Twenty Seventeen. Damn, you’ve been a good year.
I love creating my end of year round up and pulling together my personal best wedding photos from the year. It’s always great to look back through the weddings I’ve shot and remind myself of the moments I’ve captured. Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face. This year has definitely been special. I’ve seen a whole lot of love, laughter and emotion, quite a bit of crazy dancing and huge amount of champagne spraying!
Once again, I’ve been fortunate to photograph weddings up and down the country, along with a pre-wedding shoot in Abu Dhabi, a couples session in New York, and two weddings outside the UK too – Paresh and Karina’s intimate wedding in Tuscany, and Amrita and Balraj’s epic wedding celebration in Bali.
As clichéd as it sounds, I love travelling to all these beautiful locations. And – as clichéd as it sounds – 2017 has been so good mainly because of all the people I’ve met along the way, and the unique wedding stories I’ve documented.
To cap it all off, I’ve been lucky enough to win few more awards along the way. I came 4th overall in the UK Masters Of Wedding Photography competition, and landed three awards from the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers. Now I am ending the year on a high having been named the number one photographer in London for the Wedding Photojournalist Association. It’s hard to take it all in, really. 2017 has been an absolutely brilliant year.
Of course, it’s only brilliant because of the amazing couples that have welcomed me into their lives. So I’d like to say a huge thank you to all my clients for letting me witness your love and the love of your family and friends, and for allowing me to document your special day.
I know I say it year after year, but I always mean it. I’m very grateful to be a wedding photographer, and it’s incredibly humbling to know how many people have put their faith in me to capture their wedding day just as they want it. I always try to be the best wedding photographer I can be, every single time.
I’ve tried my hardest to make this a reasonable sized round up, but its proven a tricky task as I just have so many favourite images this year. So thank you once again, 2017. You’ve been immense. I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store.
Right, enough with the emotion – here are my best wedding photo’s from the 2017 photography season. I hope you enjoy all of them as much as I enjoyed taking them, roll on 2018!
