So I decided to throw together some of my favorite personal photos. For those of you who do not know, I take daily photos. That means I pick up my camera every day and take at least one photo. I can not tell you how much this helps me be a better photographer. I also sell some of these photos through stock agencies like Getty Images. Every year I end up with a ton of photos that really never see the light of day. They may make it onto my personal instagram (@aotzen) or for sale on a stock site but for the most part they sit on my hard drive until I find the time to put them into an album. I thought I'd share a few of my daily photos with you on my blog so you could see what inspires me and the tricks I practice when I'm not photographing weddings. Here is just a small selection of some of my favorite photos from 2017.
I can honestly say that 2017 was the best year yet for my photography business. That is why trying to put together a blog post of favorite photos was so hard. Instead of just going through and picking out the prettiest photos from 2017, I thought about all the moments that moved me or made me laugh, or the surprises I found while editing. I have so so many more that I could share but here is just a small highlight of 2017. Slivers of seconds that together show how lucky I am to get to do what I love for a carreer.
I still have space avialabe for 2018 weddings and am now booking 2019 weddings so please contact me for more info!
I met up with Cassie and Ben this past summer at the August Schell Brewing Company and then traveled around their neck of the woods taking photos at places that were special to them. I had such a great time. Meeting up with these two proves the exact reason I include and engagement session with each booking. I was really able to get to know them before the wedding. Here are a few favorites from their session.
