2012 – Wedding + Portrait Favorites back to posts


Engagement

Ah, the daunting task of creating a ‘best of’ list. As mentioned in my previous post (my favorite personal images of 2012), I thought it would be a little more appropriate to make lists of the images I loved the most, rather than what I considered to be the overall ‘best’. Some of these have technical issues that one might otherwise consider to be on anything BUT a ‘best of’ list..

In my personal opinion (and let me go on record for saying this), if a photograph makes you feel something, anything, consider it a success.

I began with 264 of my favorites and had originally wanted to whittle it down to my favorite 50. That didn’t happen. Not by a long shot. Below are over 100 of my favorite wedding, portrait, and other work related images of 2012. Some film, some digital, and I love every single one of them. I really hope you enjoy going through them, and I would love to hear what you think so please leave a comment below!

To my future clients: What you see below is not only what I do, but who I am. If these resonate with you as they do with me, we’re going to get along just fine.

Update: I just posted my Top 100 Best Images of 2013. Take a look!
