The best of 2017 – A review of an unbelievable year

The best of 2017 | A review of an unbelievable year

How do you create a highlight reel of a whole year as a wedding photographer?  It’s not easy that’s for sure, so many amazing moments shared with amazing people, I could have easily created a 15 minute slideshow, maybe even longer!!!  However after many hours of hard decisions about which images to include and which to leave out I’ve condensed my entire year in to just 3 minutes, and what a year it’s been!

I’ve shot everything this year from really personal DIY weddings in village halls to my first destination wedding in the stunning setting of Lake Como, travelled down to Nottingham and even photographed a wedding in a brewery.  It’s been a diverse, interesting and very awesome 12 months!!!   Thank you to all my unbelievably wonderful couples for making this a year to remember, I’ve experienced such warmth, kindness and love from you all… I hope the memories we created together last a lifetime <3

On a more personal note I found out my wife and I are expecting baby #2 in February which is incredibly exciting, and I’ve watched Leon, my 3 year old grow from a toddler in to a very funny, slightly headstrong and very caring young boy.   I also set up the hugely popular wedding photography website Photographers Keeping it Real, because having a full time job as a photographer, plus having a family clearly wasn’t enough hard work haha.  If you’re a fellow photographer or just interested in wedding photography in general please check out all our awesome reviews and podcasts on there.

Anyway here’s the slideshow, I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I enjoyed photographing all these fantastic moments.

Andy’s service was the best that we had experienced in any industry. He is truly a genius in photography and captured all of our special moments. We have recommended his services to friends. - Marie & Matthew”

Andy made our wedding day so special and we both feel very lucky that he managed to capture all of the important moments. I'm usually so critical of photos taken of me and I still can't believe its actually me in the photos! - Maria & Richard”
He really is the best of the best! - Laura & Simon”
He didn't feel like someone just paid to do a service (which he did brilliantly!). He chatted to everyone, put everyone at ease and really added to our day. - Melissa & Darren”
I cannot recommend Andy Hudson enough. Our wedding was a mix of traditions and cultures, and he worked alongside us to produce the photos we wanted working towards our needs, instead of his own. A completed tailored and personalised service that cannot be faulted, his documentary style is very relaxed and the photos are simply stunning! - Martha & Tom”
We really love that his style of photography is a more relaxed approach. We decided early on that great photos were a priority for us as you want to enjoy them for years to come.  Guests commented on how impressed they were with him on the day and we are overjoyed with the end result! - Helen & Mark”
Andy's light humour and gentle approach was just what we needed - the pics were stunning. - Johannah & David”

We couldn't be happier with the photos, the character, the quality, the quantity, the personality of every single one were all top notch.Absolutely brilliant pictures from a really lovely guy, we could not recommend him highly enough - Hannah & Duncan”
They say you “just know”, when you have chosen the right photographer, thanks for making us feel so relaxed and comfortable on the day (although at times you seemed to be invisible – in a good way). I know we made the right choice, and you just seemed to “fit” – if you know what I mean!Your professionalism & vision are both qualities you have in bucket loads, once again thanks, you made it a special day - Jane & Chris”
Andy is a truly brilliant and talented photographer and a pleasure to work with, we couldn’t be happier with our photographs! – Sarah & Chris”
