Best of 2018: Adirondacks & Upstate NY Weddings | Adirondack Wedding Photographer

As I sit down to type this blog on fresh page day one of 2019 I reflect back on what an amazing year 2018 was. I’ve been rogue with blogging since early fall and it wasn’t for a lack of being lazy. This year was my busiest yet! It was a year of extreme growth, finding my editing style, taking the direction towards focusing on capturing mainly elopements and intimate weddings, creating a better client experience for my couples & families and the first of many transitions with my business.

In total I had 37 bookings this year all while making a move to the Southern Adirondacks, working full-time alongside my photography business and purchasing our first home! I shot at new to me venues such as Longview Lodge, Adirondack Camp, Golden Arrow Resort, Hotel Saranac, Smoke Signals, Spence Cabin and Lanzi’s just to name a few. I knocked an item off my bucket list and captured an elopement in the Great Smoky National Park in Tennessee. I helped secretly coordinate and watched one of my dear friends have a surprise proposal that any little girl dreams about on the shores of South Carolina. I traveled almost 10,000 miles between three states to capture love photographing a total of:

10 weddings

3 elopements

17 engagement/family sessions

2 business shoots

3 second shooting opportunities w/ Julia Rebecca Photography and Nicole Wren Photography

2 Styled Shoots

Looking back picking my top photos to share in this post had me tearing up. I am so thankful and blessed to have worked with such wonderful couples and families who entrusted me with their big day and their memories. A shout out to my fellow wedding vendors, specifically the Adirondack Wedding Vendor world, y’all rock!! We did it, another season down filled with continued fun and friendship! I am forever grateful for each and everyone of you! If this is any outlook on how 2019 will play out I’m bursting at the seams with excitement. I hope you enjoy my highlight reel, if it was up to me and if space allowed I would share every photo from this year because I am just so thrilled with both my personal and business growth!!
