Looking back on 2017 I'd say this was an establishing year. I have been a photographer for 8 years now, but this was my first year as a full time licensed business and my first season as a wedding photographer. Some of my goals for the year I accomplished, some I didn't. But I learned so much and that is more valuable than anything. Not only that, but I had so much fun along the way.
Traveling, epic locations, and Instagram likes are all awesome, but its tears in the eyes of brides, grooms, and parents when they see their photos that mean the most to me. Hearing their expressions of gratitude and that they'll cherish these images for the rest of their lives is the greatest compliment I could ever receive and it's a big part of why I do what I do.
Thank you so much to everyone who has supported throughout this first year. A special thanks is in order to my parents, friends, and especially everyone who has trusted me with capturing their love. I'm currently booking for 2018 and it's already shaping up to be a fantastic year. I can't wait to see what else is in store.
