What a year 2022 was and here are the behind the scenes to prove it! I can’t even begin to explain how blessed and grateful I am that I get to call this my JOB! I never dreamed that I could do something I love so much and also have it be a way to support my family. When I’m out there with a camera in my hand it lights my soul on fire. I feel it down to my bones that this is where I belong and this is what I’m meant to do. Not to just take pretty pictures, but to connect. To give priceless memories to people who will look back on these moments for the rest of their lives.
But one of the best parts about my job is the people. The relationships I make and friends that come along the way. Some I’m grateful to carry with me so much further than just their wedding day or family photo session. I’m getting all emotional now thinking about the amazing people I wouldn’t have in my life right now if it wasn’t for this passion of mine. I don’t know what I would do without them.
I’ve also had some amazing second photographers alongside me for the ride this year and I don’t know how I would manage without them. I’m super excited to announce that Chelsea from here forward is going to be my main second shooter for all wedding days! We are partnering together in my business and I’m thrilled to have her on my team to help make our couples’ wedding days a dream! She so efficient and organized, yet fun-loving and captures all those in between moments. Including a lot of these behind the scenes of my doing my thing! Check out all of these amazing moments we caught during our year! There was rain, (so much rain!), sunshine, laughs, and me getting myself into any position to get that shot. I also discovered I can’t be complete without my trusty fanny pack! Haha! Here’s the 2023! Bring it on, we’re ready.
