I shot my first wedding of 2016 on January 1st, and my last one is this afternoon, December 31st. It’s been an amazing year! I also did tons of portraits: newborn babies, families big and small, couples, high school seniors, and even a dog or two! Here are my best images of the year, month by month. If you’re one of my lovely clients and you don’t see your picture here, don’t feel bad. I chose my best images of the year for this list, not my best clients! (You’re ALL the best!) Not counting yesterday’s wedding and the one I’m doing later today, I delivered 6,840 wedding images and 1,181 portraits in 2016, not to mention all other jobs I did, like head shots, commercial work and fashion stuff! Needless to say, it was tough narrowing all of that down to just 12 images! Enjoy!
A slight departure from my usual style of Colorado Springs senior photography! I did this fun shoot for Bridal Elegance last Tuesday, featuring dazzling prom fashions modeled by teenagers from local high schools. Oh and a couple of cute puppies too! We did these in various locations downtown, and everyone did great! Just look at all these gorgeous kids! We had so much fun!
You can see more photos from this shoot on my Facebook page HERE. All of these gorgeous prom dresses, jewelry, tuxes and more can be found at Bridal Elegance and Gentlemen’s Choice Tuxedos, 2415 N Academy Blvd, in Colorado Springs (website and map HERE).
I received this incredibly nice message a few days ago from one of my past brides. Her husband is an Air Force fighter pilot and they’ve relocated a few times since the wedding. I can’t express how uplifting it was to get this random little love note out of the blue! I’ll let you in on a little secret: owning a business isn’t always easy. But I am reminded constantly, in big ways and little ways, why I chose this career. I want each and every one of my wonderful clients to know how much I appreciate YOU. Thank you for making 2015 a fun, crazy roller coaster ride, like every year! Thank you for trusting me to document your most important moments! Happy New Year to you and the ones you love. I hope your 2016 is, well, a fun, crazy roller coaster ride! Cheers! Tamera
Jonathan’s parents are old friends of mine, which means I’ve known him since he was a little dude. I’m still wrapping my brain around the fact that he’s so grown up! Great looking portraits, Jonathan! It’s always great seeing you!
