To my dearest Adam,

Do you remember that day back in college before we started dating when you came into my office at the newspaper and told me you had been asked to quit photography? Do you remember what I said? God had given you the ability to tell people’s stories through a lens in a very unique and beautiful way and that gift needs to be shared with the world. I then demanded that you not quit… Is that when you decided to ask me out on a date? 😉

I think its safe to say that you made a really good decision by sticking with photography. And even through all of the hurtles, road blocks, and brick walls we faced this past year and the parts of 2011 we would love to forget, we have to remember there were SO many amazing parts we shared together. The year ended on such an amazing note and the first week of the new year is looking AMAZING!

This past year you took your photography to a whole new level. Words cannot describe how extremely proud and blown away I am by the work you have produced. There is only one way to go from here and that’s UP. We can’t look back on the past we have to continue to grow and look ahead to what the future has in store for us.

This week the industry took notice as well. Out of 5,000 entries only 50 photos were chosen as the “best wedding photos of the year,” by Junebug Weddings and your photo was among them. Can you believe it? Your photo was among images from some of the world’s best wedding photographers, some of whom we are lucky enough to call our friends. You are a part of Junebug’s Best of the Best for 2011! And since you have such a hard time bragging about yourself, I’ll do it for you!

So, today we’ll celebrate you (and a little bit of me ;)) and some of our awesome features we’ve had the last few months! I can’t wait to see what you’ll come up with this year… our couples are going to be SO ecstatic!

Love always, Imthiaz

2011 will most certainly be a memorable year for us. We have met so many amazing couples and we have watched them cry, laugh, shout, hug, love, fight, kiss, and cry some more. Thank you to all the couples that chose us to document their day, and most of all, thank you for the trust. This year has held many challenges for us. We will carry on though with a true love in our hearts, and a burning desire to tell the story. Without further ado. Here is just a small glimpse of some of our favorite wedding images of the year, in no particular order of course.

 

 

When she first contacted us she wasn’t looking for a photographer. She was helping plan her friends wedding. But, one thing lead to another and things started to fall into place. Kristin found out that Adam and I were married at the Manor House many, many years ago and we just clicked with her. We felt like she was an old friend and we knew we were meant to document her wedding.

Kristin and Chris’s wedding would be the first time that Adam and I would be back at the Manor House since we were married there almost nine years ago. We wouldn’t have had it any other way. Kristin, Chris, their families, and their AMAZING friends made this summer something special. We’ve gotten to know them at a few different weddings and each wedding keeps getting better and better. We are so blessed Kristin stumbled into our lives because this group of friends truly embraced us like family and make our job so much fun.

Kristin and Chris are such amazing people and so in love. Their ceremony was one of the most heartfelt and hilarious we’ve ever witnessed! They knew right from the very beginning they were meant to be together and share their lives together.
