Best of 2016!

I can't believe it's practically July and I still haven't done a best of 2016 post! Well now I am making it happen. 2016 was a fantastic year. I was able to meet and work with some amazing couples. Happy tears were cried and there were many times when I was in awe of the gifts this incredible job brings. I bore witness to so many special moments in the lives of these people. I think I'll always remember the way Jeff teared up when he saw Danielle for the first time - and the incredible speeches that were given at Erin and Jim's reception - and the way Ryan looked at Jenny with such adoration throughout their wedding day. Thank you to everyone who opened up to me and had me document these moments. Looking at these images, I am grateful and I can't wait for more magic in 2017! 

2015: A Year in Review

Something struck me as I was going over these images and looking at these people. I felt something that I imagine couples feel when they first see images from their wedding. I saw pieces of something much bigger. These are some of my favorite images from 2015 but not only visually. These are my favorites because they take me back to these days. I see them and I remember how that day felt, how I got to know people, how I photographed such special relationships. In my work I see people being themselves, experiencing life, and fostering relationships. I love that. I can't tell you how much I love feeling that. I'm so thankful that this is my job, so thankful that I get to meet people who open up their lives to me so I can make images that are impactful and important. 2015 was full of wonderful people and great days, lessons and gifts. I can't wait to continue the adventure in 2016 with old friends and new.
