Where do I start with the year I've been looking forward to since the age of 8. Probably from the moment I finished watching Back to the Future Part 2, when I got a blank piece of paper and some coloured pencils, and started to compose a letter where I imagined what my life would be like in that far distant time of 2015...I reasoned that I would be an adult, with children of my own, and a 'serious' job - that must have meant some kind of office job. I also managed to draw a picture of what I'd look like at 33 (the mis-proportioned face had a beard with small eyes and a big smile), before sealing it in an envelope 'To be opened on the 21 October 2015', and then hid away to be opened on that very day. Unfortunately, I couldn't wait that long and opened it a week later...
My life today is very different to the one I imagined as a young boy, and something I couldn't have imagined ten years ago, let alone 25. My wedding photography has enabled me to continue my love of travelling as I was incredibly fortunate to photograph weddings in Israel, Austria and France, whilst also finding time to continue my passion for street and travel photography with trips to Myanmar (Burma), New York and Berlin.
2016 will see me travel equally as much with weddings set for Italy, Austria (again), and then the Big Sur in California. I'll also be heading to Cuba with the Myanmen boys in March, and then plans are afoot for Barcelona with the 8Street crew in October. I thought last year would take some beating, but this one is shaping up just as nicely!
A really big thank you to every couple who invited me to spend the day with them on the biggest day of their life last year - 'twas amazing! You really made me feel very welcomed and the feedback you gave me has been absolutely mind-blowing, seriously. Also a big thanks to Matt Tyler, Stephen Bunn, Michael Jackson and, Richard Paris Wilson for working alongside me at some of the weddings you'll see below.
Now, on with the show!
