It's a bit of thing these days for photographers to finish the year with a round up blog; a chance to look back at their year that was. My personal twist seems to be always posting it a couple of weeks later than i'd hoped to! Although this year with good reason - as my first wedding of the year already is already done & dusted.
It was only when having a look back over the year that it dawned on me that this'll be my first yearly review with no Essential Hotels content - ending three years of a great working relationship with Nick and the Essential family. It was a working relationship that enabled me to make the step from a hobbyist photographer to something more. Ironically my last Essential assignment at the end of 2015 involved a trip to Stockholm, that doubled up as a chance to attend the inaugrual Way Up North Wedding Photography event - unaware at the time that Wedding Photography was about to usurp Travel Photography as my main interest.
So to kick the year off here's a few 2016 wedding (with a bit of creative license for the last bride & groom) photos... and hopefully it'll not be too long of a wait for the next post, as my new year resolution, or to be more honest, my new year vague promise to myself, is to blog here a bit more often!!
I am a wedding & family photographer based in Derry in the North West of Ireland.
