Steve had to rope Jenn in for another episode of his podcast, which is the best photography podcast out there. This time Steve and Jenn get a bit experimental.

Since we didn’t shoot last week because we were on vacation, there is no wedding to post. Instead, I thought I’d post some of the behind the scene work Steve and I have done. I wish all of these pictures were of my handsome husband but he is usually the one taking the behind the […]
