Behind The Scenes of 2016

Guys! I can't believe its time to start another year! New Year is one of my favorite times ever - it's so inspiring, and I always feel this energized buzz to do a million things at once! Looking back on where I was this time last year, I could not be more thankful for the strides I and my business have taken this year. I had the privilege to shoot and second-shoot several weddings, put together a styled shoot with an amazing vendor team, take classes, participate in challenges, and shoot more than any other year in my business. So thank you friends, family, mentors, and of course clients for making it possible!

I love looking back at the end of the year on all I was able to be a part of, so today I thought I would share some of my favorite behind-the-scenes captures from this year. There were so many more shoots this year that aren't featured here (as I don't always have another photographer along to be my paparazzi Haha!), but I hope you enjoy these little glimpses! (Thank you to all of my friends and assistants for these - Kirk, Ashlyn, Tiffany, and Hannah!)

 Some of you may not know that I started the wedding season with cotton candy pink hair! :D

 Catching a glimpse of my face on a wedding day is quite a rarity.
