Best of Weddings | 2016-2017

As every year comes to a close, I love taking a look back at the weddings I photographed and picking out a few favorite photographs.  Different images become a favorite of mine for many reasons.  Sometimes the light is what speaks to me.  It could also be the pop of color that draws me in.  It could be a new location I’ve never photographed in that speaks to me when I look at the photo.  Often, it is a photograph that was really challenging to take technically because of the location or time of day.  Whatever the reason, here are a handful of my favorite photographs from the weddings I’ve photographed this year.
