Whoa. What a feat it was putting together this 'Year in Review' blog post. I have witnessed and been a part of too many beautiful, joyous and heartfelt moments to narrow it down to just a few. So, sorry not sorry. This post is going to be mammoth, so you might want to grab a cup of tea and maybe take a bathroom break before settling into this one. Oh yeah, and grab some kleenex because there are many tear inducing images coming your way.
So many exciting things have happened in the past year, and it's been the biggest and best for my business so far! I finally went full time in May and had a killer 2016 wedding season, doubling my bookings from last year. I travelled a lot as well, visiting Kauai, Portland, New Orleans, Iceland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark and road-tripping through California. I have seen one of the most beautiful sunsets of my life (Yosemite), stood at the base of one of the most awe-inspiring waterfalls (Iceland), photographed my first wedding that wasn't in English (Sweden), captured a Secondline parade at a New Orleans wedding, and connected with and met so many inspiring and talented photographers both online and at some incredible workshops and conferences like Possible Portland and ARC.
Thank you to everyone who has been following along and supporting me in my journey, especially to my amazing clients who put their total trust in me to capture their special days. It has been awesome to not only document these memories but also to come out of it with new friends :) Also, a huge thank you to my husband for always supporting my crazy dreams and being there ready with sandwich in hand for those hangry moments.
I'm so excited for things to come in 2017, I already have many unique and amazing sounding celebrations on the books and a few creative and personal projects that I'm going to try and pursue. Oh yes, there will also be travel (obvs) next year we are heading to Mexico and Newfoundland as well as doing some local BC exploring. Can't wait!
See you in 2017!
