Happy New Year! I  realize that January is nearly over, but I consider the entire month of January to still be the start of the New Year. I mean, we haven't even gotten to experience 11/12 of it yet! This year, I have decided that I'm doing New Year's goals instead of New Year's resolutions. "Resolution" is almost a dirty word these days! So instead, I have written down a list of personal goals and business goals for this year. An actual written-down list. To keep me accountable. And on track. I hope.

We don't break the rules often. But special circumstances call for exceptions! With this engagement session, we broke ALL the rules. 1. Only shoot right before sunset. 2. Don't shoot on holidays. 3. NEVER shoot when it rains. 4. Only shoot when the temperature is between 50 and 80 degrees. Yeah, we broke every single one of those. And you know what? I'd do it again. This special New Year's Eve engagement session turned out to be one of our favorites!

There's something so special about the New Year. It's full of new beginnings, new chances, new opportunities, new goals. The start of a new year brings a fresh wealth of as yet unknown experiences. These special moments are full of potential,  just waiting to happen. April and Reggie knew that they wanted this year to be extra memorable. They started it off right with a sparkling New Year's Eve wedding! They celebrated this intimate affair with only their closest loved ones. What better way to ring in the start of a brand new year than with a brand new marriage?

They were worth the wait. Nearly an entire year ago, Lauren and Anthony tied the knot on a gorgeous New Year's Eve. What better way to celebrate their love than by bringing in the New Year as husband and wife?! Every detail was perfect. Every flower was gorgeous. But nothing was more perfect, more beautiful, than the stunning bride, her gorgeous groom, and their glowing love.
