2015 flew by so fast! It seems like just yesterday, 2015 was around the corner and we were gearing up for a New Year. At that time, we had only been in business for a month, and were anxious about 2015. How many weddings would we get the chance to shoot? How many new and interesting families would we meet? Would people continue to like our work as we grew as photographers?
Our first 'big' event was a gorgeous vintage-inspired wedding at Alhambra Hall. It was the perfect first introduction for what large weddings entailed and looked like for us- and we fell completely in love with every aspect of the wedding day.
After that wedding, spring came and went oh so fast. We had our share of ups and downs. Some mistakes were made and new experiences were shared. Because of these springtime 'growing pains', Woven Strands Photography became better then we could have hoped for. All of our spring brides took a chance on us, and for that we are oh so grateful.
During this time, we found out we were pregnant with our first child! We were worried about our future couples and how they would react, and how our business would fare, but our summer & fall brides embraced our growing family and trusted us still to document their beautiful days. These fall & summer weddings is when our style finally came to completion. Photo-journalistic, bright & airy with a hint of drama.
In October, we welcomed our new baby, Joy Elise. In those months following, we took a break from the intensity of weddings and got to focus on the families who choose us to document their lives.
Tonight, the final night of 2015, we pick up where we started. We're joining a beautiful couple tonight at Alhambra Hall to celebrate their 'I do's' until the New Year comes ringing. What better way for us to celebrate a year full of challenged, change, and growth!?
Woven Strands Photography has grown much more in 2015 then us two newly-wed, starry-eyed photographers could have even imagined in the beginning of 2015. We are so grateful to God for his continuous favor, for our brides & grooms for their trust and referrals, and of course the families who encourage us and allow us to document another beautiful stage of life.
It's been a good year, 2015. Here's to many more!!
