As the year 2013 is winding down, and the holiday season is rapidly approaching, I have been seeing countless social media posts about what everyone is thankful for. This has been an amazing year for me and for my TLZ Photography business, and I wanted to hop on the thankfulness bandwagon. This year I am overwhelmed with gratitude for all of my couples who had enough faith, trust, and confidence in me to photograph their weddings when I was only able to offer them a very limited portfolio and history of experience. I will never be able to adequately repay all of you for what you gave to me this year, but I am eternally grateful!!
I also need to thank the amazingly talented list of photographers that allowed me to work with them this year. Not only was it incredible to be able to see greatness in action, but your willingness to share information and offer support was invaluable. I can only hope that one day I will be half as talented as all of you!

Lastly, I need to thank my family and friends who didn’t blink an eye or show any doubts when I told them my dream that “I want to be a photographer.” Instead, they encouraged me in my endeavor, they supported my dream, they asked me to take photos of them, and they referred me to their friends. They believed in me enough to give me the courage to believe in myself. I don't know how I ever got so lucky to have so many wonderful people in my life!
There are about a million other people who are not listed here (I'm sorry) that have been my biggest advocates as well. Without all of your support, my business, my images, and the foundation of a dream would not be where it is today. I am very much looking forward to learning, growing, shooting, improving, and making new friends and memories in the year 2014!
To everyone reading this, I am thankful for you!
