I am blown away at the connections I've made with each and every one of you this year.

2020 was a rough year for the world and on a selfish level, seeing a year where I photographed zero weddings was just so... twilight-y. It didn't seem like a real year and I still feel so weird when I have a whole year missing from my portfolio, haha. But then 2021 happened and... wow.

The state of the world may still be in chaos but 2021 brought so much joy, too. It was a record year for weddings for myself and many of my photog friends and I must say, all of the couples this year felt so different. In general we saw more people being patient and kind to one another, understanding and gracious. People, including myself, came out of the wood work to do whatever needed to make this year extraordinary.

I found myself arranging florals day of, fixing dresses with a zip tie, helping finish setting up the reception space, building the arch with the florist. bustling every dress known to man, tying bow ties, endless sparkler magic, and so much more -- it truly was a year of giving and serving, and how GRATEFUL I am to have served you all. From the bottom of my heart, I love each of you and have loved telling your stories. Here's to 2022!
