2017 Favorites – An Amazing Year In Review

March 1, 2018

What a year.

This year I traveled more than I ever expected to, hit goals big + small, was honored to photograph couples + their love in amazing locations and celebrate with incredible families. To say I feel blessed is an absolute understatement, I feel a bit shell-shocked by how incredible this year was, and going back through to pull some of my favorites nearly put me in tears for how grateful I am. I wouldn’t be here without you, without your support, without these sweet people believing in me and spreading the word about me + my business. So thank you, to all my 2017 clients, my clients before, and my clients to come. Thank you for allowing me into your lives and your love, and to celebrate with you during such happy milestones. I mean it when I say you guys are like family to me, and I cherish every connection I’ve made that’s allowed me to better serve you.

Here’s to what 2018 will bring!
