2013: Explore. Embrace. Live. Learn.

2012 you beauty. What an incredible year it’s been. Here are a few things I’m thankful for, looking back at 2012:

Fantastic clients who make me realize everyday how lucky I am to do this on a full-time basis… seriously. I have been very blessed with lovely clients who get me and I get them…it’s awesome.

– Truly beautiful and fun weddings I was commissioned to shoot both here in the UK and in South Africa.

Press features in 12 wedding magazine & various wedding blogs. Thank you to my clients for inspiring other wedding couples with their wedding stories.

– The opportunity to travel to Paris, Italy, Turkey and South Africa this past year.

– The birth of my gorgeous little nephew & godson, Anakin and the opportunity to photograph him in mummy’s tummy, as well as 3 weeks after he was born. Mind-blowing.

I feel incredibly blessed to have had such a successful year and I’m really excited about 2013 and what it will hold for AMP (including a brand spanking new website *watch this space*)! For now, I’ve trawled Pinterest to create some fun goals / reminders for me on some of what I’d like to do in 2013.

A big thank you to all my clients, friends of AMP, family (especially my wonderful hubby) and close friends – you rock my world. Happy New Year!



Enough said! Bring on 2013!


More destination shoots, starting with France in Jan.


All the time…


More of moi, what I love and what I shoot!


Businesswoman of the year 2013….ok maybe not, but more focus – DEFINITELY!


…in 2013!


A subtle reminder that taking time out to appreciate life is crucial.


Caring less what other photographer’s are doing and focusing more on my own little road & personal projects.


A reminder to enjoy moments like the above – letting go and being a part of it all.


Trusting my instinct & eye to be confident in my professional & personal work.


More travel in 2013, starting with Northern France in January.


More of the same this year – getting out there, meeting interesting people, broadening my horizons.


Explore. Embrace. Learn. Live = 2013


More often in 2013!


Was it scary leaving my day job to become a full time professional photographer almost 2 years ago? YES, BUT looking at

photos like the one above (one of my favorites from 2012) makes me realize what a good decision that was!


Why NOT now? This year is my year to push the boat out & establish myself as the creative Destination Wedding Photographer I am.


I will indeed be getting my “neon” on (whatever that means) Mr Rabbit, thank you very much!


Bring on New Orleans, Florida and Tennessee with Mr M. in 2013! (image credit: Vivid Blue)


So true, more focus this year on shooting for me & integrating it into the way I shoot weddings / other work.


Travel + meeting new people + beautiful weddings in faraway places + good food = dream job.


So SMILE! 2013 is going to be epic :-)

  • Nina Kemp - Hi Anneli!

    Love your blog and outlook on 2013! So I guess the safest way to ask this is whether you are in South Africa in April? Roland and I are getting married on 27April (yup,it’s soon!) at the breathtaking venue in the Natal Midlands – Netherwood. We are looking for a photographer that not only takes beautiful photos of us, but also captures moments that would otherwise be forgotten and you are great with that!

    Please let me know if you are available for that weekend and what your package quotes are.

    Thank you

    Nina and RolandReplyCancel

  • Christa - You inspire me daily! May the sun shine upon you be blessed in 2013ReplyCancel
