Jasmine, learning about Pocket Wizards from Mike
The morning of Hollie and Micah’s wedding
As I mentioned in my last post, Mike befriended Hollie’s little sisters as we prepared to photograph her wedding. The girls were fascinated with our equipment. While I was taking photos of the ladies dressing and doing hair, Mike gave Jasmine and Mercedes a photography lesson. They helped him attach our Pocket Wizards to our flashes with velcro, and they did a great job, may I add. Mike demonstrated to them how the PWs activate our flashes remotely, and the girls seemed to grasp all the concepts really quickly.
Ladies, you know what I was thinking during this whole process… Is there anything more endearing than watching your husband be great with kids?
Tamera makes a friend
I can’t believe that I haven’t posted this picture yet! I just found this picture again today, and had to post it for my friend Tamera to see. It was a hilarious moment after a wedding that we shot together last fall. After the wedding ended, she and I sat down to eat some leftover cake. As we were chatting, the hired clown came over and joined us. He was a totally nice guy, but Tamera has a bit of a clown phobia. I just love the look on her face when he decided to sit next to her. Her eyes almost popped out of her head, and she looked at me like, “Holy crap, what do I do now?” He started chatting with us, oblivious to the fact that Tamera was afraid of him. It took all my willpower not to burst out laughing.
One of the many great things about being a photographer with your spouse is that you end up with lots of pictures of each other at work. Now that our summer wedding season is over, I thought it would be fun to look back on all the fun times Mike and I had on our photo shoots!

Check out this hilarious self-portrait that Dave took of the two of us while I was busy photographing his beautiful bride, Tracey. I had no idea he was taking this picture at the time… how funny! You may remember that Dave carried his camera with him on their wedding day, which I thought was such a fun idea. I was thrilled when Dave emailed me some of his photos and gave me permission to post them here. Thanks, Dave!

What an awesome picture! I’d like to send out a big thank you to Jessica’s mother for taking some great candids of our bridal session. I didn’t want to carry more than one camera into the water, so I asked her if she could hold my second camera for me. Since I know that she’s a gifted photographer, I asked if she would be willing to take some pictures of the three of us in action. The pictures are fantastic!
As you can see, I got almost as wet as Jessica did! The best camera angles were right at the water level, so I jumped on in. Somehow I never dropped the camera. Tom went in the water, too! That’s Tom Sanderson, my new friend who offered to drive all the way from Williamsburg at the last minute to help with this photo shot. Thanks so much Tom!
Hi, I’m Charlotte! I’m a photographer in Reston, Virginia. I love hiking, running, and exploring the world with my husband and young son.
