2015 Year-In-Review

It’s December!! How in the world did 2015 pass by so quickly! 

This has been such an amazing year for me both personally and professionally. 

Professionally, I’ve photographed 12 weddings. TWELVE. Twelve sweet, kind, and generous couples chose me to be their wedding photographer and capture their precious wedding days. It has been an absolute honor to serve and love on all twelve of these couples.

My year started with Tom & Rachel‘s Moonrise Kingdom inspired wedding at Bluemont Vineyards. And their whimical wedding was later published on Wedding Chicks! So exciting! Then I had the honor to photograph Michael & Jessica‘s big day in their hometown and home church with their family and friends. Their colors matched my brand perfectly and I loved every minute of photographing their gorgeous ceremony details!

May was a busy month for me bringing 4 weddings in a row! Matthew & Ashley‘s gold and ivory Gaunlet Golf Club wedding was first and had me swooning because of all the gorgeous details. Tim & Kendal were next with their intimate, rustic wedding at the Hanover Tavern. Kendal’s bridesmaids were beautiful pastels and were some of my favorites all year! My last May wedding was in my hometown for the sweetest couple Greg & Sarah Beth! Sarah Beth got ready in the most beautiful parish house and their whole day was sweet and lovely! My streak of 4 weddings ended with the wedding of one of my old high school friends! Christian & Kim had the coolest reception at the Virginia Transportation Museum in Roanoke and amazing handmade details. 

In July, I had my first double header wedding weekend. Drew & Christy had the most gorgeous mountainside wedding in one my of all-time favorite locations. Christy also picked neutrals and purple as her colors, so I was in photographer heaven! The next day, Eric & Sandy celebrated their marriage at the Lewis-Ginter botanical gardens with lots of Jamaican flare. I loved all the unique details they added into their day like the tea pot wedding favors and amazing reception decorations.

I rounded out the summer with two more joyful weddings. Jason & Lindsey tied the knot at Twin Lakes state park and had a water gun exit (which is now one of my favorites!). And Allen & Jamie had a classic and lovely wedding at the Roanoke Country Club full of pretty and a few funny details. They also shared one of the sweetest first looks ever! 

And then finally I rounded out the year with two October weddings. Cade & Diana were wed at the Founder’s Inn! After Diana being out at sea for months before their wedding, it was so sweet to watch them finally become husband and wife! The next week, I had the honor of watching Drew & Jordan tie the knot and share their first kiss together at their ceremony! They had the most beautiful fall day and were able to get some amazing portraits with the fall foilage!

And you know what? My season isn’t over! I have one more wedding later this month too and I am so excited to send 2015 out with a bang! It’s going be awesome!

But seriously, to all of my wonderful 2015 clients, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. You are all the reason I get to live out my dream of owning and running my own little photography business. I love my job and can’t wait to see what 2016 brings!
