The title for this post is ‘best of 2017’; purely for making it more obvious what you’re clicking on.
However, I would rather not refer to these images as my ‘best’ images.
Sometimes I feel that there is huge demand in this wedding photography industry at the moment for creating ‘epic’ photographs and it’s really not what I’m ultimately interested in. I don’t swoon for technicality, I purposefully don’t strive for hyper-real recognition and my work doesn’t win awards.
I just want to create work that is honest to me and a genuine reflection of the day as my couples experienced it.
If it evokes an emotional response in anyone else then that’s an added bonus.
It comes down to your ‘why’ and mine is very simply because I can’t imagine doing anything else.
I want to work at my craft for my own personal selfish reasons; to maintain my love for moving forwards and also I want my couples to value that I don’t want to create anything different on their day from WHAT IS.
This was my first year using Fuji solely, all of these are taken on a Fuji X-T2 and either their 23mm or 56mm lenses. It’s been a learning curve and I’m keen to hear feedback on this work compared to previous years.
There is less personal work than before as I’ve been focusing on family and especially Jesse over the last 12 months. This is the year he starts school ‘properly’ so perhaps the 2018 round up will include more playful project images.
Motto for 2018: Keep life simple. Be kind.
