Bed Jumping!

posted on: June 20, 2007

I debated about whether or not I would actually post this. A few people dared me to. The professional in me thought that it would be soooo unprofessional, but the Anne in me thought that it would be sooo funny!! Even though I take my JOB very seriously, I try not to take MYSELF too seriously!

The night before a wedding is usually quite stressful - double checking equipment, making sure batteries are charged, and thinking about all of the things I want to try creatively while also having anxiety over the shots I absolutely have to get. So, when I found the website, I thought I'd give it a try at the last hotel I stayed in. If you're staying in a hotel the night before your wedding - I highly recommend a little bed jumping to help you relax!! Not only was it a great stress reliver and a ton of fun, it was also a great workout!! The professional in me also used it as an opportunity to experiment with some different off-camera slaved flash techniques. Yes, I'm a dork and here are some of my slick bed jumping moves...

Jumping Froggy Style

Crouching Writer Style

Floating Feather Style

Flying Clown Style

After seeing these a few people commented that it looks like I might be on the Indiana State bed jumping team. To my knowledge, they don't have one - but if they start one, I'll sign up! If you feel inspired to try this, send your images to and then tell me about it!!
