My best wedding photography of 2015? That’s an almost impossible choice to ask any wedding photographer to make. Each wedding is so full of personal feelings and every shot has an emotional charge to it.
This year has seen me travel to Luxembourg to shoot a wedding; to some woods near Marlow to shoot a blessing where the couple used a tree as an altar; to venues I have worked before (Trinity Buoy Wharf and Heatherden Hall at Pinewood Studios); and in all kinds of amazing spaces. And I had the joy of shooting my first Indian Wedding.
And I have had the privilege of meeting some wonderful couples – beautiful, spirited, funny, charming, loved-up people who have trusted me to capture the beauty of their day in my own style of wedding photography.
When I look back at the year I can see a development of my wedding photography style. My taste for quirky offbeat-slightly-trad-but-not shots continues unabashed (thank you to my couples for being so game!); my love of observational documentary photography is still in full force; but the biggest development I see is in my love of epic, grand shots that place the couples in the landscape or in their environment. Big, wide shots full of drama and romance.
Here they are in no particular order. These are the ones that spoke to me loudest when I look back at my year – they’re the noisy ones who want my attention. So here they are.
I hope you love them as much as I do.
