One From The Vaults!

2015-01-21_0029

As most good photographers do in January, I always review my weddings from the previous year. A good habit to get into; looking at a complete body of work can provide valuable lessons for the future!

This year was no different, but I decided to go a little bit further this time......here’s why!
Over the last few years, I’ve consciously moved more and more to a reportage/journalistic style of wedding photography. This change in style finally coalesced with my invitation to join the WPJA in 2011.

So this January, I thought it would be a good idea to delve into my archives from the start of that year, to look at my work from then and compare it to where I am now.

Turns out to have been a great idea!!

Now, I limit myself to no more than around 30 weddings a year. Not because I’m lazy, but because a wedding (for me anyway) is around 5-7 days work (I’ll be adding a blog post in the near future about this.) So to give my clients the high level of personal service I set myself I don’t take on more than I can handle.

Even at (only!) 30 a year, it’s impossible to remember the details and nuances from previous weddings. So a review has helped me look at where my current style developed from and also where I can take it forward from now, January 2015.

The first wedding I’ve chosen to feature in this occasional series is that of Claire & Paul, from 2011. Quite appropriate really, as Claire emailed me last week....she’s finally decided on the shots for her album!! No rush Claire...! :-)
