At the beginning of 2013, I set a goal for myself. I wanted to book 10 weddings. TEN? Was I out of my mind? I had only shot a few the previous year, but I set my sights high. Amazingly, I booked exactly ten weddings last year, not including those I second shot for other photographers. This year, the new goal is 15 and I fully intend to meet fifteen wonderful new couples who will trust me to capture their big day! Each and every wedding I shot was unique and a true reflection of that couple. I could go into all the detail, but that would be a looooong blog post! Instead, I just wanted to share a favorite image of each of my 2013 couples and some of my favorite things about their wedding day. Some you may have seen on my Facebook page, but some have been sitting around in files on my computer for a few months. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I enjoyed shooting them and getting to know these great couples!
