2015 was such a great year for weddings. I met a ton of great people and their families and got to do a little traveling as well. I fell in love with Vermont, wandering around the Brown campus and re-visited the DC area.
I worked with some great photographers as well and met some really nice vendors. All the venues were great and of course I learned a lot this year about myself as a photographer, my style and my work flow.
I'm looking forward to the 2016 wedding season. This year I plan to only do 6-10 weddings and work on growing the portrait side of my business a little more. I'm also looking to explore some more around the state and bring you more "places to visit" articles.
I have another 30 days to really game plan my 2016 year in photography, but I'm pretty pumped about it.
I wanted to say thank you to everyone who worked with me in 2015 and I look forward to seeing some familiar and new faces in 2016.
As my fourth wedding season goes under way it had me thinking about the overall experience. I started my journey by doing some shadowing and second shooting. I read a lot of articles online and found some amazing photographers. I found that there are so many styles out there and different ways of telling the story of the wedding day.
It was great to see that you could be yourself in the world of photography. Although its easy to want to be like someone you admire, or try out shots you've seen, it is totally up to you how you present yourself.
So in the past couple years I've done some second shooting and a lot of primary shooting. I learned so much and continued to work on my "style".
Photography has been so much fun, but wedding photography has just been so rewarding. I have met so many great people, visited wonderful places and have been able to share in all the fun of a very special day. At first it was all about getting the right photos, but later it was about feeling the day.
I've watched families come together. I've heard some deep and hilarious toasts and seen people dancing furiously. I've listened to bands, DJs and some great MCs. I've gotten to visit several states and shot in a variety of climates. And I've laughed with the wedding party.
Weddings are so special and leave me with such a great feeling. I'm honored to be a wedding photographer and can't wait to continue.
I honestly feel that as the wedding photographer I get the best seat in the house.
2014 has been a busy year. All the weddings were super amazing. From the ones in my back yard to the one all the way in California for one of my childhood friends.
Weddings are so much fun. So much emotion, special moments, and countless things to photograph.
2014 brought in:
All new gear - I broke ties with my Nikon gear and made the switch to Fuji. And so far, I am really happy with my decision. The gear is smaller, unobtrusive, gives me lots of options and superb quality.
An increased passion for wedding photography - I studied more this year, practiced more and shot a variety of new venues as well. I had a chance to develop my style further.
New clients and friends - Its great to work with nice people on sessions and their weddings, but its truly special staying in touch with them after the fact. I've also met other photographers who are just as passionate as I am.
I'm looking forward to 2015.
I have a couple shoots on January 1st and a wedding to cover on the 3rd.
That's a great way to kick off the new year!!
Thanks everyone who's been supportive on my journey!
Yesterday morning I was running out of my house and I saw a lone leaf on one of my bushes. With the light rain falling I knew I had to go and grab my camera and capture this 'hint of Fall'. The Fall is so pretty in New England. I'll be sure to share a few photos in the upcoming weeks of how awesome it really is.
