This has been a BIG year.
First off, I am so thankful with what God has done this year with this business. I asked a BIG prayer in the Spring, which was “I want 15 weddings, please”. I got 15, but one dropped out in December because of plans changing. So I think that is an answered prayer, but it has been such a blessing with the 14. Also, I’m so thankful to have such a wonderful wife who always supports me in all this. She’s simply amazing!
Secondly, thank you to everyone that let me be a part of your celebration. It is such an honor to be chosen to take pictures of each of your weddings/families/anything. There are a lot of photographers out there, and I am so thankful that each of y’all for choosing me to capture your sweet moments. Thank you so much.
Here are some pics of this year’s fun times. Hope you enjoy and that your year is really blessed and wonderful.
P.S. I’m praying for 30 weddings this year, so get ready!!!

But the winner is…
