2015 was, by far, the busiest year I’ve had since starting this business. While photographing 20 large weddings and a handful of intimate weddings, elopements, and engagements, I also traveled to Vancouver, Portland, Seattle, Roanoke, Minneapolis, DC, and Maui. I read 60 books and wrote half of one. This past year I turned 31, Walt and I hosted Christmas, and we started the process of buying a house. Life! It’s been pretty darn awesome.

      Because I’ve been so busy, I haven’t blogged every single wedding seen in this round-up. I hope to get to them soon. Every couple has been amazing and wonderful. It’s been spectacular making beautiful photos with you lovely people. Here is a (long) wrap-up of sessions, weddings, and a few travel photos sprinkled throughout. Maybe one will touch you.
