Behind the Scenes, Wedding Style ~ Red Wing, MN

I was adding finishing touches to this gorgeous wedding session that I shot in March at the St.James Hotel in Red Wing, MN and found this gem. The moment I saw it I giggled to myself because it brought me right back to that day, to that moment I clicked the button on my camera. I smiled as I thought back…

I was trying to figure out how in the world do I fix that curtain way up there. Stand on a chair? No… its not high enough. Stand on a table? No….. its still not high enough. So the monkey in me was like, “should I jump up there? But what if I fall and break a wrist? I won’t be able to shoot this wedding then!” Normally, I don’t get scared to do stuff like that but do you see how small that ledge is?!

All of a sudden, one of her bridesmaids says “watch out, I got this!” She then proceeds to kick off her slippers and shimmies her way up there like a pro! Seriously, I love moments like this! One, I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this shot of her in mid motion going to fix the curtain. She did it with such elegance and grace (two things I wouldn’t have had jumping). And Two. We got the perfect dress shot with out me having to Photoshop the curtains. Win win for everyone!

I just had to share that little fun tid-bit of a behind the scene at this fabulous wedding!

Congratulations again to Chris and Katie!
