2014 – What have I learnt…?

Rounding up the past 12 months, some of you may have seen my thanks on Facebook, to the many beautiful weddings and engagements I have been lucky enough to be a part of this year, however I wanted to extend this to everyone I have worked with this year.

I have many things to be thankful from the past 12 months; this website!, my amazing clients, the training opportunities, equipment & time people have spared and my long suffering fiance.

That’s not to say that 2014 has been filled with roses, there have been sad and stressful times, which people close to me will know. However dwelling on these will not help 2015 :)

So what have I learnt this year…..

  • Expect the unexpected
  • Never stop thinking out of the box
  • Be prepared ( haha like the scouts!)
  • Photoshop shortcuts
  • Being different is a great thing!
  • Working with animals, children & crowds is fun!
  • Set clear objectives and expectations
  • Don’t take on too much
  • Be patient
  • Experiment with styles and techniques
  • You can’t control where the road takes you…
  • Never stop learning
OK so this has wondered off into what reads as a “inspirational New Years speech”.

I think what I wanted to say.. is Thank you! To everyone for the past year (and more)

From the first wedding I photographed as the main photographer in July 2012 – what have you started Chris & Ali!! :)

To now: more weddings, photoshoots, studio work, events, and my first magazine cover this year – Yes Kanna I have framed it!


Bring it on 2015 I am ready for you, and I couldn’t be more excited!
