2013 has been one heck of a year for the SMP gang! I am actually kind of shocked I am sitting here with just a day and a half left in the year. 2014 is stretched out before me full of possibilities, hopes and desires to make as many beautiful things as I possibly can. Going through our shoot out pictures for 2013 was kind of hilarious. My hair has been A LOT of different colors and lengths this year and Dustin went from bearded to clean shaven and back again a couple times. I had a broken hand and still jimmied a way to shoot with the incredible help of family and friends. We got to work with incredible couples, make beautiful images and form some seriously great friends with our clients. We can’t thank our 2014 couples enough for being so awesome, and 2014ers we are SO excited to be working with you. Here’s to a fantastic year behind us, and another beautiful year ahead.
I can’t thank Lisa of The Goodness enough for being my right hand at our first wedding of the year. She saved my life! Shooting one handed – without my dominant hand, and the hand that, you know, controls EVERYTHING on a camera was wild. Talk about stretching yourself! Blessedly, my second cast at least gave me the use of my trigger finger, but if I NEVER have a cast again it will be all too soon.
Also there is the JOY of working side by side with my favorite Alchemy gals! Kate and Shannon are the BEST! And getting to work with them is always the highlight of my year. Thanks to PJ James for changing lenses for me at this wedding (again with the broken hand stuff!) and snapping off these fun pictures.
My husband CRACKS ME UP! He LOVES to photo bomb, and he loves to make weird faces when he’s being my light tester. All part of his charm. I think this next set of photos also shows how our personalities are so complimentary – Dustin throws an I Love You sign, I flip him the bird. We’re perfect for each other I tell you!
Favorite pictures EVER! Love my gals at Hello Glam and of course the team at Flourish. Oh, the joy of working with people you love!
