Best Wedding Photography Sessions of 2008

Wow! 2008 was such a great year! Looking back I had some amazing couples who had some fabulous weddings. Thanks to all my Chelsea Elizabeth Photography clients for inspiring these art pieces. I selected some of my favorite images from my 2008 weddings to provide a year end review. You’ll see some variety from getting ready, details, portraits and photojournalistic moments. I’d like to say I’m a photojournailst, but I’m really such a blend. I love it all! Each part of your day is so important, from every detail to every guest. I believe the role of the wedding photographer is to capture these memories not only for the bride and groom, but for future generations. It’s not just about the vows, commitments and details… it’s also about getting together and celebrating with family and friends. I love witnessing the moments between guests that can’t be scripted or planned, and when captured create a priceless piece of art that will be handed down from generation to generation. This is why I do what I do and feel so honored to make a living at it.
