where it all started

I know Valentine’s Day gets a bad rap for being a “Hallmark holiday” but any day that celebrates eating chocolate, and being in love, is a good day in my book! So here’s to those who will get engaged today, and to those who have been in love, or hope to be!

Looking Back at 2013

Boom, 2013 is in the bank!

Every year this proves to be the most difficult blog post to draft. I imagine it’s a lot like picking a favorite child (I know some of you have them, it just changes on a daily basis I’m guessing.) So as of today, here’s just a tiny slice of my favorite wedding images from 2013. Although tomorrow I am sure to have a new group of favorite photo children.

Thank You!

To be honest, I haven’t always known how lucky I’ve been to have the business I do, I’ve mostly kept my head down and powered through. But in recent years I’ve taken the time to reflect back on the previous season, evaluate what I’m happy with, and game plan what I intend to change in the coming year. (I haven’t always been the most reflective person, I suppose because I’ve always been 20 something until this year.) So what I’ve come to realize in my wiser 30s (ha!) and have been completely humbled by in my look back over the last 7 years in wedding photography, is that without the amazing clients who have put their trust in me to document their events, my life wouldn’t be the same, and that’s a pretty big deal! So THANK YOU to all of my clients, old and new, you’ve led me on a pretty killer journey.

Also, a thanks wouldn’t be complete without a nod to all of my photography friends. Without you guys, I would drive myself crazy with business questions. As it turns out, art school didn’t come through teaching us about taxes, customer service, marketing, expenses, etc. So thank you to all of my Milwaukee and Boston friends alike, you’ve made me the person I am today, and for that, I am the luckiest.

Cheers!

Rachel + Bryan at The Hamilton

For my last wedding of the fall season I had the opportunity to travel to Milwaukee Wisconsin for Rachel and Bryan’s wedding shindig! Milwaukee has a similar vibe to the Fort Point District of Boston, with several converted buildings, except for one main difference, most of the brick you’ll find in Milwaukee is cream, hence the cities nickname “Cream City.”

Rachel and Bryan are also my seasons winners (if I was running a contest) for the best photo bomb, see below! Thanks again for having me back to your fabulous city Rachel and Bryan, I had a blast!
