It’s a little earlier than usual but I thought seeing as my 2011 wedding season (as far as actual shooting goes) officially came to an end with Faiz&Sarah’s amazing Philadelphia wedding a few weeks back, that now would be a good time to do my annual selection of a few of my favorite wedding images from the year. It has truly been an incredible year and in this collection there is images from literally all over the world. I truly am so blessed to be able to do this for a living! This realisation has been near to me throughout the year. I am so thankful! I am especially thankful to my couples (for trusting me, and allowing me to be me) and the incredibly talented people in the industry I have had the the privilege of working with in 2011. It would be a very long list if I were to list everyone here but seriously to each one of you, thank you so much! I owe so many so much! So here is my collection of some of my favorite wedding images from 2011. My best from the streets in 2011 can be see HEREBEST OF 2010 COLLECTION.[mp_share_center]
