2015 // It’s been emotional

You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose.
You’re on your own. And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go.

the workshop

As a photographer I produce images which resonate with me. It’s a reflection of who I am, how I feel and how I relate to any given situation. The people I’ve met and the experiences I’ve had in my life have a great bearing on what I shoot at a wedding. My own experiences as a father and a husband help me to empathise with my clients, and my own feelings dictate what I shoot because I think those images will be important and meaningful to the people I’m photographing in years to come. So I thought it only fitting to include a handful of personal images on to the end of this post.

2015 started with Sally and I travelling to London for the National Final of the Wedding Industry Awards. From there my work has taken me to Spain, Greece, London again, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall and the Lake District. I’ve shot a wedding on a hillside, in a barn and on a farm. I’ve photographed receptions in stately homes, castles, tipis, church halls and back gardens. In between all of that we had a baby, started a photo booth business and shot a load of couples and families. Not to mention picking up a handful of awards, being interviewed by the Guardian and being listed in the top 100 wedding photographers in the world. So all in all it was a bit busy! One of the many highlights of my year from a photography perspective was a few days spent in Greece with some great photographers. Thanks to Lanny and Erika for some good times, and great inspiration. And on a personal note, as always, thanks to my amazing wife Sally for inspiring me to be better in everything I do.

**This post doesn’t contain everything that happened or even images from every wedding I shot. It’s just a big handful of my personal favourites. There’s still loads to edit and blog in the new year. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to look at my work this year.

Looking forward to some crazy adventures in 2016!
