The Year in Review blog post has quickly become my favorite post to put together. To look back through all the blog posts of the past year and relive all the fantastic weddings – well, it’s something special. It’s amazing how the memories of everyone’s wedding and engagement shoots come flooding back in vivid detail. 2016 brought me to 42 weddings, a bunch of engagement shoots, and a lot of very fun couples and wedding receptions! Interestingly enough, the first wedding of the year was January 2 and the last wedding was December 31 – both in my hometown of Winston-Salem, NC! And in between, friends brought me to their weddings from the mountains to the beaches of North Carolina, down to Charleston, SC and up through Washington, DC into Jersey Shore, back through Baltimore, MD, the hills of Virginia, across the country to Chicago and Temecula, CA and back across again to St. Pete in Florida and a passport stamp to Sorrento, Italy.
And I’ve seen honeymoon photos, baby bump photos, baby photos, and all the smiles that have continued after that last dance and exit. These 143 photos pulled from over 2,000 photos blogged, shows that if anything, 2016 was awesome. These smiles, hugs, kisses and laughs – the families and the friends – they’re everything. To all the people who worked hard to help make the weddings happen, we thank you. And to the the couples, my friends, who brought me in on their day, their weekend, you humble me. And I thank you. Cheers to all of you!
