Ok, I know I’m late. It’s April. More specifically, we’re already half-way through the month of April and I’m just now getting around to posting my best of post…Better late than never right? lol. I was actually going to forgo this altogether but then I thought…nah, there were some mind-blowing photos that came out of my little studio last year and I really want to share them in a neat little package.

I was so blessed to work with so many amazing couples in 2017. Looking back I’m in awe at how beautiful my clients are and how well they planned their weddings. I’m honored that I captured their love and that I got to share their stories on this blog. It’s been three years since I started my business (2018 will be my third season) and I still can’t believe this is my job. I’m learning a lot every single day and working hard to get better. This has been a challenging journey but when I look back at all of these photos and see all the people I’ve met, it makes it all worth it. It’s an amazing feeling to look back at these photos and think of the time we spent and the photos we produced together.

It’s my hope that you enjoy scrolling through the visual anthology of my work in 2017. 2018 is already off to an amazing start! (You can check out what I’ve been up to so far here, here & here). I’m excited for the rest of the year and I’m delighted that you’re on this journey with me.

I wish you and your loved ones a very happy, prosperous, and loving 2018!

xx, Cass
