I know I'm a month late, but I read somewhere that January was just a trial run for the new year, so I think I'll adopt that philosophy. Even though we have already begun 2016, this past year was so wonderful for us, that I just had to take a moment to reflect.
We had so many awesome clients in 2015 that I don't even know where to begin. We photographed weddings in 5 states in incredible venues from lavish 5 star hotels, beautiful barns, the beach, to simple backyard affairs.
Perhaps a great summary of how blessed we were with wonderful clients and weddings and beautiful venues this past year would be how many of those weddings were recognized by national wedding blogs and publications. I made a commitment this year to share our clients' hard work and great taste with the world through submissions and was thrilled with how many were selected.
Just before we moved back to Indiana, Morgan and Caitlyn's wedding was selected for the Knot's 50 Weddings 50 States feature, which also appeared in the Knot's Spring/Summer print magazine published in January 2016. On top of that, we had weddings published on the Knot's blog, WeddingWire's blog, MunaLuchi Bridal Blog, Demetrios, Savvy Deets Bridal Blog, and Crazy Beautiful Weddings Blog.
I hate tooting our own horn (as my mother liked to say), but because of the feedback and recognition we received from our fabulous couples, we received the WeddingWire Couple's Choice Award again as well as were named among the Best of Gwinnett before moving back to Indianapolis. Then, to top it all off, 6 months after moving back to Indianapolis, we were named one of the Best Wedding Photographers in Indianapolis!
This blog post is beginning to feel gross to write because even if we didn't receive one recognition what we do would still be important, and we would still love it. Everyone's wedding day that we photograph is fabulous and we are so honored to be preserving their memories for a lifetime! We just feel so blessed to be able to do what we love by providing such an important service to others.
As we look forward to the 2016 season we are attending classes and improving our skills so that next year can be our best year yet!

I'll end with a few of our favorite moments from 2015
We love capturing the moments getting ready for the big day, especially when we allow for a special moment for the bride to see her daddy for the first time.
Oh all the gorgeous flowers we have seen this year. Bonus: can you believe the purple flowers in the middle are made of paper?!?
Yes, even a few rivalries...
All of our brides were gorgeous and grooms so dapper.
We loved the variety of venues where we were able to shoot this year, including the Seminole's Stadium, Martin Luther King's former church, and the beach!
Austin always does a great job hanging with the guys and documenting their "guy time."
We also shot in gorgeous hotels...
...and even on the Colt's practice field!
Some of the many details of the year:
The Indianapolis Statehouse is a gorgeous venue for a wedding.
We loved the reception entrances.
...and romantic first dances.
The guests always know how to bring the party!
There were so many great exits as well.
