These photos represent just a small fraction of some of my best wedding photographs I captured in 2016.
Though these photos might feature a unique perspective, dynamic lighting, an incredible location or simply an image captured at the perfect moment, they’ll always embody for me the incredible opportunity I’ve been trusted with to capture the most intimate, genuine moments of life and to touch so many lives.
Thank you so much for being a part of 2016 and helping make it my busiest and best year ever.
2017 is going to be filled with even more amazing moments and I look forward to showcasing every exciting moment right here!
