It's 2018. That means 2017 is last year. Last year, I took a lot of photos, I met a lot of incredible people, I worked with some amazing artists, and I loved every second of it. From a sunrise-ceremony to a destination wedding in beautiful Florence, Italy, the opportunities I had last year were beyond what I ever expected when I got into wedding photography. Here's to hoping 2018 brings even more awesome adventures and memories.
I'd be a fool not to thank the people who made 2017 such an unbelievable year. First, my wife Melissa, thank you for your unending support and for helping me to keep improving. Dennis of Dennis Pike Photography, thank you for the increasingly amazing opportunities you've provided me over the last 6 years of working with you (like taking me to freaking Italy to second shoot for you,) and thank you for letting me beat you in golf so often last summer. Tommy of Forever North Photography, it was a blast getting to work with you a few times last year, and I'm looking forward to continuing kicking asses next year. Brandon, thank you for all your hard work and dedication on the weddings we shot last year. Anna, thank you for bringing a fresh outlook and unique style to the shoots we work together. Mark, thank you for taking the time to give me a hand in a pinch (shaka shaka.)
Most of all, thank you to all of the wonderful couples who put their trust in me to capture one of the best days of their lives. It still amazes me, and it will probably always amaze me, that I'm able to do something creative that I thoroughly enjoy doing as a profession. Thank you for giving me this tremendous opportunity. I can only hope that I produce images that make you appreciate as much as I appreciate you.
Now, on to the photos!
