2021 Year in Review| Ventura Wedding Photographer
Well, 2021 is already over. While 2020 was a year of wedding postponements and cancellations, 2021 was a year of "We don't want to wait anymore" with a lot of weddings and also bigger celebrations of elopements that had already happened in 2020. Actually, about half of my couples this year were already legally married! Lots of engagement sessions, and some family and maternity sessions sprinkled in. It's so cliché, but gosh what a cool job to witness the most beautiful moments in people's lives. Time keeps moving, but these photos are little snippets of time made still.
My biggest word of advice for 2022 and beyond, is take photos. And I don't mean you have to hire a professional. We are so fortunate to have phones on our cameras that we have easy access to every day. Take the photos of the small things as well as the big, and then PRINT THEM, or use a digital photo frame. We just got a Google Hub that displays my favorite photos, and I am so happy looking at it every day and cycling though so many beautiful moments in my life that would otherwise be buried in a digital pile.
I make a book every year of personal favorite photos, but I also make a book of my professional work. In addition to showing it to potential clients, I am so proud of the work that I do and the art that I make, and I love looking back on the couples and families who have trusted me to photograph their lives.
