2013 Year in Review

From spectacular sunsets to stunning events, new engagements, growing bellies, sleeping babies and large families, 2013 was a year of beautiful diversity! As always, we were thrilled to meet and photograph many lovely people from around the world. Perhaps even more of an honor, we saw many familiar faces in front of our cameras, as many of our clients and friends asked us to photograph them again. We’re so grateful to each and every one of you, as well as those of you reading this who faithfully continue to introduce us to your friends and family members, coworkers and clients. We owe so much to you and give you our sincere thanks!

We’re excited to share with you our 2103 Year in Review! We hope you enjoy some of the photographs we love from each our 2013 weddings, engagements, proposals, and portrait sessions. We had to leave a couple out, but we did throw in a few of our fun commercial / editorial projects. As is our tradition, this is part of our extremely popular voting contest!
