This is a MAC DADDY of a blog post…hahaha!! If you didn’t see earlier this week, I shared my Best of Engagements 2018 post. This time of year is when I share all of my FAVORITE work from the previous year…and I absolutely love it! I go through every single wedding gallery that I created (which means tens of thousands of photos!!!) and select my favorite photos from each gallery. A “favorite” image can be because of pretty much anything: an emotional moment, a composition that I loved, a tricky shooting situation that I was able to turn into something beautiful, a detail that caught my eye…and pretty much anything that stretched my creativity throughout the year. Photographing weddings can get monotonous…but only if you let it!!! I love finding ways to create new angles, compositions, detail layouts, poses and ways to add creativity into my client’s wedding galleries (and my own portfolio!)
I won’t type too long here (because you have a LOT of photos to scroll through!!!) so, without further ado, here are my FAVORITE wedding images of 2018!!!
Reception images aren’t something that I highlight very often on social media, but shots like this are some of my favorite from every wedding I shoot!
I absolutely LOVE getting creative with details in tight spaces! For the dress shot on the left, there was a patterned carpet with some not-so-cute colors and really ugly blinds on the door. So, we hung the dresses for this shot, rearranged the carpet (and almost the entire room!) and ended up using the dresses as the backdrop for all of the getting ready images of the bride and her mom!
These images are from my 2018 Workshop styled shoot and I just LOVE them!!! The vendor team did an absolutely amazing job!
Gah this LIGHT!!!
Shooting in front of the Biltmore and accidentally having it all to ourselves…amazing!!!!
I’ll never forget feeling like I was LIVING in the Beauty & the Beast movie while shooting these!!
This whole bridal party walked 3 blocks with me when I said “trust me, the pink fluffy tree will be worth it”!!!
It poured and poured and poured right up until we took these images…and they are still so gorgeous!
Stephanie reading her vows to Jason’s daughter as their family became one…so special!
