Happy New Years Eve everyone! It kind of felt like the right time to tidy away 2017 and look towards the future so I decided to sit down and put together this final wrap up blog post of the year collecting together some of my favourite photos from the last couple of months. If you missed Part 1 and Part 2 go and check them out. Hopefully this is more Return Of The Jedi and less The Godfather Part 3 but I’ll let you be the judge of that!
Hannah and I want to say a huge thank you to you, whatever your reasons for reading this. Be it a fellow photographer (your support and inspiration pushes us each time we pick up the cameras to keep on improving and to give more and more), a friend (you know who you are, you are everything to us), a couple who have put their faith in us to capture their special day over the next year or so (we will not let you down, thank you for letting us continue with this dream), or one of our couples from this year who we have loved spending time with (you’ve made this year for us, there are really no words to express our gratitude to you).
We end our year on a nice little high note as we picked up three new Masters Of Wedding Photography awards in the latest round for the photos above which is hugely humbling and flattering. These three are probably in my own personal Top 5 of favourite photos that we’ve ever taken so I’m so proud to see them pick up these awards. There are flashier photographers out there than us, more technical, more creative, but if we can pack this much heart into our frames and preserve these moments for decades to come it’s really all that counts to us and what we break ourselves to do each and every time we step into that crazy wedding environment.
The future is burning bright right now. Searingly bright. In the coming months we’ll be exploring new venues, re-visiting old favourites, travelling across Europe and unquestionably meeting countless wonderful people along the way. From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you, Happy New Year, here’s to 2018!
