Holy Cow!  I can’t believe it is 2014!!

2013 was an amazing year!  12 was the lucky number.  I met and fell in love with 12 new couples, heard 12 new love stories, and got to be a part of 12 beautiful, unique, and fabulous weddings!  I assure you, I cried at all 12 of them behind my camera (and you thought the brides were the only one’s who needed waterproof mascara at weddings).

To My Couples of 2013:  It was an absolute honor to be given those front row tickets to all the most intimate moments that unfolded during Your wedding.  Thank You from the bottom of My heart for choosing Me to share those moments with.  I was by Your side when You put your dress on for the first time, I was there when You saw Your bride walk towards You down the aisle in all her breath taking glory, and I was there to cheer as You were announced husband and wife for the first time.  It is a privilege that I do not take for granted.  I spend hundreds of hours reliving those moments in front of my computer as I edit, and believe or not, I tear up again…and again.  My husband knows this about me, and loves me for it…But I think he has all of You to thank 🙂

It is with great excitement that I share this 2013 wrap up blog with you all!  My couples have chosen their absolute FAVORITE Image from their wedding and now it is time for YOU TO VOTE on YOUR FAVORITE!  The TWO Images with the most votes will win a 16×20 Gallery Wrapped Canvas!!!

Ok, Here We Go!

Image #1) From the Bride: Pure wedding romance and seduction in the sky!! I still don’t believe that the Bride and Groom is us…So much drama and beauty captured in this picture. It really captures LOVE and meeting each other half way! Simply beautiful.

Image #3) From The Bride: I love our smiles and the appearance that we are just floating away on the pond together…

Image #4) From The Bride: Love this picture because it is so romantic with the church behind us and my vail blowing in the wind while kissing my husband.

Image #7) From The Bride: Historical family photos capture a classic moment in time that will be seen by family generations upon generations. When I look at old wedding photos of distant relatives, I can feel the love and history that the photo captures, a love story is told through a single image. This photo will be our historical wedding photo … telling our history & love story to our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Image #8) From The Bride: This picture was taken right after our ceremony, and we were so relaxed, content, happy, and in love, which I think shows through in the picture.  The lighting almost personifies the serene glow of love that we feel in that moment.

Image #9) From The Bride: When I look at this photo, I feel absolute joy; you truly captured every ounce of happiness Cary and I share when we’re together.

Image #11) From The Bride:  The angle makes the kiss look candid and unforced (which is really tough) and it’s one of the few you did in black in white, its just classic.  The lighting highlights the gold on my bangle and his new wedding ring, it also makes my veil look so soft without making it disappear with a B&W filter.  Nothing about this image is forced… it just embodies what romance and love looks like.  (Photo Credit Matt Scharf)
