Destination Wedding Photographer Kir Tuben | A Year In Review: 2018

 

This year was surreal. I built my business in ways I never thought possible. I photographed 29 weddings, 61 engagement & lifestyle sessions, 10 boudoir sessions, 2 proposals and 21 mini sessions. I traveled to abroad to Cuba, Tulum, Montreal, cruised Alaska and slept in a car in the Great American West. I hosted my first workshop, opened my studio this July, photographed an editorial for Wedding Wire, was published in some of the world’s leading wedding publications and traveled to 17 states to photograph couples in love (Florida, North Carolina, California, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, Washington, Alaska, Maryland, New York, Maine, New Hampshire, Colorado, Vermont, Pennsylvania, Idaho and Texas).

I never quite realize the amount of work I take on until I sit down and review it in this little annual blog post. I couldn’t have accomplished ANY of this without my husband (who is a true life saver) family and friends as a support system. Below I want to share my favorite highlights of my amazing couples who trusted in me to capture their weddings.

I need to thank all the lovely humans featured below AND all of my clients that stepped in front of my lens this year. I am so thankful to you all for allowing me to live my best life, pursue my dreams and fill my heart with purpose and pride.
