behind the scenes, wedding tips, latest sessions, & love stories

2019 was a fabulous year. You have seen all the amazing ADM Couples we get to work with, featured on our Best of Engagements and Best of Weddings blog posts. What you don’t see is all the fun we have behind the scenes! Behind all the pretty and romantic photographs, you don’t see the stuff we do to “get the shot”,  you don’t see the way we interact with our clients, you don’t see US. So! Here are some of our most fun, awkward, and silly behind the scene photos of 2019!

Before we begin, let’s get this important question out of the way. Who squatted better? Alex…

Or Ariana?

Our job description consists of a lot of things. Sometimes it requires that Alex act like the bride…

And sometimes it requires Ariana to be standing up at the front, alone, with the sun in her eyes…

With all these test shots, you’d think we were pros at striking a pose for each other…

Occasionally it makes for great Instagram content (part of the job is acting like models. lol jk)…

But most of the time, it’s awko-taco! We tend to catch each other off guard…

Other times, the struggle is remembering that we don’t need to come up with a different pose for each test shot…

To make life easier, we’ll bring our handy cart along to carry all the things…

And if your session is in Toronto, you’ll occasionally see one of Ariana’s sisters lending a hand as well!

We’re basically directors. And being a director often means a lot of weird hand movements captured. Ariana always looks like she’s directing a choir…

And Alex tends to channel his inner CIA agent.

Best of 2019: Behind the Scenes

Wedding photographer behind the scenes

Meet Felicity and Brady! 

We were so excited to FINALLY take their engagement photos. We had set date after date because the weather just kept letting us down. They wanted their session in the snow…but it just kept raining

…in January and February (ugh global warming!)

There was supposed to be a snow storm the day before, except a lot of it melted the day of (LOL FAIL). But it didn’t stop us! We hiked into the forest despite the wind and -20 degree weather and ended up with a session full of laughter and genuine candids! From trying to balance on the frozen creek to trying to get her beautiful horse to pose, we had a blast! These two are the most laid back and adventurous couple. We originally planned to have their tent set up for camping photos and threw in the idea to take pictures with their dirt bikes – which didn’t end up happening at all, but their fun and spontaneous personalities were so evident just by being with them! 

Quotes worth mentioning:

1. “Can I hold your legs, I promise I’m not harassing you. I just don’t want to fall.”

2. Me: What’s your horse’s name?

Felicity: Gracie.

Me: Aww

Felicity: Because she’s….grey.

(lololol i thought she was going to say graceful haha!)

3. Me: Brady, make her laugh.

Brady: Uhm…..I think she’s better at making me laugh.

Felicity: Yeah I’m so funny I make myself laugh. I’m so great.
