Here’s the 6th annual blog post of unprofessional pictures we’ve taken of each other while working. Bad light, bad hair, usually chewing food. Climbing on things and riding on the backs of golf carts and swimming and sitting on the floors of grocery stores and standing in the road. Hair of every conceivable color. Working with dogs that we can never successfully wrangle. Working with bridal parties that we can only kind of successfully wrangle. Glitter beards! Real beards! Connecticut and Italy and Pennsylvania and Tennessee and Virginia (YAAAHHHH)! Five different guys named John. Faking it til we make it. Although in business year 8 I guess we should probably stop faking it at some point and actually know what we’re doing. Maybe next year…but no promises.

The “Making Fools of Ourselves” posts started in 2011 at the end of our Class of 2011 post. Here’s a look at younger versions of us.

CSP Class of 2016.

As we finally bid this dumpster-fire of a year that is 2016 adieu, we take a moment to happily remember that while things went crashing and burning swiftly after David Bowie died, that not all of the year was bad. We personally had a lot of happy memories working with these happy people that we love and cherish. CSP had a wonderful year thanks to everyone in this post. A huge heartfelt congratulations to all of our clients on their weddings, anniversaries, children, pets, engagements, families, and all milestones large and small that we helped celebrate with you all this year. WE’RE SENDING A BIG HUG TO ALL OF YOU. A big, sweaty, gone-on-too-uncomfortably-long hug. May the odds of 2017 be ever in your favor. Congratulations to the CSP Class of 2016!

The year end “Class Of” posts date back to 2011.

Back in April we shot a ridiculously fabulous wedding in Positano, Italy and super fun Vespa-filled engagement session in Rome. Prior to those shoots, we traveled around a bit in Switzerland and Italy for two weeks and took a bunch of pictures (and 24 hours in London). It seems like forever ago. 2016 was just beginning to suck then. We found out that Prince had died while watching the news at the train station in Venice around midnight. I also still had longer dark hair (it’s currently about three inches long and blonde or purple depending on which day you see me), England was still part of the EU, and Toblerone still had all of its chocolate (thank goodness). So let’s take a trip down our European memory lane back to the beginning of 2016 when we were blissfully unaware of the horrors that awaited us.
