Wow this year was really a great one! I saw steady growth in Mariel O. Photo and got to meet new people and gain new clientele. Its always hard to pick my favorite images from each session so I started logically - beginning to end. I got to check a lot off my photo bucket list -- January brought me two winter weddings, May a destination wedding (!) and June lovely lakeside nuptials.
Second shooting went well this year too with such amazing and warm/friendly couples and encouraging leads that made me feel that I was doing a good job for them. I also volunteered my services to some worthwhile causes which is also great experience.
The fall which is always busy brought my 2018 couples who I got to do more engagement sessions of. I also did my first holiday mini sessions which was successful and gave me ideas for next year.
I am truly thankful for all the people that let me into their lives this year and really inspired my photography to new heights.
