I love this time of year. I find myself reflecting back over the year as a whole and looking forward to the new year to come.
Paul Rich Studio experienced a tremendous amount of growth in 2012. We officially launched our portrait studio in SE Portland and continued to expand our presence in the Silverton, OR area with our wedding consultation space at Branches and Bloom. We had the opportunity to teach photography classes at The Art Institute of Portland and take on some rather unique assignments throughout the year. One of the highest honors for me this year was having the opportunity to document a traditional Navajo wedding ceremony set in the foothills of Mt Hood.
2012 was also the year of travel both personally and professionally. Before the wedding season officially kicked into gear, I had an opportunity to explore many areas throughout Europe with Spain, Italy, Greece, and Turkey being among my favorite destinations of the trip. They provided me with the perfect escape to appreciate my craft on a more personal level. A destination wedding in Arizona, a photographer’s tradeshow in Nevada, and a fun work assignment in California comprised my travels within the US.
2013 will be a continued year of growth for our business. As we head in to the new year, we are in the process of updating our website, implementing a brand new shopping cart experience for our customers, creating a new look for our business, and launching a brand new mobile app (which is super top secret and unbelievably exciting for us). With all of this in place and it being just the beginning of the year, we are expecting to share lots of updates and announcements throughout the year.
Thank you to all our couples for supporting our business and suggesting our services to others. We have compiled our top 50 favorite wedding images from 2012 to share with all of you. Here are some of our favorite highlights from 2012:
