As I've mentioned previously it was my love of travelling that got me into photography in the first place. The exploration and the sense of adventure has pushed me to visit a lot of countries over the years, and having a camera in my hand gave me that passport to explore the lives and cultures of the people I've met along the way.
This has definitely followed me into my wedding photography. I’ve never been a photographer that has wanted to shoot at the same venue week after week, or even wanted to be the ‘local’ photographer. I love the unfamiliar, and I love the chance to get away from it all and go someplace different for a while, whether that’s in the UK or somewhere abroad.
Which brings me to Abigail and Deividas’ wedding on the Amalfi Coast. It's been a dream of mine to visit that part of the world, so there was serious joy when I found out I would get to fulfil that dream and document such an intimate wedding.
Just 26 guests.
In a private casa in Praiano.
On a cliff-side.
It really was magical. The ceremony was later on in the day to combat the extreme heat (though we were still feeling it at 5pm and beyond!), and there was a real mix of American and Lithuanian traditions as you'll see in the post (including the carry-the-new-wife-across-the-incredibly-long-bridge-tradition!).
A special mention must go to Abigail and Deividas, and all the family and friends who weren’t just amazing on the wedding day itself, but also on our day out together the next day. I truly appreciated you welcoming me in to that extent, and hopefully one day we'll get to see each other again.
