2017 was absolutely incredible. I photographed weddings all over the north west including Liverpool, Cheshire and Lancashire. I have photographed city weddings, farm weddings and tipi weddings. I have photographed a wedding with salsa dancers, a wedding with a 4 mile trail race as a pre wedding warm up as well as a wedding with my first ever first look.
Most importantly, I have met the most incredible couples, and their equally incredible friends and families, who have welcomed me into their fold with open arms. I am forever saying that this makes the world of difference, and it REALLY does. When people treat you like a member of their family you are able to take everything in and intuitively know when something pretty special is about to happen. I found it the hardest task to put together this round up as there are so, so many images that I love for many reasons. But what really struck me when I looked at my final selection is that the majority are just capturing a completely genuine, unposed and uncontrived moment.
This is what I absolutely love about weddings and capturing them. You can’t plan for what is going to happen but when you capture these split second moment it honestly feels like magic. I have lost count of the times that I have cried watching the most beautiful and special moments and how many times I have been crying laughing with wedding guests.
