A 2014 Review

  • Best of Engagements

As I look through these images from our 2014 Engagements, I’m amazed at all of the locations we had the opportunity to shoot in. Alaska, Hawaii, Seattle, Turner Field, etc! It was an amazing year for unique and VIBRANT engagement photos! As I pieced this post together, I noticed on main thing.. COLOR! There are so many amazing colors in our favorite engagement shots from 2014!!! Whether it was the blue sky reflecting off of a glacier in Alaska or a bright orange wall in downtown Sarasota, color found a way into every single one of our shoots this year!

The Images That Make me Feel Something

  • The Best of Weddings 2014

isn’t an easy way to narrow down my favorites. I had a system at the beginning of the year and it worked until May…. and then my sister got married! I was so busy that my system went out of the window. So! Once again, I struggled this year to really select my favorites. There are too many images in this post…. I’m well aware. I’m sure my hosting provider is aware too. :) I’m preparing myself for a blog crash! I just love having this post every year to look back on and see all of the work that makes me proud in one location! These images aren’t all the best technical shots…

Wedding Photography Behind the Scenes 2014

  • Our Real Life

is one of my top 5 favorite posts of the ENTIRE year!! You all get to see all of the “pretty” stuff…. and today you get to see what our wedding days REALLY look like! Sure, our couples are gorgeous and their weddings are stunning… but WE don’t always look gorgeous and stunning while we’re shooting. These are actually not the most flattering shots of us…. BUT, they are SUPER entertaining!! Not only do we get to show some shots of us working, we also try to take a few shots of our videographer friends too!!
