Wow! 2011 was a really amazing year! I had some seriously fun shoots, and worked with some absolutely wonderful couples. I am still so pleased by the fact that I have such a fun job, and I am in love with what I do. I sincerely hope that it comes through in each and every photograph that I capture. Like last year, it was really difficult to narrow down to the best of the best, because every shoot and every wedding holds so many ‘favorites’ that I include on my blog. So, if you will bear with me, I narrowed it down to around 100 photos again this year, to highlight my 2011. I continue to be grateful for all of the relationships I’ve developed, the people I’ve had the opportunity to work with, and all of the incredibly magical moments that I’ve witnessed. Thank you all for your unfailing support! Here’s to an even better 2012! Peace and love.
It’s all about you, your love, and it’s about me getting to know you too! Here are my favorite engagement photos from 2011. From simply sweet, to tastefully stylized, engagement photos should be an expression of your personality.
What a fun way to have a trial run with your hair, makeup, flowers, and gorgeous dress. Not every bride decides to have a bridal session, but for those that do, this part’s for you.
I love details! The flowers, the dress, those sexy shoes, and things that sparkle! Yes, please!
The Bride Getting Ready
This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day. There is so much excitement and nervous energy in the bridal room. Tears flow, laughter erupts, champagne corks pop.
The Groom Getting Ready
Never to be overlooked, the wedding day is as much about the groom as it is the bride. But I can’t tell everything that goes on in the groom’s room. I’ve taken an oath. If I did tell you, I’d have to kill you.
Well, it’s all built up to this moment. The vows, the exchanging of the rings, the symbolism of two becoming one.
I do! Now let’s take some romantic, lovey, sweet, intimate, and romantic photos. Yes, I said romantic twice! I think you get the idea.
The Bridal Party
No wedding is a party unless there is an awesome group of friends to help you celebrate. It’s about having a blast, letting loose, and being there for the bride and groom on their big day.
I haven’t met a cake that I haven’t liked. Or cupcake. or donut. Mmmm….cake.
The First Dance
Here’s your moment. All eyes are on you. Are you going to do it up ballroom style? Classic arm in arm? Or perhaps something choreographed?
The party is jumping, the music is thumping, the drinks are flowing, and people are…jumping in the pool??? Oh heck! Let’s party!!!!
The Grand Exit
It’s your last hurrah! Petals, sparklers, bubbles! Leave ‘em wanting more!
