Curating your ‘best’ work at the end of the year is never easy. I could have put a whole post together of the slightly obscure things my eyes are drawn to when I’m shooting and there’s definitely a whole other post about the beautiful details that I’ve witnessed this year, but this one’s mostly about the people.
I always think putting together an end of year post is a good opportunity to reflect on your work, as well as setting your intention for the new year. My focus has definitely shifted a bit since I put together last year’s post and I’ve felt more sure that ever about what’s important to me and my couples; people, stories, authenticity, joy and colour.
On a personal level there have been a few big changes and events that have shaped the year.
I planned SNAP Photography Festival and it exceeded my expectations in every possible way. Pete quit his job to concentrate on graphic design and branding for creative businesses, as well as helping to run the Babb Photo office.
Pete quitting his job has meant we have a lot more freedom to travel, and travelling more was one of my big aims for this year. This year we’ve travelled the length of breadth of the country and it’s been really wonderful to explore parts of the UK we’d never been to before.
As always I am hugely grateful to my couples, both for inviting me to be a part of one of the most important days of their lives and for trusting me to capture it for them. The weddings both I and Alice have been lucky enough to be a part of this year have been immense and next year we’re looking forward to shooting in Tobago, Ireland and all over the UK.
And finally a disclaimer. I included WAY more images than I intended. Double in fact… that being the case you might want to look through this post with a nice cup of tea.
Thank you 2015, you’ve been immense. Here’s my best wedding photography of the year!
