And now the final (and best!) installment of my 2011 round up – the photographs! I had so many amazing portrait sessions, engagements, elopements, and weddings this year. (And I still have two more weddings to shoot before 2011 is over!) I haven’t yet blogged all my weddings and portraits yet – lots to come in January – so some of these photographs may be brand new to you, and some you’ll remember. But these are my favorites. (For the sake of brevity, I have left out my favorites from my portrait sessions/engagements/etc. This post is long enough as it is, so with the exception of one of my favorite proposals from this year, these are all from weddings/elopements. I may do a portrait session installment next week.)
It was extremely difficult to pick my favorites – some I loved because they are technically good, some I love because of the moment they captured, some I love and I can’t explain why – I just do.
My favorite photographs (in order of when they were shot) from this year:
*A note about what is going on above left and why I love it: This couple – Karen & Bret – surprised Karen’s son by giving him a ring during their ceremony, to symbolize that the three of them were now a family. It was one of the most touching moments I’ve ever witnessed – Karen & Bret were crying, her son was crying, the officiant was crying, I was crying… it was really awesome.
