So this is SOME of the best of 2016.
So that was a year huh! Bowie & Brexit et all.
2016. Quite a bloody year! The year offered so much diversity for me! I stood on a super yacht as it entered the dock of one of the most prestigious restaurants in the world singing Rule Britannia. I flew in a private jet. I got caught speeding to weddings (twice). I saw grown men cry (lots).
I saw a friend get married. In fact I watched lots of friends get married. I saw HUGE weddings, tiny weddings and weddings that were somewhere in between.
I went to Devon, to Dorset and Surrey, to Essex and the South of France (have I mentioned that?). I saw Jimmy Choo’s and Louboutin’s. I saw AMAZING dresses. I saw a lady with over a 100 grandchildren! Castles, grand, huge sprawling castles overlooking the most beautiful coast imaginable. I had a very close encounter with a Spitfire fly by. I rescued guests that had been left behind. I watched as kids rolled down huge grassy hills in their best frocks.
I witnessed a table tennis match for more money than I earn in a very long time!! I used smoke bombs and the Ring of Fire. I balanced on window ledges and laid flat on the floor to capture a shot. I shot my first Jewish same-sex marriage. I watched some fantastic speeches. Some terrible ones too. I photographed moments that made me cry. I am very lucky.
I get asked a lot, “Why are you a wedding photographer??” The simple answer would be, I like it. It earns me money.
But its more than that. Much, much more. If I photographed your wedding this year (or ever for that matter) you will know that I do more than take a photo or two.
I see it as a privilege to be part of your day. Honestly I do. I want people to remember me. I want them to think that I was a bit more than some bloke who took a few pics.
Because every single one of you have made my year AMAZING!! Thats the truth.
So here they are. I chose these because they are either brilliant or capture a great moment in my year.
Please enjoy them. Leave a comment if you like or even EMAIL me. I don’t mind hearing what you have to say. I have broad shoulders!!
