2019 is here and I am READY!
I started out the year by being intentional with setting some professional goals. But those had to be inspired by the years of work I have behind me.
When looking back on the past few years of owning my own business, I have to say that 2018 was the best one yet.
I photographed some of the most wonderful couples on their most special day. Between that and working alongside my amazing
team family at Monique Hessler Weddings, I captured 30 weddings and gained friendships from clients who mean so much to me.
When looking back on 2018, it only seems right to share some of my favorite photos. Let’s start with the engagement sessions. All over Phoenix, Arizona! I shot in desert landscapes, groves, backyards and more. Up to northern Arizona in Payson and even to San Jose, California and DISNEYLAND. Let’s take a look..
Now, I mostly only shoot engagements and weddings. But occasionally, I use my camera for more. When I have past clients wanting family photos or lovely friends who need headshots, I definitely make it happen. Here are a few of the other portrait sessions I captured this past year.
And, of course, my favorite. The weddings.
When I started my photography business I thought I would never shoot a wedding. They seemed stressful and I had heard horror stories. Now, it is what I shoot almost exclusively. It is where I am comfortable and what I love to do. The mix of candids, portraits and emotions are something you can’t get anywhere else.
Plus, I have wonderful clients. And I get to be trusted with capturing their most important day so they can look back on their images for years and years to come. It is such an honor and I pinch myself thinking I am dreaming all the time!
Let’s see some of the gorgeous wedding days I was fortunate enough to capture in 2018..
2018, you were wonderful.
This was a year of challenge, growth and learning and I cannot wait to see what 2019 has in store!
