Faves of 2018

Unposed & Joy filled Moments – My Faves of 2018

It’s that time of year when I crack open my memory bank (aka my big daddy hard drive) and take a look back over everything I’ve done over the last twelve months to review what adventures my camera and I have had! I can tell you, it’s been a cracking year, folks. 2018 was good to me; I met some truly lovely, interesting people, visited some amazing places and – to top it off – gave birth to a fabulous baby girl. A new little sister for my son and an entirely new adventure for us as parents. My photography and my family are such proper, genuine sources of joy to me. Bringing a new baby into the house has highlighted this to me all over again – she’s a little one-woman joy machine and I am loving it.

I think joy and the bringing of it sits at the heart of my job above anything else. No matter what a couple is going for on their wedding day, real, unbridled joy is always at the centre of it all. I see it in abundance at every wedding I shoot, in every unposed frame; a dad weeping as his daughter dances with her new husband for the first time, a groom roaring with laughter as his best man tells THAT anecdote from school, a little flower girl’s face when she’s given her special shoes to wear for the first time. Call it what you like: happiness, giddiness, delirium…I call it joy.

As ever, my year has been all about the characters, the fun, the colour (oh my GOSH the colour) and the candid moments that make your wedding days so unmistakably ‘you’. I wanna say a MASSIVE thank you to all my couples. Having your trust and permission to do my thing has been such a blast and something that I never, ever take for granted. We’ve laughed, cried and sweated hard together (how HOT was that summer?!) and, hand on heart, I wish we could do it all over again. Here’s to 2019, let’s hope it’s bursting with as much joy as 2018. It’ll be a tough act to follow.

    A riot of colour and humour, a real assault on the eyes, in a good way! I love how you see things and the level of energy your photos deliver.

    straight up class! so much fun – phenomenal collection. I love the face down groomsmen in the grey suits, images with little context are always my favourite.
