WHATA YEAR Y’ALL! It’s been a monumental journey in our business throughout the year of 2017. There have been lots of high points and some hard times for sure but we are ending the year feeling more empowered than ever. We are officially both full time with AL Weddings which has been a huge dream for 5 years! If you remember Alex became full-time last year before Jaxon was born and Sara did the same thing almost exactly a year later. It certainly felt good to drop the weight of a separate career to give this one all we have & neither one of us has looked back since. We photographed 27 Weddings this year … like WHAT?! 27 couples that came to us and trusted us with treasured memories that will last beyond their lifetime. This can be easy to forget. Social media can beg so much of us. Make us feel that whatever someone else is posting is “perfection” or if we don’t post that client will certainly never find us. Although a necessary outlet; 2017 social media begged more of us virtually than ever before and it is something we are definitely organizing for 2018 & giving ourselves lots of GRACE. (&& We think you should too! Check out this amazing read to help you get the sense of “who cares?”)
We were blessed to travel to all 4 sides of the United States this year. From our sweet home Alabama, to the Gulf coast – a couple of times, a hop skip & a jump to Portland, OR, and all the way back to Charleston. We ended the travels in Hawaii this year. Which is a travel story for another day & another year so stay tuned! We landed space on some of our favorite blogs this year like Southern Weddings & Style Me Pretty. We went from there to find out that 1 out of the 4 2018 Alabama Weddings Cover is one of our very own images. LANDING A COVER ON A HUGE MAGAZINE! After looking through each and every wedding (& engagement) we are so excited for what 2017 has brought our way and we are just so thankful for everyone & their support! We hope you enjoy some highlights of our most favorite moments from the weddings of 2017.
