2011 [My] Photo of the Year

It may seem unusual to put a wedding photo as my picture of the year, but this photo has so much below the surface which is what makes it an important one for me. The photo is of my cousin who got married New Year’s Day 2011. They had one photographer for the day and […]

2011 in One Photo

This is easily my favorite photo of 2011. The morning newspaper had a section on the top photos of 2011, and although there were plenty of memorable and tragic moments captured throughout the world, this one of Scott Jones and Alexandra Thomas was one of the viral photos of the year.

I will never forget being so simultaneously nervous and excited to be the one taking photos for my friends’ special day.
