This past year brought dozens of new experiences. We photographed our first Indian wedding, traveled to Italy and Greece, held our second wedding photography workshop, captured a wild Jewish Orthodox wedding, added dozens of new awards to our wall, and documented 37 beautiful weddings scattered all throughout the Southeast. It was certainly a year of new experiences, cultures, and opportunities.

Of course, boiling down roughly 100,000 photos taken this past year to just 100 wasn’t easy, but it’s necessary in order to condense all of the stories, memories, and emotion behind the photos into something that fits into a blog. This past year further amazed me of the power of photography to freeze a moment forever, and I’m honored to have had the opportunity to be the one to choose those exact moments. A huge thank you goes out to all my excellent couples who trusted us to be there to capture their weddings this past year. Without further ado, here are 100 of my favorite moments this past year:

Classy Christmas Wedding at the Commerce Club | Tegan + Mack

When I first met with Tegan and her parents about their wedding I figured something was up with the date. It was December 19th, 2014. First off, December isn’t exactly prime wedding season, and why do it on a Friday? They actually had a very good reason. You see, it’s a tradition in Tegan’s family to get married precisely on December 19th. Her parents did, her grandparents did, along with several other family members, and they have all stayed together ever since. Talk about a unique tradition!

Now I’ve seen a lot of tacky Christmas weddings in my day. You know, the ones with the bright red bridesmaid dresses accented by green flowers and matching groomsmen with red vests and green ties? Don’t get me wrong, I love Christmas… but that’s not exactly my cup of tea. I’m happy to say Tegan and Mack stayed far away from that, but still incorporated the Christmas season with some very tasteful and elegant choices. After a beautiful intimate ceremony at Lutheran Church of Our Savior everyone headed downtown to the Commerce Club on the 17th floor of the One Liberty Square Building. Decked out in thousands of Christmas Lights, candles, and beautiful centerpieces it was a perfect backdrop for a night of excellent food, dancing, and plenty of great holiday cheer!

End of Fall Engagement Session with Megan & Philip

There comes that sad time every year when I know, just know, that it will be the last chance I get to go to a shoot with the beautiful fall leaves still hanging on desperately to the branches. I’ve thought that more than once this year, but the leaves have hung around for a little extra time this year. Maybe they were just waiting for Megan and Philip’s shoot? Lucky enough for them, they did, and we had a great time running all over downtown capturing some great shots of them enjoying the incredibly warm weather we had that day.
