2019 - Another fantastic year!
Trying to pick some images to show the highlights of my 2019 has been a difficult task to say the least. I tried to keep it under a hundred but failed miserably sorry so well done if you get to the end haha! These wonderful couples that put their faith in me to capture their day really do mean the world to me and I know I will stay in touch with many of them for years to come.
This year has seen me photograph in castles, barns, golf clubs, hotels, manor houses and even a vineyard. I have seen the most beautiful dresses, shoes, flowers, cakes and worked with incredibly talented suppliers. I truly believe I am the luckiest person ever to be doing the happiest job in the world.
For those that know me well, I'm a numbers woman so here goes:
- 22 weddings
- 23 beautiful brides and 21 gorgeous grooms
- 20 incredible venues across 2 countries
- 2 wedding fayres
- 45,740 images taken including lots of couple, family and commercial sessions (no wonder I had such a hard time choosing!).
What the numbers don't describe though is the emotion that I feel: the butterflies of excitement I still get every single time I arrive at the bridal preparations; the anticipation waiting for the bride to make her grand entrance knowing that if the groom cries I'm a gonner; and the overwhelming love I feel when leaving, having been warmly welcomed into another family, knowing that I've played a part in a couple's biggest, most important day.
That's how I know I truly have the best clients - they choose me because they know I genuinely care. I completely get the emotion of it all and aspire to convey all those feelings in their final collection of images. I am beyond grateful to every customer, past, present and future that has put their faith in me!
I would like to wish you all the very best for 2020 and hope that it is an exciting year for every one of you xxx
