As I sit here writing this post, I just keep thinking about how truly incredible this year has been. No doubt that 2022 has gone by especially fast… I still can’t believe that tomorrow it will be over! I couldn’t be more grateful for all of the couples we had the opportunity to serve, whether that meant capturing their wedding day, their wedding celebration, or commemorating another milestone in life. This year has kept my team and I on our toes more than ever – but I wouldn’t change it for the world!
Let’s recap, shall we?!
- I got to photograph my final few weddings rescheduled from 2020! WOOHOO!!!
- Number of weddings captured: 42 (including three receptions and one Hindu/Jewish double wedding)
- Engagement sessions: 31
- Wedding films created: 37 (including two Live Stream recordings)
- Sessions in my home state: 4 (including one wedding)
- Fur babies I got to meet: countless!
- Turtles I got to meet: 1
- My first Baraat
- My first couple with exactly the same name (Hi Alexes!)
- First bride with the same name as me (Hi Emma!)
- First engagement session crashed by the Tamale Guy

Below you’ll find a collection of favorite candid moments and portfolio pieces from this year. As always, it was not easy to choose! My sincerest gratitude to each and every couple who has trusted my team to document these once-in-a-lifetime events. We absolutely love what we do, and can’t wait to do it again in 2023 🙂
Wishing a safe and Happy New Year to YOU!!!
