As always, it was a mammoth task whittling my favourite wedding images of 2016, down to just a few. I don’t think I’m the only wedding & portrait photographer who grow attached to certain images, maybe it’s because we remember the moment and emotion captured so vividly, it becomes hard to choose one over another. As far as occupational hazards go, that’s probably not too dangerous! ;-)
2016 was very kind to me, I photographed couples in 8 different countries, worked on beautiful styled shoots and shot many sunset couple & maternity sessions (thank you for playing along weather). On a personal level we moved to Horsham, West Sussex, and I became the fittest & strongest I’ve ever been, sharing my journey on my personal Instagram account (daunting but exciting!). In 2016 I learnt that I don’t have to be everything to everyone and that it’s ok to say no. A very important lesson. Life is busy and it’s important to look after yourself…so we spent a blissful 9 days in Santorini celebrating my birthday and watched many sunsets in our hot tub…it was epic and much needed!
In 2016 I worked with so many lovely couples who trusted me to capture their weddings in my signature style and the images below are just a small selection of the moments, places, details and memories that stand out for me. I want to say a huge thank you to my clients who made it possible for me to create the images below and a big thank you to the wonderful suppliers I worked with this year. It makes such a difference working with a dream team of suppliers on a wedding day and I’m hoping for more of the same in 2017.
Keep your eyes peeled for the full wedding blog posts from my lovely 2016 couples below, but for now, here are some of my favourites from 2016. Enjoy!
