My Favorite Photos of 2012 Pt. 1

As we wrap up 2012 and prepare to head out to celebrate another year, I wanted to share what I thought were my favorite photos of 2012.

2012 was the year I decided to turn what was a hobby into a small business.

During this year I worked a few times with Matt and Amanda over at Matt Wing Photography,  including shooting my first wedding. Hannah and Nate. At the time I was swamped with work at my day job, and let them handle the editing, but I recently spent some time going back over the photos and editing them in my style. I took almost 1600 photos and narrowed it down to these two.

Next up was the Baltimore Sun's Tweetup in March.

Which led to a shoot for GetJessedUp(Baltimore's Best Fashion Blog).

I got a chance to do a little bit of urban exploration by exploring an abandoned paper mill.

I wanted to do more street photography in 2012.

I shot several great engagement shoots including an actual surprise engagement.

I see something new every time I look at this image.

I went on a photowalk and captured this image at H.L. Mencken's house.

I captured an image of a man walking across the Harbor on a thin wire.

As I started writing this post, I kept coming up with more and more of the photos that meant something to me this year. I will follow up tomorrow with a second post in the next day or two, finishing it up.
