2016 has been a phenomenal year for me; I’ve been blessed with so many different opportunities this year and couldn’t be more grateful. We’re a few days removed from another New Year, and it’s time again to do my yearly review :) 

My photography and eye have really grown this year in my own opinion. The main reason for that growth was an absolute and sheer determination to focus only on my photography and myself. I feel by tuning out all distractions this year I’ve finally found the direction I want to go with my art. I’m thankful for all of my clients that let me be apart of their special day, I’m so grateful for each and every one of you. I’m thankful for every vendor I got the opportunity to work with this year as well, and everyone that has had a hand in making this year such a success. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Cheers to 2017.

Here are a few outtakes and a few of my favorite images captured throughout the year.
