OhMyGosh.  2016 was such an incredible year.  Over the past week I’ve been going back through all of the weddings we photographed this past year and reliving all of the epic moments.  I really got emotional going through all of them and remembering so many awesome, funny, emotional moments that I got to share and capture.  I pulled a few of my favorite photos.  Seriously it was sooo hard to choose.  Putting the photos all together for this layout made it a little easier because I tried to make it flow.  Plus I chose images that would look good chopped up.  Currently there is a folder on my desktop with hundreds of photos that I didn’t use that I love sooo much.  It was incredibly hard to get it down to this few (There might just be a part 2 filled with awesome reception/dancing/partying photos coming).

This year I really feel like each and every one of our couples went out of their way to make us feel like guests at their wedding.  Not only does this make me feel really special and love my job even more, but it really influenced the type of photos we were able to get.  A lot of our couples this year chose to have first looks and let us set them up which made for some great photos and special moments between the couples.  There were quite a few weddings this year where I stayed past the time we were scheduled for because I was having such a good time dancing, partying and celebrating the newly weds.
At the end of each wedding this year I thought to myself “how is anything else going to top this?”  And somehow there were moments in the next wedding that stood out and made it amazing and unforgettable.  O.k. enough gushing about how awesome my job is and how awesome the couples I get to photograph are (almost).

I am so incredibly thankful to all of the amazing couples that we got to work with this year.  You all absolutely mean the world to me.  It is a lot of trust to put in someone to capture and preserve these memories and it is such an honor each time a couple asks me to do it for them.

So without further ado I present the “Celladora Best of 2016”
