WOW. It is 2013.

2012, you've been amazing! I can't believe how much has changed in just one year! My husband and I are so thankful for all that we were able to do together this year, including: a trip to an all-inclusive resort in Mexico with my family, adopting two of the cutest little kittens ever, enjoying waaaaay too many amazing meals together in both Brooklyn and Manhattan, traveling to visit family and friends, and even traveling for several weddings (including one in Boston!).

Christopher has been an amazing supporter of my business this year. He's been there for the midnight cry sessions (which tend to come after analyzing my to-do list), he's been my cheerleader (especially after I finish stalking some amazing photographer's blog and feel like I'm nothing but this), and he's even been my second photographer at multiple weddings (after being properly trained of course!). Turns out, he loves it! So, you may be seeing much more of Christopher's creative eye in 2013...woo hoo! :)

This has been an amazing year for my business as well. I've made so many new friends - including some of the best clients a girl could dream of, some of the best photographers, and some of the best wedding professionals in the north east! So, before we get too far into 2013, I thought we could take one more look back at all the gorgeous weddings I had the honor of photographing this year. Words cannot express how thankful I am for the incredible couples I got to meet this year. Thank you for inviting me to one of the most special days of your lives and for making me feel like your BFF4Eva (instead of just the hired help!). You have all made me feel like the happiest girl alive!

Speaking of amazing couples, let's start this "Best of" post with some of my favorite images of the BRIDES AND GROOMS...

And a wedding wouldn't be complete without all the amazing DETAILS...

I love, love, love my one-on-one time with the bride! We get to laugh, catch up, and take fabulous BRIDAL PORTRAITS!

Let's not forget all the amazing supporting players...the WEDDING PARTY!

And last, but definitely not least, my favorite moments...THE REAL MOMENTS!

2013, you've got some big shoes to fill! :)
