2017 was a year of incredible growth for Jeff and me and this wonderful little company. In the fall of 2016 we realized that Two Of Us had grown bigger and faster than we had ever expected, and I left my full-time job as a newspaper photographer to give each wedding more time and attention.
This was our first full year with me running the business full-time, and the whole year was more relaxing, rewarding, and inspiring for us as a business. We photographed 21 weddings this year- our biggest year yet! Throughout the year we delved more into our photographic and business style, realizing that couples crave both our artful documentary style and the way we strive to get to know each couple we work with before we photograph their wedding. We were also thrilled to be recognized by the international organization Wedding Photojournalists Association for some of our photos.
This year was also a huge year for us personally. We finished building our energy-efficient, timber-frame house that we worked together to design and build. It's been a joy to settle into a place to call all our own (If you want to read about our process, check out this article recently published in Vermont's Seven Days:.
As for the weddings themselves? We found ourselves constantly in awe of each couple we worked with (seriously, we got super lucky this year with awesome people) who made their wedding their own, drama-free, joy-filled day. And now, we'll let the photos do the rest of the filling in.
