Hampton Roads Wedding Photographer -Behind the Scenes of 2014…Part II-

So Leigh Skaggs Photography finished a very busy Spring/Summer Wedding season a few weeks ago.   As always, I feel truly honored and so lucky to do what I love so much, for people that I love so much.  Being able to document the day when two people decide to embark on one of the most important relationships they will experience in this lifetime is so rewarding for me…and honestly there are no words that describe how much I appreciate being given that opportunity again and again, to be a small part of some many personal histories!!  Being a wedding photographer is a HUGE responsibility, and anyone that knows me will tell you that I take it VERY seriously.  The day is full of fun and love, but at the same time it is hard work and I strive to make sure that the people who trust me to document such an important day are given the BEST I have…every time!!  But, in doing my best, sometimes funny and silly things happen behind the scenes that get documented.  I love sharing these things with everyone.  So without further ado…Behind the Scenes…Part II!!

I am short…so I am always looking for something to stand on!
