I’m honestly surprised to have time to sit down and write this 2022 recap before the end of the year. To say that 2022 was a whirlwind would be putting it lightly. Those of us in the wedding industry knew coming into this year that it would be a boom of events. This was the first full wedding season since the COVID-19 pandemic began, and with the restrictions on gatherings fully lifted, a record number of weddings were being planned. As such we were expected to take on a record volume of work.
This also happened to be my first full season since going full-time in my business. So it’s hard to draw comparisons because I don’t have any true benchmarks to compare it against.
But I know with absolute certainty that the last 12 months have been a stretch of time to be proud of. My 2022 wedding season began on January 14th and came to a close on December 26th. Altogether I photographed 42 weddings across southern California.
Some of the highlights for my business this year included:
My word for 2022 was “alignment,” and I can say with full confidence that I have never before felt so aligned in all spheres of my life. If you are familiar with my story, you know that while I’ve dreamt of working in the wedding industry since I was a young girl, I never imagined doing so with a camera in my hand. But now, I couldn’t imagine spending my days doing anything else. I am truly so grateful for each opportunity I have to serve my couples in some of the most exciting moments of their lives. To celebrate amongst their dearest friends and family. And to bear witness to the beginning of the incredible legacies they are destined to create together.
Because my schedule kept me especially busy photographing and editing this year, I didn’t have nearly enough time to share more about the beautiful weddings and people I was able to capture. Here are some of my favorite images I captured in 2022. This 2022 recap shows just a fraction of the work I was able to create, and I can’t wait to share more in the future.
