2013 – My Year In Review

2013 seemed to whizz by so fast and 2014 already feels the same, already 2 weeks into the year and I’m only just posting my review of the year. It’s been my busiest year so far, filled with beautiful weddings, newborn babies and family photography. The wedding season started early for me and ran right up to the 30th December. It was a year, where I shot my first destination wedding in the South of France, saw my work featured in magazines and on some of the UK’s top wedding blogs and the year I made it into the final of Wedding Ideas Magazine ‘Wedding Photographer of the Year.’ I’ve made new friends and worked with new people.

2013 also saw sadness, as at Easter I said goodbye to one of my best friends – my Dad, who lost his battle with Cancer. It was the toughest time I’ve ever been through, watching someone you love so much, suffer and slip away is like torture. I miss him everyday.

I feel truly blessed to do what I do for a job, being surrounded by so much happiness is like food for the soul, so thank you to all the couples and families who have put their trust in me to capture their memories and surrounded me with their smiles, you are truly wonderful. I’m welcoming the new year with open arms and looking forward to new adventures, who knows what 2014 will bring.
