Family, friends and love. 2013, thank you.

It’s the night before Christmas and I can hear Yen and Ayvia in the other room laughing and screaming. I think Yen is chasing Ayvia around the house from room to room.

I can see kids out on the street riding their bikes around with Dad.

The sun is setting and the sky is a perfect gold.

The breeze is unique. It’s fresh and clean.

It’s that time again.

The time family and friends come together and have some of the best times of their life. They create new memories and reminisce of all the good shared.

I think back 15 months ago when I shot my first wedding, Jason and Tara in 2012. Three months later, the year came to an end and 2013 began.

I would have never envisioned the places I got to visit, the travelling, the car drives, the planes and of course, the people.

And this is why I wanted to thank all of my couples, my friends, for having me.

Thank you for letting me shoot your wedding. Thank you for letting me give you and your family smiles. Thank you for letting me create the memories that will be remembered forever, from generation to generation.

Thank you.

As a photographer, this is my greatest love; The smiles you get when you open your album or walk past that photo hanging on the wall.

I want to share some of my year with you. These photos aren’t in any order.

These are the photos that make me smile.

    It's been a busy year for us and a bit of blur but having these photos to look back really allows the chance to reminisce the good moments and the wonderful people that Rich and I were able to meet and be friends with.
    Looking forward to another year filled with laughter, love and challenges.
