Wedding Photography Assistant....YES PLEASE!

I have been itching to write this post, but I wanted to wait until there were some incredible pictures to go along with it.  Jordan (from here and here) was hired to be a wedding photographer for a couple she knew from JMU who were having their ceremony in Hermann, MO.  Hermann is a little under 2 hours west of St. Louis, so she came and stayed the night at our place Friday night.  We had joked around a bit leading up to the wedding about me being her assistant, but then she asked me if I really wanted to be her side-kick for the day to help her out and we could have some fun together to boot.  I was totally in!!
The whole day on Saturday was nothing short of amazing.  The bride, Jessi, was breath-taking, the location was set on top of a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, and the quaint ceremony was held outdoors under a gazebo mid-afternoon.  Without any further ado, here are just a few moments from the day.





In total, over 3,000 pictures were taken between the two of us. We left the house at noon and arrived back at the house just after midnight.  The two of us had a blast, constantly showing each other incredible little pieces of the day that we caught just right.  I had never really thought about it before, but a wedding photographers job is super stressful and incredibly exhausting.  Jo said that the next day I wasn't even going to want to move bc I was going to be so spent and I just laughed, and then I laughed again the following day when I was unable to get off the couch. 
Of all my body parts that hurt the most though, it was my cheeks that were most sore.  When you spend a day with Jordan, really all that you do is laugh and smile.  The big cheesy, outloud laughing smiles.  The best kind.  So much fun, and such great memories. She's so insanely talented at her craft (check her work out at http://www.jordanquinnphoto.com/), and I'm so lucky she let me be her side-kick for the day and let me learn from all her knowledge.  I'm so lucky I've got her in my life.
