I know I say it every year, but I can't believe it's already time for our annual Best of Weddings post!!! I think 2016 has gone by faster than any year my prayer for 2017 is that the clock would slow down and that we would savor every moment. Looking back over this year, we did A LOT. We try to do a big international trip every two years, and this year we chose to explore England & Scotland. Spoiler alert, it was AMAAAAZING! We were also really intentional about spending quality time with our family & friends. Our motto was "collect moments, not things." That's probably why I feel like I blinked and the year was over - it was just too much fun! We also photographed some incredible weddings this year and connected with, I think, the best couples on earth!!!

To my couples:

We can't thank you enough. You bring such incredible joy to our lives, and we LOVE living vicariously through you on one of the most emotional days of your life! We love to laugh with you, cry with you, dance with you, and CELEBRATE with you. Every email we've exchanged over the past year, every phone call, every review you've left, every gift you've sent, every heart-felt thank-you you've given to's our WHY. We do this because we LOVE to serve you and we have loved being on this adventure with you! XOXO!!! <3 <3 <3

Hooray! You made it all the way to the end! I'm pretty impressed actually...this was a LOT of photos! But you're not quite finished...what kind of friend would I be if I didn't also include some ridiculous (terrifying?) photos of me in action?! Hopefully I'll get around to doing a legit behind-the-scenes post soon, but this'll do for now! ;)
