2017 Best Moments.

When 2017 started I had no idea that it was going to be such a fantastic year. I have met and worked with so many amazing couples, guests and suppliers throughout this last year.  So firstly I would like to thank you all for making this such a great year and helping contribute to my 2017 best moments.

2017 Highlights.

2017 saw me nominated for West Midlands wedding photographer of the year and then make it through to the finals. I am so grateful to everybody that voted for me, it meant so much and it was lovely to read through your comments at the end too. Maybe 2018 will be my year, who knows…

In 2017 I shot my first ever themed wedding which was at Clearwell Castle. The theme was Sailor Moon which is a Japanese anime for those of you who didn’t already know. It really was an amazing day and I will get round to blogging the wedding soon.

Also in 2017 I had two weddings featured in National Wedding magazines which felt awesome. I am hoping for more featured weddings this year too, maybe it will be your wedding.

What 2017 means to me.

Creating this blog of best moments is something that I have been looking forward to all year. Due to weddings happening almost every weekend throughout the year, I sometimes forget about funny or emotional things that happened. When I look at a picture, I get taken back to the day and reminded of what the circumstances were that resulted in a certain shot. I run through in my head, the fun and laughter of some of the portrait sessions, or the atmosphere when Dad sees his daughter in her dress for the first time. It reminds me of how much I love doing what I do and how lucky I am to call this my job.

Something I would definitely consider myself to be is nostalgic. I love history and in my job I love capturing moments that are a part of your history. To think that future generations will look back at your photographs and see you on one of the happiest days of your life is an amazing thought. So much can be caught and frozen in time, the second that button is pushed.

Thank you’s

I feel so honoured that you chose me to photograph your weddings and still have to pinch myself to believe I am there doing what I do. I feel the same excitement for the next wedding as I did for my very first one. It’s this excitement that makes me keep on trying to better myself year on year. Thank you to each and every one of you for allowing me the opportunity to capture your day.

I hope you all have a fantastic 2018 full of health, wealth and happiness.

Dean.
