It's funny looking back over these how I went all of over the map as far as temperature extremes go. I worked through 100-degree heat for an outdoor wedding in August, to fresh snowfall and below freezing temperatures for a December wedding. There was also one wedding where it rained most of the day and at the 11th hour, the entire congregation was moved quickly outdoors to indoors. We just rolled with the punches though, and got great images all along the way!

I also want to give a shoutout to all my 2nd shooters/assistants/job shadowers for 2010. You all made my job easier and we're good sports throughout! Thanks so much for your love of photography and weddings, for helping me out, and for your passion to learn more! Here's to James, Dylan, Kara, Tricia, Laura, & Jeremy!

I still have about half my calendar open for weddings in 2011, so if you happen to get engaged over the holidays, give me a call or shoot me an email right away! I think it will fill up quickly after the first of the year!
