My final blog post for 2014…wow. I actually can’t believe how fast the year has flown by, or maybe it just feels that way because it’s been crazy busy and filled with lots of travel adventures?
This year, I’ve been fortunate enough to shoot in Italy, The Netherlands, France (here and here), Malta and in Spain. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love travel & travel photography so this year has been very kind to me on that front! I’ve shot some very special UK and destination weddings and was commissioned to do a beautiful editorial shoot for You & Your Wedding Magazine back in the Summer. I’ve also shot quite a few portrait & lifestyle commissions this past year and hope to do more of these in 2015. Finally, I created & shot a breath-taking bridal shoot just outside of Barcelona in October, working with a group of amazing Spanish suppliers.
Next year looks promising and I’m excited to see where my business will go in the coming year. On a personal level, I’m looking forward to being a bridesmaid at my close friends Tammy & Mackers‘ wedding in South Africa in April! I haven’t been a wedding guest since 2008, so this is a truly epic occasion for me! ;-)
To end off 2014 blogging, here are some of my favourite images from a destination wedding shoot in Ravello on the Amalfi Coast. It features a gorgeous wedding couple in Ravello celebrating their nuptials with a luxe outdoor wedding meal at Hotel Caruso, set amongst the ruins of the old Roman baths.
If I was getting married again, Hotel Caruso and the Amalfi Coast would be a strong contender for location! Check out some of my travel photography in Positano on the Amalfi Coast here. Nothing is more charming than the old world Italian romance that embodies the Amalfi Coast and with gorgeous styling by Joy Proctor Design, this was one of my favourite shoots from 2014 and featured on one of my favourite Mediterranean wedding blogs – Belle & Chic, here. If you’d like to see more of Ravello and our gorgeous bride Denisa, click here.
Enjoy the post and have a wonderful New Year celebration, wherever you find yourself in the world. Here’s to a healthy, happy and fulfilling 2015!
