Best of Twenty-Twelve

This post excludes some good, really good, and damn good moments that I’ve fallen in love with over the past year. Below are a few of the best images that worked well together in this space to quickly convey how spectacular 2012 was. I met so many great people and felt so privileged to bear witness to so many genuine and intimate moments. These photos are from Mexico, Maryland, South Carolina, Tennessee, New York, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts. I kind of love my job.

Allie Zuckerman - I somehow never saw this last year! Feel so blessed that a few of your shots from my wedding are included, especially the one of me and my mother. Thanks again for all your artistry and hard work!February 10, 2014 – 3:48 pm

KLC - These images are bananas.February 27, 2013 – 1:48 pm

Andy Dowd - There’s something I really love about the bride and groom walking down the snow-covered sidewalk (is that Pilar & Aaron?), but I can’t put my finger on it. Maybe how monochromatic it is? And I also love the framing of the groom shaving. Really nice work.February 15, 2013 – 1:30 pm

carla ten eyck - just knock it off right now!!! love these so much! Each image totally sucked me in and told me a story whether I knew the real story or not.

Christina - Your love for what you do is so apparent in your work. Congrats on an awesome year!January 27, 2013 – 3:57 pm

jen - always thrilled to see what you’re up to, channing. these photos are, of course, stunning.January 26, 2013 – 3:04 pm

Sarah - 1. Martha Mary Chapel! Oh, in another lifetime I dreamed about getting married there. I haven’t been by there in years and years…seeing it was a sentimental arrow to the heart. :)

2. The church (priest, couple) shot is perfection. Every one is in the perfect position. I have to believe the moms, aunts, and assorted matriarchs *loved* that picture. As a photographer (amateur!), that’s the kind of shot I dream of taking, always.

3. That tiger jacket has to win as Best Wedding Attire Ever, In the History of Weddings.

Happy New Year, and best wishes for 2013.January 21, 2013 – 6:07 pm

Daniela - This is always my favorite post! (Besides my own wedding, of course!)January 16, 2013 – 3:16 pm

Ashley O'Dell - So, a few things. The amount of genius in some of these images should embarrass you. The champagne, the flowers and ac, the church at night, the curlers, the traffic, you get the idea, but there are many more. All incredible moments that tell the story of a wedding without saying a word.January 16, 2013 – 2:13 pm

Nina - YOU RULE.January 16, 2013 – 1:17 pm

Josh Behan - Beautiful work as always.January 16, 2013 – 12:43 pm
