I’m a little late writing this but I couldn’t begin this new year without first looking back on the fantastic year of 2017! Last year was an exciting year for me and my family as I got engaged (yay!!) and also welcomed sibling #7 into the world! I was also lucky enough to be a bridesmaid in not one, but two of my cousin’s weddings! I’m so excited to be planning a wedding with my best friend and May 25th will definitely be a day to remember! My sweet baby brother made his arrival on December 11th and we have been giving him lots of snuggles ever since!! While last year was very busy and full for me personally it was also a huge and exciting year for my business!! I bought an office, completely remodeled and finally opened! I photographed 25 weddings and shot well over 100 portrait sessions. So many photos to look through (which is why I’m a few days late, lol!). I wish this blog post could hold a picture from every single session this year, but unfortunately that would be way too many images! Here is a collection of my favorite wedding, engagement and bridal images! Below is a collage with a picture from every single wedding. 2017 was filled with amazing couples who have become great friends. It was a year full of weddings that made me cry and definitely made me laugh!! There are hundreds of images that I’m so incredibly thankful I had the opportunity to photograph. Today I’m thanking God for a life that I’m passionate about. Photography is so much more than a job, for me it’s a lifestyle. A lifestyle of capturing moments, emotions and memories. Cheers to 2017 and I cannot wait for the beautiful images that are coming for me this year!!! 2018-01-10_0156
