Behind The Scenes 2015 | Maison Meredith Photography | A Reader’s Favorite!

December 31, 2015

And now, what better way to end the year than with our true highlight reel ; ) A post that always tends to be YOUR favorite (at our expense)!! Haha! Okay, not ALL of these behind-the-scenes shots are embarrassing!

Thank you, thank you, to our clients, readers, + supporters … without you, these moments would not be possible. Hats off to an amazing 2015, + now with eager anticipation, we wait for all the New Year has in store!! 

xoxo, Maison + Caleb

Okay, okay, you didn’t think this post was going to be that boring, did you!? Just pictures of us shooting? No way.

Caleb has been known to carry my bag for me …

… which oftentimes means he’s carrying my bag AND his bag, all while shooting (he’s a pro)!

When he runs out of hands, he then has to use his head to carry things (like women’s hats or floral crowns). 

And sometimes he just carries everything. 

He also is the MASTER at taking family photos (the grandmas always love him)!!

So do the little kids!!

Another thing he does is make the magic happen for those gorgeous veil shots …

I promise I actually do stuff too.

Believe it or not, I’m actually pretty good with bridal parties ; ) 

Are you going to be okay, sir? You got this!

Everybody calm down now …

Okay check yourselves boys … are we in a straight line?

I know she’s yours now, Jordan, but no need to be making those kind of faces at your wife!!

Did she really just say that?!

I did … and now I’m going to walk away …

Let’s take this back to Caleb.

He’s just so handsome!!

Sometimes more than others ; )!!!

If you haven’t noticed by now, he has a mind of his own ; )

Okay, we’re both a little weird. But in all seriousness, who wore it better!?!

When the priest wants a photograph with you …

… or the guests want to take your picture …

… you work with what you’ve got.

I’m calling this next set “The Hand Series” (aka when I’m taking a shot + Caleb ninjas in unannounced to fix a stray hair).

Can you find me?

What are you looking at???

What are you shooting at?!?

BEST photo bomb of the year. Caleb had NO idea this happened until later when I showed him the photo!!! HA! Also, this is Father of the Groom ; )

That one time we randomly ran into Caleb’s sister in downtown Madison during bridal party portraits!! So fun!!

We LOVE working with Eric Floberg Film & Photography!!

We also love climbing trees!! (Well, Caleb does)! ; ) Anything for the shot!!

Wait, anything for the shot? Are you sure we should have brought the dog?

Speaking of dogs, ours like to tag along for shoots whenever she can : )

Okay, now I know it’s windy, but just hold on tight …

You guys, too!!

Looking great, you guys!! I promise I actually have a camera somewhere … oh wait, Caleb’s probably holding it for me.

Don’t worry about leaving the clients way back there, Maison …

Despite our craziness, we are so thankful they still love us ; ) One last Cheers! to a wonderful, WONDERFUL year!!
