BEHIND THE PHOTO: Larissa and Michael got married at the Hilton near Down Town Disney,fl. After photographing a few shots, we walked down the hall way for a bit more and the bar caught my eye. Yes-the bar. The bartenders and guests were quick to relocate for the photo. Who could say no to this adorable couple and their adorable photographer,haha. I positioned my off-camera flash to the side. The groom mimicked the victory fist from the Breakfast Club movie. Congrats Michael... you scored the babe!
I can honestly say 2013 was the year of increase for me. Increase in freelancing gigs, personal relationships, and spiritual growth in my faith. So many blessings. Before I jump into the new year, I wanted to go through my archive and pick some of my favorites from the past year. These moments explain why I adore what I do. I've worked with many many couples this year. 20 wedding photography clients and 3 wedding video clients.
I hope my words encourage you to dream big in 2014. My prayer for all who are reading this is to have a prosperous new year!
The day after I finished my college finals I left flat and humid Florida for the mountainous and freezing California. Yep-California! I visited with my good friend, Holly, her sister, and brother in-law in La Verne. Also, I had the chance to spend a day with another good friend, Hansong. The plus side of having good friends move away is I have a reason to fly across the country,haha. I can't express how much this trip meant to me. God knows my heart's desire and He is so faithful! You would think that it's sad and heartbreaking to have good people removed from your life (And it really is) , but God has a plan! He made a way for me to make this trip, so I took it. By the way, I had a lot of "firsts" during this trip. This is my first time flying alone, FLYING TO CALIFORNIA ALONE, meeting Holly's brother-in law, wine tasting, riding horses with my best friend near the mountains, eating In&Out, etc….it was a pretty awesome time. I'm so thankful for Holly, Christa, Nick and Hansong! Now I'm back in flat and humid Florida, but I'm not totally disappointed. I'm excited for what God has planned for me next. It's probably to write follow up e-mails to clients and get back to work,haha. Anyways, I'll leave you with this…keep an open heart and mind because God's plan is so much bigger than you would ever imagine.
