The 2012 wedding season blew away my wildest expectations. Period. I should have known that the people in Northeast Ohio (my old stomping ground!) would be awesome, but I was feeling very unsure of this whole solo photography thing so I didn't want to get my hopes up. Haha! It's ridiculous but that's how I'm wired.
The 12 weddings that I booked myself after October of 2011 were phenomenal, and I'm so blessed to now know these fabulous people. I got to shoot two weddings as a second shooter with my friend and mentor, Amanda Donaho Photography. Working with her is not work at all! And lastly, I got to be a part of one of my best friend's U.S. wedding reception. Talk about an honor.
Without further ado, let me show you some of my favorite wedding images from 2012 and re-introduce you to these beautiful people!
