This year has been so very blessed! I honestly cannot believe all the amazing and unique Albuquerque and Denver weddings I was able to photograph, along with the beautiful seniors and families! I am so blessed to have been there to capture such sweet relationships and stunning love! I could ask for a better job. So thank you to my extraordinary clients this year, you've made it one I can never stop praising God for! This post was really hard to narrow down because I wanted to feature every single client and couple I worked with, but man is it HARD to pick just one photo. But here it is:
The year began with photographing Christina & Steven's winter wedding in NM. Only in NM is it 60 degrees in February, haha but still an lovely wedding with such a stunning couple!
I had the sweet pleasure of photographing an old friend from NM's wedding. It just felt like yesterday that we had the conversation about being surround by married couples, and here she is almost married for a year now! <3 you guys!
Megan, she is just so BEAUTIFUL ! I am so happy to have been her baby sitter at one point and now the photographer that captured her senior photos. How quickly life goes by. So thankful we can capture lovely moments with photography.
It is so neat seeing people you went to high school with, especially behind the lenes photographing their wedding. Erin and Aaron are such a sweet loving couple. I was so thankful to capture their lovely wedding day!
Jorden & Daniel's wedding was so adorable, such a perfect fit for their personalities and interests. I honestly love following them on Facebook to see the amazing adventures they are living out being teachers across the world. What an amazing couple that is on fire for the Lord!
This year was just filled with people who I'd meet a few times or knew before, but how neat it is to be apart of their future in marriage. This was the case with Jessica & Ian. Jessica and I meet back at a college church gathering and her family and my husband's family grew up going to the same church. Such an adorable couple and so in love!
Again another couple who I knew before I photographed their wedding, Sondra & Jordan. Their wedding was adorable and so simple yet elegant. I was so thankful to have the opportunity to capture such a unique couple!
Hannah & Chris are just beautiful people, and I wish they lived here so I could have gotten to know them more because they are those people that just seem like the friends that keep you laughing and are full of so much life and fun. It was so sweet to be apart of their wedding day in hearing the hilarious stories and capturing the moments of those being shared.
Dawn & Brett are two very firm believers, and man has their faith been tired and testes this year. It was so amazing to be apart of their wedding day that was full of much joy for the fact that all of their parents were even able to make it to the chairs of the church to witness the beginning of their lives together. Such a beautiful couple, inside and out.
Laura & Fabian's wedding was very adorable and full of unique ideas. I loved the rich culture they were able to celebrate in joining together. That is just so beautiful to me.
Lindsey & Jacob are like the nicest people you'll ever meet. If I can remember correctly I think Lindsey was fixing my dress on her wedding day. Haha. I just know their love will stand strong because they both put others before themselves. Which is honestly the key to marriage. ;)
Kate & Patrick's wedding was absolutely beautiful! In moving to Denver their wedding was one wedding I dreamed about photographing. A mountain wedding at sunset. Kate is one of the most creative brides I've had this year and still amazes me with all the projects and ideas she had for her beautiful wedding!
I honestly didn't get to know Victoria & Gabe very well but I know that their love for each other and family is very strong and that much was so evident in their lovely wedding day. So thankful to capture their wedding day!
Erin & Greg are such a lovely couple! They are already like an old married couple in that they just get each other and work so well together. Something which after getting to know them over drinks one evening was very evident. They are such a solid couple and will last a long time!
Kate & Evan are the most chill people I've ever worked with They both are so gracious and thankful people, which is such a breath of fresh air. Their devotion to each other is so sweet, and I was so thankful to capture their engagement here in Denver and wedding in Albuquerque!
Kait & Joby are beautiful people. They both are so sweet and easy going. I was so excited to take their engagement pictures this year and cannot wait for the wedding next year!
Elyssa & Matt are like the coolest people you'll ever meet. They both are so stylish, creative, sweet and witty. Their wedding was a stunning wedding that was soo much fun to photograph because they had such great decorations they hand made and unique ideas I've never seen before. To top it all off on their awesome rating they both love the Lord and have a deep passion for serving others in need, which is evident in their career choices of working with special needs children. Cannot wait to see what awesome things they do down the road. ;)
The Auld family is such an adorable family. Amy has been such an amazing cheerleader for my company and for that I am SO thankful! I hope I get the opportunity to photograph this family again as the kids grow! :)
Courtnee is a pretty girl. It is so crazy to think that she is graduating from the same high school I went to, well like...mm actually not going to give that date, but lets just say awhile ago. ;) We had so much fun going to a house of a friend of her mom's and taking photos in the bosque (aka river area) in Albuquerque. The Lord just greatly blessed us with some beautiful light towards the end of the session. Beautiful girl plus beautiful light equals stunning photos!
Becca & David, well Becca is my bestie but that aside the love and selflessness these two have together just make me tear up in joy. On top of that their passion and devotion to the Lord is so inspiring! I love these two so very much and cannot wait to see how the Lord will use them in stunning ways in the future.
The Withey family is a new little family but so cute together. I love their story of a late beginning for our culture but filled with such a rich love for each other!
The Strebeck's are such a serving couple and I cannot wait to meet the little one growing inside of them. This little guy is going to be so deeply loved and cherished by the most serving couple!
The Curry family is super sweet and beautiful together! I cannot wait to see how little Cooper grows and changes as he is surrounded by great love of his parents.
Finally, Anne and Jason who's wedding was a dream come true for me. A winter wedding in the heart of the mountains buried deep in piles of snow! Now, this is an exception to my normal rule of not posting photos so early after a wedding, but I just had to share one from their wedding since they got married this year! More on their wedding coming in the coming weeks! :)
Thank you to all my wonderful clients for such an amazing year. Praise God for all of it! I cannot wait to see what 2013 holds!
Happy New Year!!
