2016 is that one year that no one really wants to look back on, but for us personally.. it was a pretty big year! I started with 71 favorite photos but knew I had to narrow it down to at least 20. So here they are, along with some honorable mentions in the banner. 😀
I began the year with some low expectations because I had just moved back from PA and no one really knew me as an “actual photographer”. 2016 surprised me though, with it being our first official year as Nassimbeni Photography, 18 weddings, 30+ engagements and other portrait sessions..I’d say its been a great and blessed first year! 🤗
This was the year I came to know who I am in the photographic world, because we all know most photographers shoot with the same cameras and edit with the same programs. I’ve learned that what makes me stand out is me and my own eye. I honed in on my style, accepted the fact that my photos may neeeever look like the big photographers I’ve admired, took lots of naps and stressed myself out creating a website I loved. I’ve even come to embrace the “mistakes” of blurry photos that I find beauty in. I gained a great love for black and white images as well. This year was about more than the perfect lighting situation, the composition and the background though… All of that didn’t matter when it was the last photos of his father the groom would ever have. That means more than any setting on a camera ever could.
This year I’ve learned that I want my photography to be delicate and emotional, yet fierce. You know.. not full on Beyonce, but more like Alicia Keys 😉
Wedding on a yacht! How crazy and cool is that, looking forward to more yacht weddings later on :)
When the wind just cooperates perfectly.
I’ve met amazing vendors and clients, seen the most beautiful venues and bouquets and had just the best time making this dream of mine a reality in 2016 and I can’t wait to see what 2017 has for us. I say us because starting in 2017 my husband, Breno will officially be joining me as our videographer! We have big things coming up so yeahhhh I’m excited for the new year! Here is one of my favorite engagement clips he’s done. 🙂
