Once again, I’m spicing things up a bit and changing my “best of” posts. Have I mentioned that I love change? Well, anywho, I thought it would be fun to include a few “best of” pictures that weren’t necessarily client photos from 2014 just to have a little fun with the list. Why not? So, let’s get started with a quick look back at a few of my favorite photos from 2014….
Best Snow (and maybe best stocking cap)
Playing in the snow with my best girl in February 2014. I wore her little fuzzy butt out chasing ball and convinced her to take a selfie. That tongue makes my heart just bust with love for this baby.
Best Throwback Thursday
In honor of Mother’s Day this little gem hit the blog. For some reason I feel like this photo has borderline candidacy for an Awkward Family Photo submission.
Best Footwear at a Wedding
Handmade and beautiful, I loved this foot jewelry at Paul & Jenn’s Ivy Place Wedding!
Best Lomography/Film Shot
2014 was my first year playing around with lomography and I had a great time seeing what my little handmade plastic camera could capture.
Best Home Decor Upgrade
Updating our Paris photo wall with framed canvases still makes me smile every time I walk into the room. Love these!
Best Local Find
Julia’s Cafe – a used books and coffee store benefiting Habitat for Humanity. Such an awesome little place!
Best Use of Gamecock fandom in a Photo
Morgan & Eric earn “Best Of” for being awesome Gamecock fans.
Going on the zipline tour at the USNWC for my birthday was truly an adventure that I’ll never forget!
Driving up to The Biltmore for a much needed Daycation was awesome. Clean mountain air, beautiful views and no agenda.
I can’t really say enough about these amazingly delicious cinnamon rolls by The Pioneer Woman. I’m still trying to work off the calories, but man, were they worth it.
Best use of Winthrop Fandom in a Photo
Kathryn & Justin get “best of” for their usage of my alma mater (and theirs) in their engagement and wedding photos. Easily one of my most favorite locations. Ever.
Best Dance Floor Bearhug
A Mother-Son dance turned Mother-Son-Wife dance – awesome!
Best Natural Lighting
The breezeway between the bridal suite and the groom’s room was quite possibly my most favorite place in all of North Carolina. Seriously.
Best Cake Smash
In addition to having their wedding at the location with the best natural lighting breezeway, Mandi & Mike also win “Best of” for their cake eating efforts. Well done you two!
Best Dancing Hair
I seriously considered growing my hair out just so I could do this on the dance floor. Alas, I’d need to be able to dance as well.
Best New Wedding Product
I’ve gotten such awesome feedback from my new album vendor this year! Yay for finding great companies to work with!
No question about it – I still believe that the All Souls Trilogy is the best series I’ve ever read. So best book of the year goes to her final installment, The Book of Life. Love it.
Best Blog Post of 2014 (based on visits)
Paul & Jenn’s Ivy Place Wedding was the most popular blog post of 2014 by about 200 page views. May at The Ivy Place is hard to beat!
Thanks to everyone who made 2014 an amazing year for me and my business! Best wishes to a wonderful 2015!
