Happy New Year Everyone! Many people are glad to be putting 2016 behind them, and similarly the year was full of both bad and good moments for me. However, in the end the amazing experiences I had shine brightly when I look back. I got engaged exactly one year ago today in Yosemite. Brian and I started a travel blog together, Bound to Explore (check it out!). We traveled to Canada and had the opportunity to visit the insanely gorgeous Banff and Jasper National Parks. We did a few short trips in California including San Francisco, and June Lake. Finally, we ended the year with a two-week trip to Europe, where we visited England, France, and Switzerland.
I also continued to teach full time, and work part time photographing weddings for Lin and Jirsa Photography. Life is busy, but pretty great and I look forward to getting hitched, honing my photography craft, and going on more adventures in 2017! Here are some of my favorite images from the past year.
