ok with that. I fully believe in not taking yourself too seriously because then life wouldn’t be an adventure or full of fun.
This post is my favorite because it’s basically the blooper reel of my 2015 wedding season. I love blooper reels because most of the time they are funnier than the show ever intended because they are real and authentic. This is a small portion of what kind of craziness usually goes on behind the scenes, behind the camera if you will. It usually consists of me climbing into bushes, wedging into a corner, carrying lots of cameras at once, volunteering to be the light test model, acting like a goof, and taking ALOT of photos! I wouldn’t change a thing.
Most of these were taken by my wonderful second shooter and photographers I was second shooting for.
Let’s kick this off with a nice normal photo of me working hard for the clients!
crouching photographer, hidden clients.
Sometimes my wonderful husband came on shoots as my light holding, second shooting assistant
I can’t even explain why this position was comfortable. Whatever the reason it looks ridiculous.
Don’t mind me…Let’s cute cake!
You can tell it was summer because of how sloppily that hair is in a ponytail.
He makes such a nice light stand.
Yes, stroke his beard?
Sometimes I take normal photos.
Yes those are colored light gels over my eyes. Clearly I had reached the loopy state of evening.
Again, anything for the shot.
Last but not least, this gem. Again, notice the glow sticks.
