To all my Internet and here-in-the-flesh friends near and very far. 
To all my new followers and those who have been faithfully tagging along since day one...

...to brides 
to grooms
to shop owners
to band members
to filmmakers
to risk-takers
to dream-makers
to strangers...

...to all whose faces 2012 has brought into my life. I thank you. Thank you for your smiles and laughs, your tears and cheers, your embarrassed giggles and sarcastic comebacks. YOU ALL have made this year one of my very favorites. Thank you for inspiring me and giving me the opportunity to photograph your very passionate, very special, very YOU life. 

Thank you.
