2019 Weddings – Year in Review

2019 was truly a year to remember for me! I am so excited to share this huge wrap up of all of my incredible 2019 couples and weddings in this year in review post! I decided to split up weddings and sessions since it was getting a little wild, so take some time to scroll through allllll the gorgeousness that was my 2019 weddings!

To my 26 beautiful couples:

You have all just blown my mind with how incredible, thoughtful, passionate, and REAL you’ve been. It’s been a pleasure beyond words getting to work with you for upwards of a year and a half to even two years! Honored and humbled doesn’t even begin to cover how it feels to go from meeting via email, grabbing coffee, shooting your session, and then showing up on your wedding day to see my friends get married! It’s just an unreal experience and job that I get to have, and I’m so thankful I got to be a part of all of your wedding days this year. Thank you for trusting me, going on this journey with me, and for supporting me. I’m so lucky to know you all! This year in review is for you! <3

Next, to my photography teams aka partners in crime:

We freaking did it! Thank you ALL so much for working alongside me to make my couples’ wedding dreams come true. I couldn’t do what I do without you putting your all into every single wedding day with me. From dress fluffing to tide-sticking to sneaking bread rolls and partying on the dance floor, I’m so wow-ed by your ability to make my couples feel so loved by my whole day-of photography team. It means the world to me to know that you value my couples the way I do and that you’re willing to do anything for them. My heart goes out to you for all of your support, hard work, talents, and passion. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

To ALL of the wedding vendors who make weddings come to life:

You’re all some freaking magical unicorns, let me tell you! The wild and crazy beauty that is the wedding industry is so lucky to have you all. From unreal hair and makeup talents to florals that blow my mind to venues who are on top of their game, it’s just amazing getting to work with alllllll the people who make these days happen. Thank you for making MY job so easy to get to just photograph the day as it unfolds and for helping me make our couples so happy! xoxo

2019:

I worked on so many amazing projects, weddings, and shoots, attended multiple different in-person educational events, and hosted my first 2.5-day in-person photography education workshop with my bff, Jennifer LarsenDo The Most Workshop! I shot and organized some epic styled shoots and got to travel allllll over the country. Most importantly, I got to work from the comfort of my home in my pajamas most days! 😉 This is a pretty kick-ass life, I’d say!

I could go on forever about my gratitude for everyone who helps me every single day. To my family, my boyfriend, my photography team, and everyone who supports me – thank you! I love you all so much! YAY!!! Enjoy this year in review and all of the gorgeousness from 2019!!
