Looking back to a year ago now, I would have never thought I would be where I am now. Over the last 12 months this is what the Lord has done in my life and how He has blessed and grown my business so much!!!!

Photographed over a 160 sessions, captured 24 weddings, was a bridesmaid in 3 weddings, shot my 1st destination wedding, graduated from college, became and RT at Grant, started dating trevor, fell in love, got ENGAGED, bought my 1st car-Honda Civic, vacationed to hilton head, added two more nieces to the family, and met Katelyn James!! It dad a crazy year! Here is a break down of the awesomeness!
I kicked off my wedding year in February! I photographed a total of 24 weddings and was in 3 weddings! I photographed my 1st destination wedding in St. Lucia! I love shooting destination weddings, so if you are planning one send me an email! Overall, It was a wonderful year in my wedding photography business. All 24 of my couples were amazing. I loved being apart of their wedding days and capturing such amazing moments!
In May I graduated from respiratory therapy school! I began working as a therapist at Grant medical center in downtown columbus! I work about 1 day of week still and love being apart of the staff there.
The beginning of June I started dating my future husband, Trevor! We fell in love quickly and we knew we were meant to be with each other! Trevor was the exact man I had been praying for and dreamed of being with! God brought him into my life again at the perfect time. 6 months after we started dating he proposed to me! You can check out our blog post about our engagement here! I am so excited to spend the rest of my life with him! We will be getting married April 26, 2014! Yes that’s right in less then 4 months!!! we are just so excited and don’t want to wait! I also have very little amount of weekends available, so the sooner the better! I can’t even wait! We already have a venue, my dress, and a cater! I will be blogging updates as we continue to plan our wedding.
I had over 160 photo sessions this year, not including my weddings. That is totally awesome! I am so grateful for all the new people I met this year! I am so blessed to be apart of capturing special moments in all of their lives. This was a huge year in my business and I can’t wait to see what 2014 brings!!
In October, we added Reese to our family and in December we added Sophia to our family! I have 5 beautiful nieces and I love spoiling them!
In December, I met Katelyn James. The woman who has inspired me the most in wedding photography! She is not only amazing at photography, but she has an amazing heart for the Lord and is the sweetest person! I loved spending the day with her, learning so much! I can’t wait to start of 2014 right and put into practice some of the things I learned!
Overall, 2013 was an incredible year! The Lord had taught me so much and Challenged me! I could not have asked for a better year. I know 2014 will be another wonderful And I can’t wait to see how I grow through it!
Looking ahead! I already have 16 weddings booked, which is AMAZING! I also am getting married the end of April which is INCREDIBLE! I also will be moving an hour north of columbus. But don’t worry! Majority of my business Is run down here, so I will be back to shoot all the time! You can still count of me! I also already started booking sessions! Lots of new and exciting things are happening this year! I can’t wait for it!
Well! That’s all I have for now! Thank you so much for following along in this journey! I will Be a better blogger this next year I promise! Goals for this years business will be on the blog later this week!
