A Year in Pictures – 2013

December 30, 2013

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!

I thought I'd do a little blog about the awesome 2013 I had.  I shot so many wedding all over the UK and even one in Thailand and got married to my wonderful wife Jen as well!

I'd like to thank a couple of people who have supported me through what has been a crazy (in the best possible way!) year.  So massive thanks to Jen & Juno for putting up with me as I put every waking hour into my work during the summer and my parents for all their love and support.

A special mention must go out to Lisa Devlin, Adam Bronkhorst and all the photography farmers out there, it is so amazing to be part of such a brilliant community of talented and lovely people.  Big shout out to the other awesome groups as well including Share The Love, The Scottish Crew and The Bacon People.

A special mention must also go out to Sassy of Assassynation & Zoe Campbell for doing such an amazing job photographing my wedding.  Further thanks goes to Sassy for believing in me to the extent of flying me to the other side of the world to capture her amazing vow renewal in Thailand.

Also huge thanks goes to Kat at Rock N Roll Bride and Kelly at Boho Weddings for featuring my work, it is such an honour to be on your blogs.

A final thanks goes out to all the fabulous couples I have shot, thanks so much for trusting me to shoot your big day and for rocking it in front of the lens.

It went a little something like this...
