A Look Back at 2010

To my beautiful brides - past, present and future - who have dreamed and planned and poured yourselves into your wedding days, opened a door of friendship to me, invited me into your inner circle, treated me like family, shared your greatest joys and frustrations, encouraged me with your enthusiasm and simply loved your husbands with all that is in you

To the grooms who have laughed with, cried with, supported and loved their wonderful ladies, watched them with awe in their eyes, held them close and chased their worries and fears away

To the fathers who have proudly walked their daughters down the aisle

To the mothers who have wiped away silent, happy tears

To the grandparents who have held hands and watched their children's children promise to give each other what you have already given to each other

To the bridesmaids who have hugged me tight and the groomsmen who have tried to convince me to dance

To the ring bearers and flower girls who fight exhaustion with all your might and dance the night away

To the little brother who danced like Usher and looked like Justin Beiber

To the couple who met at a disco and 35 years later still loves to dance, even to Shakira

To the guests who endured the rain to watch two young lovers give their lives to each other

To my couples who have have been courageous enough to share your love stories with me and allowed your love to be captured on camera

Thank you. Your passion both for your families and for my work has empowered me to be a better wife, photographer and friend. I am truly better for having known you, and I cannot thank you enough for trusting me to document the most precious moments of your lives. I get to wake up every day excited about my job because of you. This journey would not be as exciting, fun and full of joy without you. Your stories are not forgotten. You are not just faces in a crowd. You have impacted me in a powerful way, and I cannot forget the joy that you have shared with me. From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

To celebrate the end of another wedding season, I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite wedding photos from this year. Enjoy!
