Looking back on 2016…
I always love posting about my year in review, especially when it involves staring at my favorite images. 🙂
You can see past year posts here :
(I have been a photographer since 2009, but have only been documenting my ‘Year in Review’ since 2013)
I usually do this post before New Year’s Eve, but this year I wanted to wait until the new year began. Some people have this idea that it’s never good to look in the past. Move forward. Look to the future. But how can we ever truly move forward without first appreciating how we got there? So this year, I’m looking back. I’m sharing all of my favorite images from family sessions, engagement sessions, and weddings in 2016.
There were a LOT to choose from and this was probably the hardest one I’ve had to narrow down yet! Needless to say, I’m extremely lucky to always meet couples and families that allow me to document their moments and memories. It’s ALWAYS an honor and I pray I continue to be blessed with more opportunities like this for MANY years to come.
With that being said, here is a LOOK BACK at some of my favorite ENGAGEMENT sessions :
For all of my new couples this year, check out my post on HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION.

Most of these beautiful couples AND MORE got married in 2016 and I was there! HA! 😉
I had a LOT of favorite wedding moments and while it would be easy just to post every single one of their blog post links here, I wanted to share some of my favorites instead :
SABA + SAAD
ALI + BRIAN
KELLY + MATT
STEPHANIE + MARK
MARICAY + ANTHONY
JANE + SAM
ALLY + MICHAEL
ALEXA + KYLE
KELSEY + BRIAN
How do I best describe 2016’s weddings? BRIGHT and COLORFUL! <3 <3 <3
Every time I leave a wedding reception, I tell my couples I hope to see them soon, and I truly mean that! Whenever someone contacts me for newborn or family pictures, I of course get excited. It’s someone’s FIRST time getting their picture taken and I get to document it. When it’s a past couple of mine with THEIR new child? I’m humbled. I get to witness these people as a couple engaged, a couple married, and now a couple making a family. Making a full circle in pictures for everyone…that is what I love!
This brings me to my favorite FAMILY session moments in 2016…starting with my own family out in Boulder Colorado!
<3 <3 <3There is nothing more important to me than capturing some of the happiest moments with loved ones.
Thank you all for letting me be a part of that with you!
And last but not least, because of some of the best friends and 2nd photographers I know, I was able to get some GREAT behind the scenes photos this year! Thank you all (you know who you are) for helping this year and for taking pictures of me WITH my couples! I love that I have these to remember always.
This is one of my favorites – 3 of my past couples in ONE image!
(picking me up just happened to be THEIR idea too!)
And with that, all I can say is THANK YOU! To everyone pictured above and those behind the camera, I can never thank you enough for helping to make 2016 one of the BEST years YET in my career. It has encouraged me so much to know that what I do makes so many people happy.
Thank YOU all for doing the same for me!
HAPPY 2017!!! Cheers and HUGS to you all, for a wonderful MEMORY-FILLED year to come!
