Best of 2017: Weddings Elizabeth Friske Photography

Best of 2017 Weddings

Elizabeth Friske Photography

Even though we are at the start of a new year, I can’t help but look back on 2017 with a grateful heart! This year was incredible.  It was filled with amazing couples who truly filled my heart.  It always an honor to be a part of couples love stories but I truly mean it when I say it, I have such incredible couples! This year, I fell more in love with this passion business.  Spending the day with each and every one of my couples were all highlights of my year. Being a Coastal Wedding Photographer in Virginia Beach, I love a good beach wedding but nothing makes me happier when couples choose me to be a part of their day because of the connection we have, not just for my work.

Today I am sharing a few favorite from each wedding from this year.  Thank you to couples who chose me to capture your wedding days.  I am beyond grateful and am so humbled to be a part of your story and most of all your friend.  Each of these weddings was unique to the couple and share so many meaningful moments.

It goes without saying, that I LOVE this job.  To share in my couples biggest days as they start their marriage… fills my heart with all the love and gratitude.  It brings tears to my eyes to look back on the work I have created to freeze these moments.  Moments for them to look back on a relish in as they grow in their marriage.

So without further ado, here are some of the best of 2017.  There are so many wonderful moments from this year’s weddings so it was hard to narrow down.
