I always look forward to that very first wedding every year. Even though it’s only been a month or so since my last one, I get excited for what the new year will bring photography wise.

If Katie and William’s wedding was any indicator for the new year, it’s going to be a classy one. Stunning decor, an elegant bride, and a wonderful night filled with lots of love and excitement for the new couple, this was the perfect wedding to kick off the new year.

The Best of 2013 | Weddings

It’s hard to believe we are already nearing the end of another year. With such an awesome year last year I knew it would would be tough to top. I’m a firm believer that your only as good as your last few weddings, so we put 110% into each of them this past year. All 43 of them.

And it seemed to pay off. In February we were named “South Carolina Wedding Photographer of the Year” at the yearly SCAWP competition in Columbia, an honor to which still amazes me even today. We got to shoot all up and down the east coast, from New York to Florida and everywhere in between. We had the awesome honor of hosting our very first wedding photography workshop, where we had 8 talented photographers come from all over the southeast. And we won our first two international wedding photography awards at the April and November Fearless Photographers competition.

It was definitely one heck of a year photography-wise and I cannot thank all my awesome clients enough for the privilege they give me to be with them on such an incredible day. Here are some of my favorite highlights from 2013:

Isle of Palms Charleston Engagement Session | Shijo + Judy

16 Dec 2013

It was exactly what I needed in the middle of a cold, rainy December. A weekend away, catching up with old friends, eating strange food, and exploring a tropical paradise. I always forget that Isle of Palms and historic downtown Charleston is only just a short drive away. Growing up in a very cold and snowy Upstate New York doesn’t let me take that for granted either.

I met up with Shijo and Judy yesterday afternoon on what was a cloudy, yet promising, Sunday afternoon on Isle of Palms, just outside of Charleston, South Carolina. It was great to meet up with Shijo and his new fiance nearly 5 years after we graduated together from RIT back up in snowy Rochester, NY. As we walked around the beautiful Wild Dunes Resort on the north end of Isle of Palms, and later the historic downtown of Charleston, I couldn’t help but be immensely grateful… not only to get to live in such a beautiful place, but to also do what I love… capturing people in one of the most exciting seasons of their lives.

Karmen and Michael’s wedding was a bittersweet one for me. My last wedding each year always is. On one hand its great to finish out the year with a bang, but on the other hand… I really honestly love doing what I do.

Michael and Karmen were married this past weekend at the beautiful Twigs Tempietto here in Greenville, SC. With the entire wedding held in the dark, I knew it would be a fun challenge for my last wedding of the year. I knew they would be really fun to work with too, great personalities and totally in love. It all came together to be a perfect ending to an incredible year.
