Good Bye 2010, Hello 2011

This post is a little late, but we don’t care, it’s getting posted anyways.  This year we accomplished so much. We met so many awesome people and shared some truly wonderful and memorable times with them. We added a new member to our family, Benjamin who was born January 26th. We made new connections in the industry and spent some time learning and developing our skills. We also gave back. We can only hope to do even more in 2011.

To our past clients,

Thank you. We don’t know how to express our gratitude to you for allowing us into your lives. Watching and documenting your special days is a once in a life time thing. Through all the laughs and tears we are honored to have shared some of your special moments with you all. Each of your weddings had personal touches that made your weddings uniquely yours.

To our future clients,

We may have made connections with some of you already and some we may have yet to meet. In both cases, we say bring it on. We choose to do this because of you. The time we will share and the things you will teach us are invaluable. We are excited to work with you and create memories that will last a lifetime.

To our industry friends,

We have made lots of friends this year and are excited to get to know you all a little more in 2011. Some of you have taught us things that will lead us to making great personal and professional decisions that will take us through to the next level; for this we are grateful. We have collaborated with some of you and we always enjoy this and it usually leads to lots of laughs and some great images. We look forward to all the future parties, meetings, weddings and whatever it leads us to.

To those whom we gave back to,

This year we gave back. We gave both in cash and service, some global and some local. While we don’t wish to speak to specifics of every charity which we donated to, we would like to take a minute to talk about our biggest charity event this year, Help Portrait. Help Portrait is a global event; if you wish to learn more, click here. In short, this is a big event where local photographers come together and photograph people locally that may otherwise not have had the opportunity to have their portraits taken. In Nanaimo we had amazing volunteers and contributions from the community. To those of you that helped with this event, thank you. It would not have been a success without you. We are already excited for next year’s event.

Here’s hoping that 2011 is as fantastic as 2010 was and more.

Spencer, Theresa and Ben.
