Iowa & Destination Wedding Photographer | Best of 2012 Weddings

To say that 2012 was awesome would be an under-statement.  I travelled all over, including out of the country to Jamaica for amazing weddings.  Had experiences I never dreamed of having, all because of my career.  I am extremely blessed!  Because of all of these amazing experiences and amazing couples I got to meet and hang out with, I had a very hard time choosing which photos to blog.  Do I blog more of the photojournalistic types of photos?  Do I go for the artistic portraits?  I ended up picking a mix of them.  There are reasons I love both types of photos.  I love every aspect of weddings.  They are filled with such love and emotion and are presumably the happiest moment (or one of them) in people’s lives.  I get to be there and photograph that.  THAT is my job.  To have a good time and photograph people in love.  I can’t complain.  So, I give you my favorites from 2012.  These are not in any order and are randomly mixed up.

I am looking forward to another amazing year.  2013 is already all booked up, save for a couple weekends here and there.  I am now booking for 2014.  Bring on the new year!
