With 29 weddings under my belt and a few more booked for next year, now is the ideal time for me to announce that I’m taking a short break from wedding photos. Is it because I’m bored of weddings? Is it because I’ve had a bad experience recently at a wedding? Nope and nope. It’s because I’m getting married! I got down on one knee to my girlfriend a couple of weeks ago, and when I got up from my knee, she was my fiancée (and still is!).
With all of the preparation that will take, and the honeymoon afterwards, I’ve decided that I’m going to take a break from the wedding photography. Taking photos at a wedding doesn’t just involve turning up on the day and taking a few photos then going home; there’s quite a bit of work either side of the day, even without me doing digital post-processing. It’s quite a time commitment considering I have a full-time job during the week.
I’d like to thank all the couples that I’ve had the pleasure to photograph over the last few years (and those I’m going to shoot next year too) – it’s been great to share your special day with you. And don’t you worry – I’ll still be putting photos on this site; it’s only the weddings I’m taking a break from, not the photography!
