Best of 2017 || Brides and Grooms and their Entourage

This is the last set of the 2017 best of weddings! It was a crazy year but I’m glad to be here with more photos, more experiences, and some of my favorite images I’ve created EVER. We had a busy fall with 33 weddings in 3 months and to be honest I’m not sure how I got through it. This year I’m already on pace to make sure I finish each wedding within a couple weeks so I don’t get behind. I hope for much more amazing and beautiful couples, and hopefully I’ll see all of you readers at a wedding soon. Please enjoy!

Best of 2017 || Tying the Knot || Ceremony and Reception

We’re rolling out the last two Best of 2017 wedding images! This set is from the bulk of the day, candid moments caught either from a far or from my personal interaction with my couple and their guests. This is what being a photographer is about, putting yourself out there and meeting people on more than just the surface level. I love my job because it’s what I’d love to do everyday. Hope you love these images, please enjoy!

Best of 2017 || Rise and Shine || Details and Getting Ready

I actually believe the morning of a wedding is the hardest part of the wedding to cover. Within about 2 hours and sometimes less in the morning when we arrive at a wedding, I’m focused on making sure we find a place to gather our gear, unpack everything, meet all the bridesmaids and groomsmen, family and any friends, grab the details and shoot creative shots of the dress and rings and things, make sure to capture both sides doing toasts, card readings, gift exchanges, and getting ready, as well as decor, special moments, ALL WHILE pushing their timeline and making sure we’re on time. Alot of photographer’s know this all needs to be shot, but alot of photographers may fall short. And if i don’t get every shot, I wouldn’t be worth my salt. This stressful part of the day deserves its own blog post in my Best of 2017 weddings, hope you enjoy them!
