Well that went quick! 2017, what a pleasure it was. A year of capturing lots of amazing memories for couples, their families and friends. It really has been a privilege. Trying to decide which photos to include is never easy. Certain photos stand out for me at certain times none more so than the first image and my last image. The first wasn't actually taken this year but last. This is Naresh, posted this photo to Instagram towards the end of this summer, he commented on the post saying "It's me :)" I then asked how he was and he replied "not to good to be honest" Naresh was in the late stages of cancer which I had no idea about. Sadly he passed away at the end of August :( An amazing man who was the same age as me. Sad stories like this reiterate the importance of what us wedding photographers do. As for the last photo, well you can se for yourself :) This year I have been lucky enough to visit some new wedding venues in the Cotswolds, all over England, back home in Wales, Austria and finishing off 2017 photographing a crazy six day wedding alongside Tim Bishop in Dubai. So far next year I have some lovely new local venues, plus camera club is taking me to Thailand, Holland, France and Spain so far. Obviously all work :) This year also I had another great experience of running a second wedding photography workshop alongside good friends Aga Tomaszek and Erik Halvorsen, this time at my home in Cheltenham. Helping others is very humbling and watching their progression throughout the year has even been inspiring. Another personal highlight was being asked by one of the worlds best photographers, in mine and many others opinions Ross Harvey to second shoot for him at what can only be described as an unbeleivable wedding at Blenheim Palace This coming year is already looking fantastic so here's to 2018.
