Happy New Year! Looking back at 2023, our team at Paper Birch Collective wants to take a moment to thank all of our amazing clients who trusted us to capture their special moments. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with such awesome people and to witness so many beautiful love stories in a variety of stunning locations. We are super excited for all to come in 2024!
In 2023, our team at PBC had the privilege of capturing over 100 events from weddings, engagements, and proposals across the country and abroad. We traveled to beautiful destinations, met wonderful people, and had a blast experiencing different cultures and traditions (such as Chinese and Vietnamese Tea Ceremonies). Of course, we also faced some challenges, but we always managed to overcome them with creativity and teamwork. We are proud of the work our team has done this year, and we are excited to share some of our favorite 2023 moments, from the love stories we captured to our fun team travel adventures.
