2017: A Year in Review

 
Luxury Denver Wedding Photographer

A year ago, I posted my '2016: A Year in Review' to the blog.  And holy hell, a lot has happened in my life since.  To put it succinctly, it was a great year for growth.  And while I'd love to share and expand on my personal, entrepreneurial, and spiritual 2017 journey with you, I'm going to save it for another day.  Today, I want to focus and share the growth in my creative aesthetics and what better way than to round up some of my favorite shots from 2017's photo shoots. 

 This year, I really loved playing with veil details in photos. It wasn't easy and it took me at least 10 shots to find this perfect one but it was absolutely worth it. Also, Stephanie + Aaron were one of my first couples this year and they really couldn't have started it off any better for me.

 I also made it a point this year to play around with my creativity. Small details count.

 Here I go again with the windows. Next year, I'm hoping to perfect the reflections even more!
