Dear friends, Happy new year! Bonne année! Ein glückliches neues Jahr! Hauoli Makahiki hou! Szczesliwego Nowego Roku! Feliz año nuevo! Chuc mung nam moi! I am thrilled to share my favorite 50 photos from the year with you.
2014 brought weddings and engagements in Mexico, Virginia, California, North Carolina, Chicago – and of course all over the great state of Texas. THANK YOU to my warm, funny, loving clients. I am always thanking my lucky stars that I get work with such big-hearted brides and grooms.
Lots of love to my talented team of editors, second shooters and assistants, who were and are such a wonderful support. Special thanks to Izzy Ramirez, Ashley Landis, Brie Mullin, Greg Lovett and Julia Robinson.
In June I was thrilled to be ranked fifth on the Top 20 Wedding Photographer’s in Texas by Bridebox — woohoo! Last year also brought in 7 new Fearless Photographer Awards.
Speaking of Fearless, another highlight of the year was attending my first Fearless Photographers conference in Arizona in November. I love being a part of this group/family.
How did it get to be January so quickly? Once again we find ourselves at the beginning. Without further ado, I’d like to present my favorite photos from 2014.
Wishing you love and light in 2015,
What. A. Year.
I wish I could tell you 2014 was all love and light for me. But it was not. It was intense and painful at times, and that’s why when I look at these pictures I am filled with deep gratitude that I had these jewels of moments to fill me up.
Here’s what I learned… A certain darkness is needed to see stars. ― Osho.
I’m absolutely surrounded by stars.
There’s something AWESOME I want to share with you. I collaborated with a talented graphic designer at Mae Mae Paperie to design this stunning book. There’s nothing I love better than design and books, so I am jumping for JOY!
We wrapped our first wedding of this year on January 3rd. What a beautiful thing a new year is! These 2015 brides and grooms – wow. Prepare to be dazzled by this group.
To whet your appetite, here is a link to my first Gallery Book. The second one is going to be even better.
