The very best of 2016 – My year in review || Documentary Newcastle wedding photography.
Ok so I say ‘the very best’ but the truth is when shooting 30 weddings across Newcastle, the North East and even some around the rest of the UK it’s almost impossible to come up with a ‘greatest hits’ of the year, and if I were to choose the photos again 100 times, the final set would be different every single time. I delivered 15,000 images in 2016, yes 15,000 (an average of 500 per wedding)!!! So to trim it down to a reasonable sized blog post was a near impossible task. I had so many wonderful couples invite me in to their most precious of days with arms wide open, they allowed me to capture the real story of their days by being unbelievably welcoming, and on the odd occasion / a lot of occasions climbed in to corn fields, or on to a roof terrace with great views over the city for that one magical show stopping portrait, oh some even stood out in the pouring rain all in the name of art… amazing!!!
My wedding photography took me to some amazing venues in Newcastle, Northumberland, County Durham, Manchester and many other places, I got to work with THE best couples and 2016 has really helped hammer home just how lucky I am to do a job that is not only a passion that runs through my veins, but takes me in to a world of pure joy, magic and emotion, one where I make friends for life and help capture moments that will last beyond this life time and live on for the next generations to see… It really doesn’t get any better that that.
I was incredibly humbled to receive the accolades of being one of Looks Like Film‘s ‘Artists of the Year’, I was listed as one of the Top 10 Photographers in the whole North of England (Junebug), was a finalist in the Wedding Industry Awards ‘North East & Yorkshire wedding photographer of the year’, won a ‘Wed Award‘ (international wedding photography award) and was featured several times by Boho Weddings. However the absolute best part was working with my brilliant couples, you guys made my year beyond amazing, you made it absolutely 100% perfect!
