Wedding Photography in Review : 2011


Too much. Excess. An overabundance. Of love, happiness, support…and hard work, but I think those things are harmoniously synergistic. This past year was filled with ups, downs, and OHMYGODWHATAREWEDOINGs, but I wouldn’t have changed a thing. This is primarily in part to having some of the most amazing clients. Ever.

Being a wedding photographer allows me to live out my dreams, dare to hope, and challenge myself to be a better person. For this, I’m thankful. However, I realize without the love, happiness, and support of clients who believe in my ability, I’m nothing. Here’s a look back at some of my favorite wedding photos of 2011…

Here’s to hoping, dreaming, and working for an equally as amazing 2012!

    I am amazed how the image of the couple walking in the alley with the Air conditioner units and all in the background does not look out of place with all the other images. Maybe by itself or with many others, it would… but it has certainly given me something to think about and possibly use.
