Welcome to the eighth edition of my "Guy Behind the Camera" series! For new readers, I started this last winter where I wanted a place to showcase some of our guys who take our outfit shots for us! I grew to appreciate Brett as he went through some pretty crazy scenarios just so I could have a fun blog post. Just recently we were nearly eaten alive by mosquitos and another time on the boardwalk it was so busy, Brett said, "I'm done. Forever!" Haha! I couldn't be more thankful - it makes it so much easier to take photos with Brett around! First, we have Elena from Caffeinerd. Her and her boyfriend - after a year of long distance - now live together and she used to only be able to have his talent on select weekends, but now she's beyond thrilled to have his mad photo skills at her disposal any day of the week! She says that Adam has no tolerance for any self-deprecating remarks that she might be tempted to make during outfit shoots and never fails to get great "detail" shots! Adam also has a little bit of photography experience under his belt, so while maintaining his day job as an engineer, she feels so privileged to have him as her guy behind the camera!
Secondly, we have Grace from Money Smart Fashion. I got to know Grace a little bit when I redesigned her blog layout for her last winter and she is so sweet. This is her boyfriend, Mike, or SSBF as she calls him on the blog! He was never one for taking pictures, but somehow with her blog she has willed him into doing it and he has really started to enjoy it! Taking pictures has been a great excuse for them to go out and explore on the weekends. He even thinks of places to shoot now! Grace says she wanted to submit him because he is the love of her life. She's not one to be mushy and lovely, but there is just something about him that makes her that way (Aw!)
Next up, Hannah from Hannah and Landon! I was so excited when Hannah decided to submit her and Landon for the feature! I sat in front of her last year at the Chictopia 10 conference and was just in awe at how gorgeous she is! My jacket kept falling and she'd keep picking it up and putting it back on my chair - haha! What a sweetie. Hannah says that without her husband, Landon, there would be no Hannah and Landon, but rather a much less exciting Hannah and Photobooth! He's responsible for all of the romantic photography that she wishes she could lay claim to on their blog. Her next step with their blog is to get him in front of the camera more often as his sartorial choices are often much more exciting than her own!
Fourth up, we have Marissa from Marissa Explains It All! The guy behind her camera is her boyfriend of two years, Greg. With him taking photos for her, her style has grown and it has been an opportunity to go to new locations, have fun and take her style to a whole new level! He makes her feel so comfortable in any location and knows (after being told once) what kind of shots she needs (including detail shots and all!) Not only does he take the pictures, but he helps her with all of her HTML problems! Her blog would never be as great without him!
And last, we have Tina from Clothes Lady! Her husband, Joey, always takes her photos for her! He never complains about it, either. (Lucky!) He is so sweet to her and will take pictures for her anytime she asks him to. Tina wants to give Joey credit because he's so kind and loving and always gives her compliments about what she wears! Geez, sounds like the total package. Brett usually complains about how my bra straps are showing or my hair is too feathered. Hehe! Sounds like you have a great guy, Tina!
Well that's it for the August feature of Guy Behind the Camera! If you would like to submit you and your guy, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, your blog URL, a photo of him, a photo of you and why you think your guy deserves some credit for being behind the camera! If you enjoyed reading this blog, be sure to check out the first seven editions! I'll be back in September with five more lovely ladies and their guys!
