Wedding Photography in Review : 2011

© Jasmine Star. This post cannot be republished without permission. Stealing makes me sad.
oo much. Excess. An overabundance. Of love, happiness, support...and hard work, but I think those things are harmoniously synergistic. This past year was filled with ups, downs, and OHMYGODWHATAREWEDOINGs, but I wouldn't have changed a thing. This is primarily in part to having some of the most amazing clients. Ever.

Being a wedding photographer allows me to live out my dreams, dare to hope, and challenge myself to be a better person. For this, I'm thankful. However, I realize without the love, happiness, and support of clients who believe in my ability, I'm nothing. Here's a look back at some of my favorite wedding photos of 2011...

Here's to hoping, dreaming, and working for an equally as amazing 2012!
