2012 it's been real. I have experienced so much this last year. Seen true love, documented amazing stories, jumped on planes, driven through the night, watched my boys grow, and that is only the beginning. I made some real changes in life, in business. I am always driven to improve, to be a better person, husband, father, photographer. When I look back on this year I am grateful. I am humbled. To all that trust me--trust my vision, I am honored. Thank you for allowing me to do what I do. You mean more than you know.
I photographed 37 weddings this year, second shot a handful more for some amazing friends, and had countless sessions. I have never been more busy and I love it. I hope that love shows through the imagery. I hope my passion is seen not through anything I say or do, but through the photographs. Below, in no particular order, are some of my favorite images from the year. I did not blog much this year, so for many, this is the first time I have shared them publicly.
At the bottom is a slideshow, one that means a lot to me. Nicole and Adam’s wedding was put together in two weeks. Nicole’s father was losing a tough fight with cancer. It was amazing to see our church come together. It was amazing to see the strength God gave him to walk his daughter down the aisle, to dance. It is something I will never forget. Sadly he went to be with Jesus the following Tuesday. I do feel what I do is a gift from God and I was so thankful to share that gift with Nicole and Adam. It is stories like that I want to tell, I want to witness, I want to document.
