BEST OF 2015 WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY – A YEAR IN REVIEW
Yes. It’s pretty bad. It’s almost June and I’m still sharing my best of the year 2015. Well, better late than never, right? ;p
In 2015, I…
- Went to Ireland and loved the green hills at sunset
- Shot beautiful weddings with people who could become my best friends
- Cried during most vows/speeches and father/daughter dances…
- Got my luggage stolen with film in it – was devastated – and then the luggage found its way back to me (supermegaYAY!)
- Went to Photo Field Trip again, learned tons and got to hang out with amazingly talented and creative people (Kristen Marie Parker, Dan O’Day, Samm Blake, Fer Juaristi, Oli Sansom, Anna Naphtali………..)
- Also went to The Artist Holiday (with Jen Huang, Kurt Boomer, Ginny Au, Magnolia Rouge, Wedding Sparrow, Amy Merrick, Neve Albums/Heirloom Bindery, Chiali Meng and to get better with film because it’s unbelievably soulful, even though I love digital and also to learn more about styling <3
- Met more creative people than I thought possible
- Became certified to dive in Malaysia (and Oh……… such an incredible new world!)
- Got featured and even published in magazines (thank you thank you thank you!)
I’m so bad at picking photos, I get so attached to them. Because it’s a moment I witnessed. Because I know those people. Because that’s the bride’s dad or sister crying. It’s HARD to make a best of when all of your couples and their families & friends are wonderful people. It’s hard when they create so much beauty and happiness that it becomes overwhelming.
I loved all of my couples, all of their stories of how they met, fell in love. Who they were growing up and became.
I love the relationships and the way people translate them into words or actions. Or simply looks.
But more importantly, I want to keep sharing those moments, those big hearted people’s lives, if only for a day or two.
I’m so grateful to witness that love and happy people are not just in fairytales and movies. They exist. They are everywhere. Magic doesn’t happen all the time and all at once though, it’s moments. Just moments.
And it’s necessary, too, because, otherwise, we would all be spoiled and couldn’t truly appreciate life.
Thank you all for choosing me, for letting me being part of your story and to you who follow me and make me feel like my work is good when I don’t believe in myself.
Love you all :)
