2013 has been mental! We have seen 26 amazing couples get married this year and as always we feel like we have gained a tonne of new friends along the way from couples to guests and wedding industry people.
We have travelled all over the country too. We have Laughed, cried, boogied, ate our body weight in wedding cake (its a un-written rule). We started with snow at our first wedding of 2013 then we have had ice, rain, wind, sun, blazing sun, fog and a bit more rain but all in all we can’t complain about the british summer too much this year.
In June we headed off for a weeks holiday to Ibiza. Having some wedding photographers in Ibiza meant plenty of pictures on our lovely new fuji xpro-1. Its a place we are looking forward to seeing again in the not too distant future.
In November we decided the time was right to invest in our own studio. We now have the keys and we are now working double hard to have it ready in time for wedding season 2014. We are so excited to show you all what we have been up to!
A massive thanks goes out to our families for being so patient with us, helping with little Fearne and for being such a support to us. We also must thank our wedding Industry friends for being there when we needed them and for being a huge source of inspiration for us, special thanks must go the the bacon bitches (you know who you are) and the oh so talented Togbook group both on Facebook. Finally a huge Thank you to our couples who have let us spend and document the most amazing day of their lives with them. You all flippin’ ROCK!!!!
2014 starts with a bang! Holy moly we are excited. Kelly is finally going part time in her day job and will spend the other half of her time working in the business. Our wedding season starts in February at one of our favourite local venues. Paul then flies to the US to spend a week on a photographer retreat where he will spend time learning and partying with some of the world’s most amazing photographers. After the workshop we fly out to Panama to shoot our first destination wedding. Yes PANAMA! woooo hooooo. From then on in we are in the UK and it’s full on from March until October. We are heading all over the country again with weddings in Wales, Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Manchester, Cheshire, London, Surrey, West Sussex and Hampshire.
In the middle of all that we are heading to Glastonbury for the first time with our good friends Shelly and Ed and we also taking Fearne to Disneyland Paris (Sssshhhh don’t tell her she doesn’t know yet). We cannot wait!!!
Thank you 2013 for being quite simply INCREDIBLE!
These are our favourite captures from 2013, they are not all ‘wham bam thank you mam’ shots but instead, they are shots that have touched us in some way and refreshed great memories for us because that is what photographs are all about for us.
