Best of 2018: Weddings & Engagements

January 1, 2019

The end of the year blog post is always the hardest thing for me to do, but one of my favorites as I get to relive my adventures from the previous year. Weddings really are adventures, simply because no matter how much you plan, there’s always an unknown. I kind of prefer it that way.

I traveled over 4,000 miles for one of these weddings. I fought off a hoard of zombies for another. I had one wedding where just about every piece of equipment I owned malfunctioned or broke. I got caught in a downpour twice. I had a groom with a broken hip. I was so sick during one of these weddings I could barely hold my camera to my face.

This is why I call them adventures.

To the wonderful people in these images, I appreciate you all more than you will ever know.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for an incredible 2018.
