Hi, friends!! Happy New Year!!

We indulged in one heck of a winter break and kind of feel like we’re emerging from a serious hibernation right about now! Does anyone else feel the same way?! We’ve successfully taken down all of the Christmas decorations, purged the closets and set actionable goals for ourselves, and are feeling pretty pumped to welcome 2017!

One of our favorite ways to start a new year is to reflect back on all of the highlights the past year held. They always say you can’t move forward until you know where you’ve been, and even though these posts are so time consuming to put together, they’ve become some of the most special posts to us and a tradition we can’t go on without!

We’re kicking off the week by sharing our favorite engagement and anniversary photos of the year, and as we were putting this one together, we were reminded of all the incredible couples we had the pleasure of serving, and all the amazing places this year took us! We had so many destination engagements and anniversaries this year!

From the streets of Prague, to the English countryside, from the California coast to the shores of Annapolis, from the monuments of our nation’s capitol, to the rolling hills of Georgia, to the romantic Italian villa overlooking Tuscany, this has really been a year we will never forget! We love photographing destination sessions, and get so inspired shooting in new places, but we also love shooting where we feel most at home: right in the middle of our Arizona desert.

Regardless of where we shot this year, the one thing that rings true as we look through at these photos is we feel so incredibly thankful for the people in this post. We can’t say thank you enough to each and every Amy and Jordan Couple for choosing us to capture their love through our lens. Here’s just over a hundred of our favorite engagement and anniversary photos from 2016!
