his past year was absolutely incredible. Words cannot express our adventures around the world in 2011. We had the incredible opportunity to photograph beautiful weddings here in Arizona but also traveled to, California, New York, Texas, Chicago, Montana, Seattle, Indiana, and the absolute furthest was Sydney Australia. This was definitely a year of a lifetime and I cannot be more thankful to all the bride and grooms who trusted us to document their wedding day. It was indeed a year of adventures and we cannot wait to see whats to come in 2012!
I wanted to highlight below my favorite weddings and engagements (It's a long post so prepare yourselves :) in this past year. Some weddings we did not feature on our blog for different reasons but these are the ones I can show you :)
On a different note, I have been SO slow to blog. After this year came to a close I needed to just breathe. Not only does traveling wear you down but photographing and editing definitely wears you down if you don't take time to relax in between. I wasn't super good about relaxing so as the year came to a close, I found the BEST reason to relax. We found out that were HAVING A BABY!!!! Yep, I'M PREGNANT and due in AUGUST! We couldn't be more excited about this news and it couldn't have been better timing. God knew.... We didn't book a single thing till March and IM SO glad because I have been SO sick. Whoever made the statement "morning sickness" didn't account for those who are are sick ALL day long. I know its worth it in the end, I just can't wait till I feel back to normal and can get back to work. So thats why I've been MIA on blogging!
Also, My new blog-site is in the works with the awesome guys from Infinet Design. I just got my mock preview from them and I am IN LOVE with what I saw. Cannot wait to show everyone.
A special thanks to everyone we worked with this past year and to every vendor that worked with us behind the scenes. You guys rock.
