Behind the Scenes | Personal Wedding Photographer

I absolutely love my job!  The anticipation, the emotion, the excitement…all of it make my job one of the most enjoyable things I have ever done!  I love my clients and the people that work for Leigh Skaggs Photography!  We work HARD!!  The hours are long, we carry heavy equipment, and we cannot make mistakes…so the stress level can be high… but we play hard too!!  Seeing our Behind the Scenes images is always one of my favorite posts of the year!!  I love reliving these special days and remembering all the places and people that touch our lives throughout the year!  So sit back and enjoy a year in review…2016! 

Always love when Megan is coming to the wedding!  She works hard, picks on Jay with me and makes sure I don’t forget anything!!
