2017 by marissa siebert

What makes being a photographer so special is the people we get to work with. We have had the incredible opportunity to photograph engagements which led to weddings, we have photographed weddings which led to maternity sessions, and we have done maternity sessions which led to family sessions. It’s sharing life in an incredible way with some of the most beautiful and sincere people we have ever met. We celebrate with you when you get engaged, we party with you when you get married, and we feel like our family gets bigger every time yours does. We are so overjoyed with how this year went and couldn’t be more thankful for each of you that chose to share your life with us this year.

As we began to collect our thoughts, deciding which photoshoots to write about this year, we realized it would be impossible to leave out anything! So we've included favorites from every single photo session below that we feel best tell our story of 2017. Each moment you shared with us this year brought with it its own beauty. From traveling up the east coast and photographing in New York City, to exploring the desert and canyons in Utah, to photographing weddings and families in our own hometown in Charleston, to our first trip to the west coast and shooting on California beaches, this year we covered more ground than we ever have before. In 2017 we completed 83 projects, by far the most we have ever been able to do in a year, and after editing all 83 sessions we gave back 32,597 edited photos. THIRTY TWO THOUSAND EDITED PHOTOS! 

You are all beautiful and your lives have brought us so much joy. 2017 was a dream come true and we couldn’t be more thankful for the experiences and the life we shared. 2018 is going to be a year of adventure full of its own beautiful moments and we can’t wait!

Happy New Year!
