Friends, I am SO thrilled to post this today!! My BEST photographs of 2018! I know it took some time to get to, because in the off season I’m also catching up with my accounting before tax season (boo!), setting up new workflow systems, meeting with new clients, and so on. I’ll have to post about that sometime I know a lot of people are curious about what photographers do in their off season. My first wedding of 2019 is only weeks away- I can’t believe it- so it is definitely time to share this little recap!
I worked so hard to curate all these photos! It’s SO hard to choose and I wanted to include all my clients from this past year and the best from all their sessions I also included images from some of the styled shoots I did, there were 4 this year alone!
This was my first season shooting in Central New York and I have to say it BLEW ME AWAY. There was so much beauty, diversity of landscape, and amazing adventurous couples! I also worked with a few sweet clients from the Hudson Valley and Derek and I traveled for those
So there is a lot of diversity pictured here and honestly I am just so humbled and honored to have had such an amazing first season up here. This really is my new home and having my business thrive like this is a blessing that I never take for granted.
I hope you love these images and it inspires you as we look forward to 2019! I am so excited for another wonderful season ahead!
The perfect “leading” image – these two are just adorable and Highland Forest never disappoints!
Loved this amazing forest in Chenango Valley and this LIGHT!
My first styled shoot of this past year, these colors were amazing (and who knew coral would be the Pantone Color of the Year 2019?!) Thank you Carianne for all your hard work planning!
