Behind the Scenes with Lena: 2018

 
 

2018 WAS AN EPIC YEAR…

There was laughing, happy tears, hilarious speeches, rainy days, hot days, CAKE, boutonnieres pinned, trains bustled, dancing floor grinding, sore feet, Dunkin Donuts fueled road trips, early mornings, late nights, and HUNDREDS of sneak peeks.

I took 78,338 photographs and edited + delivered over 31,000.


Thirty. One. Thousand.

I worked my buns off, so you better believe it was a kickass year. Got my own health insurance. Took a bajillion selfies. Made pasta in Italy. Shot 22 weddings both big and small. Got published in 11 different magazines and blogs. Traveled to 18 cities. Drank over 300 bubble teas.

Ok but where is Lena pulling these random numbers from?

SURPRISE, I have been keeping track ALL FREAKIN YEAR for the sole purpose of blogging about it.
