The best of 2011 in photographs.

Where to start? – 2011 has been a great year as a photographer with  a whole lot of fantastic photos taken and I’ve got to work with some really fantastic people as well. I think my photography has got better and better and the people I’ve shot have been a really big part of that. I’d like to think I’ve gained something from everybody I’ve worked with and I hope you get a flavour of them from their photos.

I was going to limit it to just my favourite wedding photographs as they’re such a big part of what I do, and I really enjoy them as well, but whilst weddings are a very big part of what I do, they’re not the only photographs I take by any means, portraits, boudoir and even some commercial work all play their part in what I’ve done this year.As well as all that I’m going to through a few personal photographs into the mix as well. I completed the challenge of completing 1 photo every day for 365  days and I’m kind of proud of that as well.  I’ve tried to say a little about what makes each photo special to me, and without further ado, please enjoy the photos.


Claire and Iain’s wedding at Clandon Park through one of those magnificent winter sunsets that only December can manage. We took full advantage for one of my favourite photos of the year.

I love this photo of Kunle and Kaz at the Four Seasons Hotel. Everything about this wedding sums up the best bits of London for me – I know its why I photograph weddings.
