Do you believe 2011 is already gone and we are 19 days into 2012?? I don’t, it’s crazy! I know I’ve said it before, but I guess I’ll say it again, 2011 was a slower year. That is not to say it was bad AT ALL! Life we just changing and I couldn’t commit to very many weddings. However, I was lucky enough to work with Jim Carpenter at Dustin and Karen’s beautiful Williamsburg wedding, which included my all time favorite reaction photo from the boyfriend of the lucky lady who caught the bouquet. Priceless! I was also thrilled to work with Jim on Michael and Crystal’s lovely Charlottesville wedding. Then in July, I so happy to be working with my friend Jessica Rayborn on Nick and Joanna’s very personalized Charlottesville wedding. As always, we had a blast working together and Nick and Joanna were amazing.
By fall life had gotten crazy for us as we had just found out we were moving to Santa Barbara, California. Amongst the mayhem that was our life in transition, I had the honor of photographing my friends Cory and Shaele’s wedding down in Nags Head, NC. It was just a thrilling time on the beach as their two families joined together and I was so happy to be a part of their day.
So the “best of” list for 2011 weddings is quite short this year, but I have to say if I was only going to work four weddings, these were amazing picks! I hope you enjoy some of my favorites as I looked back over the year. 2011 was a wild ride for me, I hope 2012 is just as crazy and fulfilling. Have a wonderful week!
