Best of 2016 // Weddings, Portraits, Engagements, Anniversaries, Couples in Love! // Western US Adventure Wedding + Elopement Photographer

Joshua Tree National Park couple session // california adventure wedding photographer //

As I started writing our 2016 In Review post, I quickly realized I was going to have to dedicate that entire post to our personal/adventure photography because it was already long enough! So, I decided to do a separate "best of" post for our professional photography! Also, if you just read last week's post, you might think our lives are all play and no work which is definitely not true!

This year has been absolutely amazing for Abbi Hearne Photography! We grew in ways that I couldn't have possibly imagined this time last year. We've made incredible friends, worked with inspiring clients, and learned countless new skills that have improved our photography so much. We're so thrilled to have grown our photography around the western US, shooting engagements and anniversary sessions in amazing places, like Kristen + Eric's photos in Zion National Park, Katy + Andres' couples session in Joshua Tree National Park, and Sara + Jaimie's anniversary session in Yosemite National Park, just to name a few! We also shot a handful of weddings including Hunter +Michael's gorgeous garden wedding in Austin and Connie + Colton's perfectly romantic winter wedding last month. We met some great new friends, like Sylvan + Michelle, who jumped off a 400 foot cliff together moments after he proposed (!!!) and Clair + Alex, who come off as pretty edgy (pun intended, Clair is a professional BASE jumper) but are actually the biggest goofballs ever. We even did photos for some random strangers from Denmark, simply because they were there (and the session we had booked cancelled on us) so shout out to Amanda + Kristian for making my Banff dreams come true and running around Moraine Lake with us!

I could honestly go on for days about all the amazing people we've worked with and how much we've loved working on and growing this no-longer-so-little business over the past year, but I think it's best to just shut up and show you! So, without further adieu, the best of 2016:

Thank you all for an amazing year!! We are so excited to see where 2017 brings us!
