2022 – WHERE DO I EVEN BEGIN!? I thought 2021 was the craziest year of my life, that I couldn’t possibly get any busier. Well, I will be the first to admit that I WAS WRONG. 2022 was a wild one, and while I am tired and I am ready for a break, I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you to every single one of my clients this year who worked with me in ANY capacity, thank you to the local businesses who work with me monthly and the relationships I’ve formed with all your wonderful staff members, thank you to the friends who shared my posts or simply hit the “like” button on Instagram, thank you to my vendor friends who have turned into my work family who I get SO excited to work with each weekend! I wouldn’t be here without you all. This year, my job took me to all kinds of destinations around the world, and I hope to continue that even more this year! In 2022, I beat all kinds of records, I had the most weddings I’ve ever had, and I even won an award from Cape Fear Living Magazine for “Best Wedding Photographer in Wilmington.” Thank you, thank you, thank you! Thank you for trusting me with documenting such an important day in your lives, for laughing with me, for making me feel so at home with you and your people, for putting up with my dumb jokes while we shoot portraits, for dancing with me at the reception, and even for one bride who turned to me after her cake cutting with her new husband and then fed ME cake. You know who you are!!!!!

Just sharing some of my own personal favorite moments from the weddings I worked in 2022 – and no I couldn’t get the number of favorite photos under 340 images so it’s fine. I love you all. In backwards order from the end of 2022 to the beginning because I got frustrated with WordPress and couldn’t figure out how to randomize the order – again, it’s fine.
