It was a beautiful sunny, yet cold, day for a February wedding in Downtown Raleigh. John and Janessa, with their 3 kids, were married at St. Mark's Chapel at 4:00 in the afternoon. I had an amazing time meeting John and Janessa's family and friends as they gathered to celebrate their union. The day was filled with all kinds of amazing surprises. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.
We ended the night as the sun was setting on Downtown Raleigh in front of the Capital building. What an amazing afternoon. Congrats to John and Janessa on your beautiful marriage and union of families.
I have super big dreams for 2016. I realize that may be a little blunt, seeing as it's not even January 1st yet, but I really do. You will be hearing about them hopefully come Spring as I start to put in place many BIG things.
I thought I would begin this post with an image of our first and last session in 2015. Only seems fitting to mention them both for several reasons. First would be the obvious; they were taken in almost the exact same spot. Pretty neat, huh? Second would be that they are both representing new beginnings. Third would be that they both are two beautiful, amazing couples who are KISSING and loving on each other. It really couldn't get any more ironic. The last thing I want to mention is me. My how I have changed since taking the first shot. Not only in my personal life, but my professional one as well. As my dad would say, "wowzer!"
I had the pleasure of photographing over 200 families this year. Almost double the amount of 2014. And every single family had their own unique style and personality. My job is amazing. I can not express that enough. I even had the pleasure of photographing a family all the way from Venezuela. You can find them below...
Newborns, Newborns, galore. So many babies born this year! Here are just a few that we were lucky enough to hold and cuddle:
There were several couples who were married in 2015 and we were honored to be a part of their special day.
And we had one of the busiest summers ever since we opened in 2011.
We want to send a BIG THANK YOU to every one of our amazing clients, friends, and supporters who made this business what it is today. We can not wait to show you all the things we have up our sleeves for 2016.
