Wow! 2012 was quite a year! When we started reviewing all of our weddings and engagement sessions from the past year, I kept saying, “Wait – that was THIS year??” It has been a long, incredible year filled with some wonderful memories with sweet couples (and their amazing friends and families)!
We began and ended the year in south Florida (almost ended up being the same venue!). It was a great start and a great end, and everything in between was equally awesome! There were countless moments of laughter, tears, and a ton of kisses! We traveled across the U.S. and the Caribbean. There were rainbows and sunsets of every color, oceans and mountains (and even a shoot in the desert). Our couples said, “I do!” in the churches they grew up in, with their toes in the sand, and in beautiful gardens. Their nuptials followed the customs of different religions, and they carried on family traditions (some even started new ones). Most of them were just beginning their lives together, while one special couple celebrated 25 beautiful years of marriage with a vow renewal! Each wedding was so unique and special, but all of them full of LOVE!
2012 was also a year of big changes for us. This past summer, we decided to make the huge move from Florida to California. It’s so crazy to think we used to fly out here for weddings, and now we’re doing the reverse! We really ove being wedding wedding photographers in Temecula! We spent almost 200 hours traveling for weddings in 2012 (whoa!). Fortunately, Matt and I are travel junkies, and the distance only made it even sweeter to see our couples again!
When we collected our favorite photos from the past year, we felt that there was one song that tied all the special memories and all the travel together. Warm and special thanks to all of our 2012 couples for allowing us to share your joy! This song is dedicated to you!
And to our 2013 couples, we look forward to all the wonderful new memories we’ll make together! Cheers to the new beginnings and new adventures! : )
