2017 year in review | weddings + couples

Wow. Wowowow, where do I even begin with you, 2017?

An insanely full year – full and good, and exciting, and fulfilling, and beautiful, and hard, and amazing. I drank a ton of coffee, explored a ton of cities, studied a ton of art and graphic design (and other subjects), wrote a ton of sarcastic Instagram captions, laughed a ton of laughs – and photographed a ton of the most incredible people on the planet.

I think back to everything and I cannot believe all of the beauty I was able to photograph, all of the space I was given to create, all of the people who put their trust in me to witness and document their intimate, stunning, unique stories. I still pinch myself that this is what I do and these are the moments I am allowed into.

And here’s the thing – I am so honored and blown away by the kindness of these humans in welcoming me into their hearts not just as a vendor for their wedding day, but as a friend. Grace and Kevin, Alma and Mike, Alexa and Mike, Cassandra and Noah, Julie and Ryan, Ashley and Akeem, Nicole and Mackenzie, Samantha and Kristos, Katelyn and Garrett, Paul and Sarah, Anthony and Vinesh, Hannah and Sean, Kelly and Jon, Meredith and Steve – I cannot tell you how much every single one of your hearts has changed me, has made me better, has given me purpose. Thank you for all of the love, laughs, understanding, patience, and compassion you have shown not just me but any life you touch. It has been an absolute honor to serve you in the past year and I don’t believe there are better humans out there than all of you.

So! Here is every couple that hopped in front of my camera last year. It was insanely hard to pick just a few favorites from every wedding and one from every engagement or couples shoot – I clearly have a lot more to blog from the fall wedding season and that’s coming as soon as possible. I want to share every image from every one of these weddings because I love these people so incredibly much.

Without further ado, here is a selection of the love stories of 2017, weddings and then engagements. Another review post is coming shortly filled with portraits and lifestyle work, so stay tuned and enjoy!
