2012 wedding photographs

This isn’t a “best of 2012” post, but a collection of some of my favourite shots from the past 12 months.

2012 has been an important year for me, both as a person and as a photographer. For example, as well as taking photographs I also proposed to my girlfriend!

When I started out as a “wedding photographer” I didn’t really know where to take my inspiration from, so I would shoot with either pure instinct or more often than not, I would simply photograph what I thought people expected me to take photos of. “It’s tradition. Other wedding photographers shot this way in the past. If it was right for them back then, then it’s OK for me right now”. I realise now how important it is to have your own voice.

I evolved. As with all professions, you get better with experience. I started to surround myself with many brilliant photographers. I found myself literally sitting in the middle of this huge talent pool and where I once struggled to find inspiration, I now find myself getting it from all angles. This inspiration spurs me on, it inspires me, and ultimately manifests its way in to my our own work.

This year I got to travel all over the UK and Europe. My clients trust me to tell their stories, my way. And that’s all I could ever ask for.
