Best of 2010

(slightly belated) …2010 flew by…I know we say that every year but with an international move and a whole lotta travel, I feel like I blinked and it’s over!  It was a very good year…full of growth, friends, family and really wonderful clients.  Here are a few (ok, more than a few) of my favorites!

The year started on January 2 with the beautiful but frigid wedding of our dear friends Cali and Josiah.  As a photographer (Selah Photography) Cali was not willing to compromise for her pictures and thus did all of their wedding portraits outside.  In the snow.  And 11 degree temperatures.  For two hours.  …and this is why:

So many things can change in one years time.  We’ve learned a lot, and can’t wait to do it all over again (even better) in 2011.  Thank you to each and every my clients who made this year so incredible!
