WHAT. A. YEAR! It was so fun going back through the archives of photos I have from weddings this past year! I was lucky enough to second shoot with Vanessa Smith Photography, Hannah Smith Photography and Hope Taylor Photography along with taking weddings of my own this year 🙂 I loved working with these ladies as well as my 2018 couples to capture memories to last a lifetime! Every year, I go through and pick out some of my ALL TIME favorite pictures from the year and I love putting them together in a blog post, sharing them and also taking the time to look back at my recaps from previous years to see how I’ve grown! Here’s links to last year’s Best of 2017 Seniors (Part One & Part Two) as well as Best of 2017 Weddings! I’m hoping to add in a behind the scenes post this year (because those are always super fun and SUPER flattering hahaha) so I’ll try my best to capture & collect those as well in 2019. Someone hold me to it! Also this is a LONG one so for all you awesome people that actually scroll through to the bottom of it, virtual fist bump from me!
Favorite moment of 2018?! Hahaha just kidding but definitely the best wedding day surprise during bridal party portraits!
AND favorite reception moment! All in one wedding haha!
And last but not least, the only two people I’d give up YAR for, Adam & Suniah!!
Thank you to everyone who gave me the opportunity to capture all the meaningful and joyful moments of 2018! I am sitting here getting ENTIRELY too excited for what the 2019 wedding season has in store 🙂
