2013 was a pretty kick-ass year. I took a few more chances, used weirder light, stepped back more, got closer sometimes, and am thrilled to share some of my favorite shots from the year’s engagement, bridal, and portrait sessions.

      My goal for 2014 is to get a little bit weirder, step back further, get even closer, and really bend the light. But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Here is some of what I consider my best work from 2013. (Later this week I will share my favorite wedding images, so stay tuned!)
