AN ARCHIVE OF love stories

Being invited into the the lives of extraordinary people is an incredible privilege. The stories I adorn through my imagery capture the true essence of the human spirit and the art of being in love.

2012 Was an amazing year. Here is proof.

2012.  Wow.  What a year is was.

Professionally and personally, I could not have asked for more.  It was the year of the weddings.

I was invited into the lives of incredible human beings.  I had the honor of photographing them.

From young ladies getting ready to venture out into the “real” world to couples in love.  Madly, deeply in love.

Every day I thank God for this gift.  Not the gift of skills or knowledge, but the gift of relationships.  The connections I have established with amazing people.  People that have made a lasting impression on my heart.

Thank you is not sufficient enough to express my gratitude and joy for the incredible adventures my clients provided me this past 12 months.

I appreciate you.

So, here’s a little glimpse at a few of my personal favorites of some amazing people and memorable moments.

(and yes, I am VERY behind in blogging several weddings…but hey, it’s about my clients and they come first. The Blog posts can wait.)
