Our Best of 2018 – Wedding & Engagement Photos
Finally, here are some of mine and Sandi’s favorite wedding photos from 2018. Usually, we post this a little earlier in the year but it’s been a busy booking season so posting this late is actually a good thing. I wasn’t going to write anything, but for those that are interested, here’s a quick summary of what 2018 was like for us.
2018 was an interesting one for sure, coming off of our most successful year as a multi-photographer studio. It was still only our third full year as a large studio and because of all the work we put in the year before, it was one where everything simply started to click. All of our lead photographers had an awesome year and we couldn’t be more proud of each of them for putting their hearts and souls into making Twisted Oaks what it is today.
2018 was also a year where we made a move into a new studio that we weren’t really planning to do. I decided to do 99% of the remodeling myself to save on cost which is why it’s just now getting finished after 6 long months. It was a year that allowed Sandi and I to spend more time focusing on our family, our own photography, and our own clients as we didn’t need to be as hands-on with the studio as in the previous years. Our style had slightly changed as did the way we approached each wedding and it showed in our work. It also showed in the final product that we delivered as our clients were overall happier than ever. We even focused on working better together as a husband and wife team, which led to less silent rides home at the end of the night, and even her offering to drive once or twice. I even tried harder not to step in front of her while she was shooting, LOL.
Over the next couple of years, Sandi and I will be cutting back on weddings. As we do, it will be interesting to see how our style continues to evolve. One thing to keep in mind as you scroll through these is that this is a collection of photos that we personally like the best for one reason or another. In most cases, these aren’t the photos that the clients would choose as their favorites. That’s one thing that makes this job so interesting. In the end, it doesn’t matter what we think looks good or how artistic a photo might be to us, if it doesn’t have meaning to the client then we didn’t do our job. As a studio, our primary goal is to capture the wedding day in a storytelling way, filled with photos that we know our clients will love and cherish forever.
So, here it is, a gallery of some of mine and Sandi’s favorite wedding and engagement photos from 2018. We’ll be posting one of these blogs for each of our lead photographers over the next couple of weeks on the Twisted Oaks Associates website and social media. I decided to keep personal photos out of this year’s blog post and just focused on our clients. I may post a separate blog with our favorite personal photos. Also, I promise we did our best to keep it as short as possible so you can make it to the end.
With that being said, here are a handful of our favorites. Enjoy!
