- We've had a lot of good things happen in 2008 and it's on nights such as these that one sits and remembers back on the year.
We launched Dynamite Weddings in February - a huge lift off the ground and it's grown by leaps and bounds.
We've had several of our weddings featured locally in Sacramento Magazine's Our Wedding and Sierrastyle's Real Weddings. We continue to have success in the Sacramento Bride and Groom Cover contest. We shot the cover model shoot for Sierrastyle's Real Weddings in the spring. We'll be featured in an upcoming issue of Today's Bride. And Ines Del Mar, a national publication, has picked us up to be featured in one of their columns (the team of The Memory Journalists, Blooms by Martha Andrews, and Arcularius Events) - this will be the third time! And we had a small feature in Brides Northern California in the Spring too.
One of our biggest accomplishments of the year was being asked to advertise in Grace Ormonde's Wedding Style Magazine and being add to their Platinum List of professionals.
We've recently been added to Modern Photographers of Northern California.
We've continued with several fashion shoots this last year and it really has been a pleasure working with the many models that have graced our images with their beauty. The same goes to all our portrait and wedding clients. I had a tough (really tough) picking my favorite images of the year since I have so many. And each of you has been a blessing to get to know.
We increased the size of our team by double this year. And we're in the middle of our winter bootcamp sessions to help better train and learn from each other.
I blog posted 275 times this year! A huge improvement over last year's measly 178.
I was able to attend a workshop midsummer and learn from two great photographers and they've encouraged me to step even further outside that box. You'll see some images in the below slideshow that you may not have ever seen before.
I wanted to say a quick thank you to everyone you helped make the year a success.
First of all, to the Memory Journalists team - I couldn't do it without you. To all our clients - somehow we were destined to meet and mingle and become friends; and thank you for trusting me with your precious memories. To all those wedding professionals out there that help make each event a success; and a special thank you to Bella Donna Bridal, Stephanie J Designs, and Blooms for collaborating on a few special projects with me. To Bree - Thanks for getting my PR rolling. To NJ - words don't express enough how much I appreciate all you do. To my friends and family - who have dragged me away more often this year to enjoy life. And to Cory - the best year yet and more to come. I love you.
