We cannot even begin to put into words just how amazing of a year 2012 has been for us! We’ve networked, met some amazing couples, captured some truly stunning weddings, brides, grooms, and most importantly made some great friends a long the way! Without all of your love, support, and on going loving words Jillian McGrath Photography would not have been possible and now With Love & Embers could never have been formed. Our gratitude is just over flowing from our hearts for all that you have done for us. Though you may not realize it, if you are reading this right now you have greatly impacted what we do, what we create, and how we get inspired. We cannot thank you enough for that!
2012 has been such a beautiful year full of some exciting things such as being featured on some truly amazing blogs like Green Wedding Shoes, Heart Love Weddings, Ruffled and 100 Layer Cake, just to name a few. Along with that we had one of our images used in a print piece in Destination Weddings and Honeymoons showing off the amazing talents of Kristy Rice from Momental Designs, as well as on the online magazine Utterly Engaged’s Wanderlust along with some Kristy Rice and our amazing friend Natalie from Birdhouse Productions. We’ve had some beautiful styled shoots featured as well with the help of some of our dear friends from Belovely Events, Sullivan Owen Floral and Event Design, Couture Cakery, Maggpie Vintage Rentals, Birdhouse Productions, Danielle Pasternak Wedding Coordinator, Splints & Daisies and so many more talented artists that we cannot begin to thank for their skill, time, and talents!
That was just the beginning, we are so excited to be growing, loving and nurturing this new brand as a husband and wife photographic team. Embracing moving forward that there are two people behind what we do instead of one. This has been a difficult decision and a huge undertaking but in the end we think and feel in our hearts that it is the best possible move of us going forward. We want to embrace everyone we work with as a team, uniting us both with the brand, like we have in marriage. Working together has been one the best choices we could have ever made, it’s held so many great things and opportunities for us and cannot wait to see what the up coming year has in store for us!
Of course with all of the amazing professionals that we have had the chance to work with and get to know, our business would truly not be where it is today without the love and support of our couples. We’ve worked so hard this year to help capture their special moments, love and days the best way that we know how. We’ve had the pleasure of being apart of so many special, moving and amazing days that we feel so blessed that you choose to work with us. Truly, without you this dream would be nothing, our business would not happen. We’ve been apart of 20+ weddings this past year, capturing thousands of smiles, laughs, tears, kisses and hugs all of which have touch our lives and hold such a dear place in our hearts, and all as uniquely remembers as our couples are.
So thank you everyone for touching our hearts, for your love and support. We are so excited and know that 2013 has something special in-store for us all! We hope you have a happy and loving New Year! <3
