The year showed me new things. New faces. New personalities.
It also exposed me more, to me.
I learnt more about myself and why I do what I do. Not why I’m a wedding photographer, but why I take the images I take.
At first, I didn’t really want to write what I’m about to. This is my business website but it’s also my personal blog. The web address, is my name. I’m going to write some things which will probably scare away some of my potential couples, but I know I’m being honest.
This will either push you away, or make a better connection between us.
I’m not into wedding photos.
But, I love photography and I love people. Humble people. People in love.
I love the imperfections of a wedding day. The things that make a wedding real, rather than a performance. I want to look at my images and feel a connection to what I’m looking at and not how pretty it is.
I learnt this about me.
I learnt this is why my couples ask me to photograph their weddings.
I learnt what I love, is capturing what is real.
This year has taken me to places that I never thought I would ever see. The people I have met. The kindness of those that let me into their homes and introduced me to their families. The food and drinks I have shared with them.
So I have compiled a few photos from this year. I didn’t mean for there to be so many, but there was so much I wanted to share.
This was my year, in about 50 images. A reflection of 2015.
