The New Year began with a bang when I opened my email and discovered I’d been named to The Knot’s Best of Weddings 2017. This is the eighth consecutive year that couples have named me to their best wedding photographer list (omg!), and I’m beyond humbled by the folks who’ve invited me into their lives over the past decade+ of my doing this. The press release is below.
