Sacramento Wedding Inspiration: What’s Your Wedding Season-Fall {Behind-the-Scenes}

Ever want to know what happens “behind the scenes” at our photo shoots?  Well, we’re here to give you a little sneak peek video (by JB Wedding Photography), and while we’re at it, share the “photo bombs” that our editor, Wendy, insists on doing at all of our shoots. Yeah, we do try to have some fun, and laugh a lot on our shoots ― they’re quite a lot of hard work, so the occasional photo bomb makes us all laugh and get a little goofy! Enjoy!

Here’s the behind-the-scenes video so that you can meet the fabulous wedding pros who helped to create this styled shoot along with our real bride model, Katherine.


And, let the photo bombing begin. Can you find “Wendy?” Kuddos to real bride model, Katherine, who managed to keep a straight face through all of Wendy’s antics!
