2014 has been AMAZING to say the least! I got to work with so many
people! Every one of my brides and grooms are so special to me. I absolutely loved getting to capture each unique and gorgeous wedding day! The same goes for family and newborn sessions as well. Each and every family that I worked with was so wonderful. A lot of them were families I have worked with in the past, which makes it that much more special to see how each family has changed and grown! This year was the first year that I felt like "this is it", this is what I do. I don't do this on the side. It's my career! I had a lot of "I can't believe this is my job moments" this year while at a wedding or during a family session. I feel incredibly blessed to be able to do what I love for a living, and I am so thankful.
What made this year even more awesome was my second shooter, Marissa. She owns her own business as well and I often second shoot for her. She has quickly become one of my best friends and we talk to/see each other a few times a week! I am so thankful for her friendship and the way that the two of us have grown together as photographers! She's just the best!
I wish I could write something about every single photoshoot and wedding from this year but I would be writing ALL night and no one would read a 30 page post :p. Here are some of the highlights from this year :)
In February I tried something a little new and held stylized Valentine's Day mini sessions. My friend Katalina helped with all the set up and it looked so adorable! Thinking about doing them again this year, if I can find a space :)
We started off the year with Ashley and Matt's wedding in April. This wedding gave me my first experience of driving a golf cart...which I quickly got the hang of (thank goodness!)
In May I got the awesome opportunity to shoot one of my best friend's weddings in San Diego! My first destination wedding!
This is where the ceremony was!
At Rita and Kirk's Wedding the whole bridal party was on the news when News12 NJ interviewed the bride and groom asking them what they loved about Point Pleasant. It was definitely a unique experience and made for some great photos!
In October I shot my favorite mini sessions of the year...Fall mini sessions! The weather was absolutely perfect both days and the families were all so much fun to work with :)
In November we shot a beautiful Fall wedding in Brooklyn. We got to photograph the bridal party at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. So gorgeous!
It's really hard to choose but here are just a few of my favorite photos from the year!
Thank you to all of my amazing clients, friends, and family who made 2014 such an incredible year. I can't wait to capture more of life's beauty and joy in 2015!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
