The Best of 2021: Wedding Edition

It’s time to share The Best of 2021!! I’m starting out this mini series of posts with some of our favorite moments from weddings!!

2021 was a year for the record books for us. If I’m being fully transparent with you, I’ve been sitting at my desk for far too long trying to figure out exactly how to put this past year into words. How to summarize a year that had some extremely high highs, and some very low lows. 2021 was a year making up for all of the postponements of 2020, plus our typical full wedding season. So basically 2 seasons packed into on year!

This past year tested us in so many ways. It tested our creativity, it tested our skills and it tested us mentally and physically! We shot in cities, in back yards, in tents, in churches, in pouring rain and blazing summer heat. We truly got the full gambit of possibilities this year!

The year in summary:
– Launched our mentorship program.
– Had our first summer intern (who was truly the best!).
– Took 175.537 photos (roughly).
– Shot 42 weddings.
– Shot 62 portrait sessions.
Had this feature in Wedding Chicks.
– Cried behind my camera approx. 100 times.
– Drank roughly 1000 cups of coffee.
(Please don’t ask how many hours I spent at my desk editing, culling, emailing, blogging, etc. I can’t count that high!!!) 😛

As I look back over 2021 I’m filled with gratitude. I’m so grateful that we got to have a very full wedding season, especially after last year! So grateful that all of our postponed couples finally got to have their beautiful and special day! I’m so grateful that so many families trusted us without question on one of the biggest days of their lives.

To the worlds best second shooter, Jesse: You’re a rockstar. You absolutely killed it this year. I love that we get to work together every weekend celebrating love. Thanks for keeping me sane and hydrated every single wedding day.

To our 2021 couples: YOU’RE MARRIED!!!!! Despite so many obstacles and postponements and revisions, here you are! Thank you for a phenomenal year

As we look toward this new year, I’m already so excited for all of the sweet couples that we get to work with! I never ever want take the privilege that this job is for granted. We’re going into 2022 with a full heart for sure! Big things happening in the year to come!

Every year when I pick my favorites I go way overboard! I obviously can’t share every favorite moment we had this year, but here’s a peek into some of our most favorite moments of 2021!

Enjoy this peek into The Best of 2021: Wedding Edition!
