Rather than talking you all to death about the year that was 2012, we’re just going to give you a few highs and lows from 2012 and then list a few dreams, aspirations and expectations for the year ahead for us then, we’ll let the images talk. We would just like to take this opportunity to thank our families, friends business associates and most importantly our clients for your continued faith and support in helping us achieve our goals.
2012 brought some real highs, I (Paul) have finally been able to turn my attentions to business full time in recent weeks. We’ve ended up shooting more weddings than we had originally set as our target and we have got to learn from and work with some of the best wedding photographers out there. We have become recommended photographers to two great wedding venues. We have had our first website go live and it has been given praise by some of our industry peers for being so fitting to our style. We got to meet Bayly & Moore who created our ‘About Us’ video and who we adore and have now become friends with. We have had our work featured on some of the UK’s best wedding blogs. Boho wedding blog has taken on 3 of our clients for her diary of a boho bride feature
Lows have thankfully been few and far between this year but we have had one or two. For a while in the middle of the year whilst working away from home all week and shooting and editing weddings at weekends I started to forget wether I was coming or going. Deadlines slipped and catching up has been hard work. Social life has taken a nose dive as being a wedding photographer means our weekends are taken up with photography. We’ve missed out on events but because we have some great friends who believe in what we do they hopefully understand. Family life has been great, but due to schedules we have had less time than we would of liked as a family unit which as you can see has resulted in not so many personal pictures in this post. This is something that we intend to work on for 2013.
We believe that having goals is good to keep us striving for to become a better creative wedding photographer. Our prospective wedding totals have gone up again for this year, hopefully by the end of the year Kelly will have a bigger role in the business. We have one or two business and personal projects that we would love to become a reality this year. If there is a great opportunity to learn from photographers who we admire then we will take it to better ourselves. Hopefully Kelly will give me the go ahead to purchase a new canon 5D mark III and a posh coffee machine (thanks to Shelly our photographer buddy for helping me discover my love for coffee) to keep me working away through the day. Most importantly we are very much looking forward to getting awesome wedding pictures for all our 2013 couples and having loads of fun along the way.
2012 through our eyes…
