To ring in the New Year, I am sharing my favorite moments of 2017. This is an extremely condensed list, and browsing through all the incredible galleries I was able to witness reminded me I need to blog my favorites more! This year has been absolutely insane- in the best way possible. I left a job I was miserable at, to pursue my passion full time; I traveled to a few of my bucket list places- thanks to my fiancé for giving me the best birthday gift evaaaa and to Blink Conference for believing in my art and sending me to Seattle; I got engaged and had the greatest friend and mentor, Erika with Indie Pearl Photography photograph that moment; and so many more exciting things! I have said this to Erika before, and I will shout it from the rooftops- if she had not allowed me to shadow at one of her gorgeous clients’ weddings last fall, my passion would not have ignited so quickly. I will always be grateful for that opportunity and for how far it has brought me!
So here are a few of my favorite images! Going through my work from this year has given me a fresh perspective on how far I have come- from second shooting weddings with Pensacola’s finest togs, to coordinating and photographing my dream styled session off the coasts of El Matador Beach in Malibu (I promise, I will blog that one here soon!). What is so awesome, is that all of my clients- my now friends- are totally my style. You attract the energy you put out! I have photographed the most beautiful people- inside and out- and I cannot wait to photograph these wedding days that are totally my vibe: backyard, intimate, bohemian, with a wild party to celebrate! I cannot wait to see what the new year brings- and I cannot wait to share with you all these experiences!
By the way, tomorrow afternoon (after I wake up from partying off Palafox), I will be going live on Instagram to discuss a few things I have learned during my first year as a professional photographer. I am very excited to share my ideas and I hope this information will benefit aspiring photographers in our area. I will blog those bullet points in case you miss it!
For now, enjoy *some* of my faves!
