Wedding images of the Year 2015

2015 was quite a year! I’m blessed to work with beautiful brides, talented and creative vendors, in amazing venues, and with so many wonderful people. As I look back on it, I can’t even believe I’m so lucky as to see such beautiful things and experience so many beautiful moments. Ending the year in gratitude for what I do and for all of you who have participated in the year with me through photography and reading the blog. Thank you so much! So cheers to you all, and also cheers to these awesome things.

First, cheers to when this styled shoot turned into an actual proposal!
