wow. wow! what a year it’s been. i can say, without hesitation, that this was the best year of my life. i feel so blessed right now. i feel as if i did so many things and accomplished so much just in one year! i traveled more than i ever imagined…i made it to las vegas, los angeles, canada, and seattle. i met my biggest influence, sarah rhoads. three times, in fact! i gained so many new friends, it’s hard to keep track of them all. i ran a 5k race at my best time ever. i went on adventures. i quit my job and became a photographer full time. i shot 12 weddings by myself this year. i cannot believe that. how did i go from 2 last year…to 12? i can’t express how thankful i am for that. thank you so much to every single one of my clients. i learned more about myself this year than any other year of my life and i just want to say thank you to everyone who’s been there for me and supported me. i have such high hopes for 2012! i have amazing weddings booked already for next summer and i’ll be graduating from college! i hope everyone had a great year and here’s to the next one!
i can’t believe it’s been over a month since i last blogged. whoops! it’s insane how busy i’ve been and blogging has been the last thing on my mind these past couple of weeks. with studying for finals, christmas, trying to wrap up the last of the weddings i have to edit, updating my website, and getting ready for GRunveiled (a grand rapids bridal show), things have been busy to say the least. here’s one photo from a wedding i shot in november…jess and erik. two incredibly kind people with big hearts and a crazy group of friends!
i hope everyone had a great christmas! i’m shooting my last wedding of 2011 tomorrow, so expect the 2011 wrap up post within the next couple of days! have a great new years
just a couple from my engagement session with katie and cody a few weeks ago. honestly, i left this session with my heart feeling so full. these two are exactly the types of people i love working with. so warm and loving! my favorite part of this session was hearing how their parents and grandparents met. such amazing stories to tell their kids someday! anyway, i’m so excited for your wedding, you two!
