This is the first time I’ve blogged a “best of” for the year. It turns out, it’s incredibly hard. I had an amazing year full of amazing people and creating many images I love…and hopefully they did too! Even on a personal level, it was a big year for me and my wife. We bought a house! (I even kick off the post with a shot of us I took using a tripod and remote) We also had a ton of fun traveling the country and the world with each other and friends.
While there are a lot of engagement sessions and weddings in here, I have included a lot of my family and portrait work as well. I don’t get to blog those a lot so I think this is the perfect way to show some of those sessions off.
2017 was certainly a tough year in the world in many regards, but I am thankful to this year and everyone who made it awesome for me. I photographed many weddings in Phoenix and the valley area, but my clients also took me to gorgeous places in Sedona and even San Francisco. 2018 has a lot to live up to. Cheers to all of you and I hope your year kicks ass!
Here are some of my favorite images I photographed this year.
Shot with: Canon 5D Mark IV, Canon 5D Mk III
Lenses used: Canon 24mm 1.4L, Canon 50mm 1.2L, Canon 135 2.0L
Aaron Kes (me!) is a Phoenix wedding photographer who also shoots weddings in Scottsdale, Tempe, the United States of America, and Earth. Seriously, I love to travel to shoot and do so often. Let’s have some fun!
WOW!! These gave me goosebumps!! ❤️❤️
Yay! Thank you, Ginger!
Smiles, happy tears, and good vibes looking at all of these! You’re so talented at capturing moments people will never forget!
Aww! Thank you so much. That really means a lot to me. I certainly loved getting those moments for you guys. 🙂
