Best of 2016 / Santa Cruz California Wedding and Elopement Photographer
What an incredible year it has been! I’m singing from the rooftops with gratitude for all the wonderful people I’ve met this year, the privilege to take care of important memories and the opportunities to shoot in some insanely gorgeous places with wonderful humans. As I reflect back on 2016, I can’t quite believe all the adventures I’ve had this year and all of the personal and creative growth I’ve undergone. To all my past and current brides, grooms, and portrait clients: it is a huge honor for me to be let into your lives and defining moments. Getting to know each of you, earning your trust and photographing you is something that gives me a lot of joy. Thank you for giving me that privilege!
There are many more amazing moments that I didn’t include in this post, but I wanted to throw together a few of my favorites from the past year. Here they are!
