2014 | A Year in Review

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all. -Helen Keller

For me, the end of a year is bittersweet.  Though I love the promise of a fresh new year, and all that is to come, I also love to reflect back on the past year and all the emotion and celebration and struggles and pure joy that it held.  I apologize if this sounds redundant (because I’ve said it before, and I’ll likely say it again!), but I am grateful beyond words to work with the sweetest, most gracious, most loving couples.  You know how exciting it is to attend a wedding?  To celebrate?  To laugh and cry as a new couple promises forever to each other?  I get to do that week after week, and I absolutely love it.  Thank you to the couples (and their families and friends!) who welcomed us into their beautiful days and trusted us to capture all the big moments, the small details, and everything in between.  No really.  Thank you.

2014 was perhaps the best year yet. It started out with a bang with destination weddings in New Orleans and Mexico and brought me and my team all over Minnesota, Wisconsin and New York.  We shot at the most beautiful locations and worked with incredible vendors who helped bring our couples’ visions to life.  It’s always hard to narrow down a full season of weddings into a concise number of images because each day is so special and every image sparks a memory.   Thankful doesn’t even begin to describe it.
