As we are half way through January and with my first weddings of the year just around the corner i thought its about time to have a review of 2011.
Looking back through thousands of photos and condensing them into one blog post is no easy task, so rather than choosing one or two from every wedding decided to concentrate on picking images that sum up what I’m trying to capture when i shoot a wedding.
I love a few detail shots and a set of killer posed photos of the bride and groom, don’t get me wrong I’m very, very proud of them, but the ones that really jumped out when looking back are the emotional shots. Dad pacing in up and down in the back garden as his daughter gets ready, mum gripping her sons hand before the ceremony, these are the kind of shots that underpin my whole approach to wedding photography.
Thanks to all the families, guests, staff at venues (who fed and watered me) and fellow wedding suppliers i have met over the year, but of course the biggest thank you has to go to the bride and grooms who trusted me and gave me the freedom on the day to do what i do best, so with that in mind……bring on 2012.
