WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY - BEST OF 2018
And just like that… 2018 is about to bite the dust! It feels like it was only a few weeks ago I was posting my 2017 review, but in that crazy blur of time, I’ve seen 21 couples share the most incredible day with their friends and family. So that’s it an end to year 2 all by myself and that combination of excitement and nerves when I pull p to a brand new venue shows no sign of letting up! Having no idea what the day has in store, but knowing that amazing things are about to happen is something pretty special. For me my second year has been very much like a music artists difficult second album, and I know this is cliche, but it genuinely has been a brilliant year.
I often get asked at weddings “what’s the best wedding you’ve been to?”, and I’m finding this impossible to answer, even if you asked me to pick a favorite from this year, I wouldn’t be able to choose one, but there have been some special standout memories in 2018; my first wedding in the snow was a hoot and a challenge but I loved every second of Coral and Jon’s wedding in London. Having a professional wedding magazine approach me to feature one of my weddings was a great feeling that I am slowly getting noticed by publishers and always great to see my work in print. Another first for me was shooting a wedding in a hawk conservancy with an owl delivering the wedding rings and eagles, vultures everywhere which was amazing to see. This year has also been the first where previous brides and grooms have made little people!!!! And as with every year on this journey of mine, I’m still blown away from the amount of love couples, family and friends have for each other at each and every wedding and soaking up all that love makes me want to make more and more special moments for people. I’ve also clocked up my fair share of motorway mileage, visiting Devon, London, Cotswolds, Suffolk and Hertfordshire to name just a few locations. I still can’t believe that jumping from photographing bands at gigs and festivals to weddings would have given me so much joy and reignited my passion for making beautiful photos! Next year I want to still keep going strong and keep pushing towards my target of 50 weddings a year, I don’t do much advertising so if you’re reading this and are getting married or know someone who is please don’t hesitate to get in touch, also feel free to follow me on my Instagram which you’ll find all my best portfolio work or hit me up on Facebook.
Finally a round up of the year wouldn’t be right without thanking all the couples who decided to bring me along on their journey this year, I never underestimate that decision and the trust you guys have put in me, and I can’t thank you enough. So here it is, a selection of 130 of my favourites from 2018!
2019, I’m coming for you! 🙂
