Happy Monday, friend! Can you believe it’s already the LAST day of 2018?! I certainly can’t. This year has flown by! I’ve been spending this last week of 2018 with my family. Between the quality time with them, I’ve been looking through ALL of my favorite images from the year. I photographed 11 weddings for some pretty amazing couples! I cannot thank them all enough for being awesome humans that make being a wedding photographer so fun! Picking images for this post was so HARD! I have so many favorites. Narrowing them down into one blog post was difficult! Be prepared for lots of gorgeous images below!
Personally, this year will be one of my favorites ever! We welcomed our son, Rowan, into the world in March. Balancing marriage, photography and two kids has been a little crazy at times, but so, so worth it! I love being a mama to my kiddos. I’m thankful every day that I have a job that allows me to do something I love and I get to raise my babies!
This year I did the most traveling I think I’ve ever done in my life! I served wonderful couples, not only in Iowa, but spread across the Midwest! In May I headed south for Brian and Kristen‘s gorgeous Pointe D’Vine wedding in Quincy, Illinois! June led to travels with my hubby, Joey! We experienced a tiny bit of city driving and life together as we joined Aric and Kayla for their destination Chicago engagement session! I also had the joy of traveling to Troy, Missouri to visit Scott and Mandie for their engagement session as well as travel to weddings throughout Iowa!
2018 was fun, but I know 2019 will be even better! I’m looking forward to more time with my kiddos now that I’m not pregnant or have a newborn! We can go play outside when the weather gets nice. Joey and I are celebrating our 5th ANNIVERSARY this year!! Being married is such a joy. It’s one of the reasons I love being a wedding photographer! I get to spend time with brides and grooms on the very first day of their marriage. How cool is that?!
I wish you the very best 2019!
