Best of 2016

January 10, 2017  •  4 Comments

It is always tough choosing which wedding photos will make the cut for my end of year “Best of” collection.
It’s like choosing which cat, or child is your favourite. (I have 3 cats and 1 child)

I initially had well over 300 photos in my first draft, and I gradually cut it down to the 120 or so you see here. The brief I set myself was that the photos should provoke a reaction. So, with that in mind, I tried to avoid the obvious photos that I take at every wedding. I wanted to include the unique photos, the personal photos, the ones where skill and luck collide, whether they make you laugh, cry, or just go “Wow” that’s a pretty cool wedding photo.

Anyway, I’m starting to sound a bit pretentious, so I will just finish of by saying “Thank you” to the real stars of the show, my bloody amazing bride and grooms, and all their crazy guests!

This shit could not happen without you!
You rock!

Lovely stuff, really showcases your ability to find the shots other photographers don't. Tons of humour and tenderness.
