What a year! 2018 was a whirlwind, but I am so grateful that each one of you were along for the ride. None of these incredible milestones would not have been possible without you. To all my friends who referred me to your recently engaged friends, to all my family who never doubted me since the beginning, to my incredible husband who always encouraged me to keep pushing – seriously, I cannot thank you all enough.

Here’s a small highlight look back on my 2018.


To my amazing clients who trusted me to photograph your day, thank you.

To the beautiful newly engaged couples who trusted me to capture your proposal, thank you. It means the world to me, to capture this incredible moment. I am just incredibly happy to be hidden behind a camera because I am usually always crying happy tears.

Honestly, there’s just so much in 2018 that I can’t even upload every detail and photos without writing a novel. I have some I took this month I haven’t been able to blog about yet, too! I can’t wait to share many more adventures with you all. Thank you, again for amazing 2018.

Oh, and special thanks to our amazing cat, Hubble who have given me sanity even when under incredible stress. My life wouldn’t have been so purrfect, without you. 32325477_10155532277458994_2924533984505364480_o
