Going through my own work from over the past year has been a joy! Reliving all of the most memorable weddings I have photographed or second shot this year, I feel extremely lucky. I was given so many opportunities to shoot with so many different photographers, and to all of the photographers I got to work with this year: THANK YOU! Thank you for the opportunities, laughs, tips and adventures together. It has made me a better photographer!
It’s a reminder to me personally at how lucky I am to have found something I love to do so much. It doesn’t feel like a job to me. It’s fun! That is the best way I can describe it!
