2012….It’s a Wrap! (and a little personal)

I tried so hard to narrow down the recap from all of these weddings, but alas….I couldn’t. So feast on 100+ images….

I remember the day I decided to do wedding photography full time. I have been so blessed to be able to do what I love every day. It was a pretty scary, special, exciting, impulsive decision that felt 1000% like the right thing to do. I mean, I had a newborn, who needs a steady paycheck, corporate benefits, sick time, health insurance, and lunch breaks? Scariest day of my life. Most rewarding day of my life as well. What I would potentially gain from this GIANT leap of faith was more than I could ever imagine. I started to photograph weddings in 2006 and went full time in 2008. In January of 2009, I was still petrified to say “I am a photographer” to anyone. A drawer full of gushing “thank you” notes and publications later… I am a wedding photographer. I still can’t believe I get to play cameras and dress-up every day, but I just love making my clients feel amazing about themselves and giving them a legacy to hold in their hands and treasure.  I am excited to see what 2013 brings.

This year for weddings was a dream come true. My camera landed me in print in CHINA! I went underwater with two lovebirds from Hong Kong, we danced in the streets of Downtown Dallas, we had fun at a REAL Fort in Oklahoma, we played (wedding) dress-up at a bar and it was amazing, we sang songs and played guitar in open fields, we rode horses….all of this for some beautiful photographs. Its been an amazing year filled with wonderful clients with so much creativity and artistic vision. Thank you for a spectacular year and for trusting me to bring your vision to life!
