The past year was great for so many reasons. It was my first full year of being married, we welcomed our son Jaxon into the world and then there were so many couples, mothers, fathers, wedding parties and more that made my weekends so much fun. The more time you spend around people on the happiest days of their lives, the more optimism you have for the future. And for an eternal optimist like me, that makes for a perpetually exciting future.
I spent hundreds of hours editing photos throughout the year. My initial edit for this post saw 212 photos, which is just way too many. I had so many favorites, but for one reason or another, these are the shots that stood out to me. They might not be my best in some cases, but they are surely the ones I think about when I think of the 2012 wedding season.
