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.
My favourite photos often tell a story, or just capture an emotion. The sheer joy of this photo of Martina and Warren’s London wedding is fantastic
I appear to have lost my iPhone during this portrait of Elif
This portrait, grabbed at Anne and Gordon’s Orleans House Gallery wedding makes me smile every time
Sometimes, my favourite photos are of the simplest moments
I really like the warm feeling of this from the riverside in Twickenham
The happiness at Jo and Rob’s Richmond wedding makes me smile every time I look at this
From Nick and Christina’s Persian wedding at Hampton Court Palace
These sort of details at weddings are just fantastic
The flower girls in this are just great
A very happy Sarah walking into Orleans House Gallery for her Twickenham Wedding
I love this confetti shot from Warren and Martina’s London wedding. There’s a lot of happiness in this photo.
I think this is probably my favourite personal photograph of the year. My daughter watching the sunset on holiday in Turkey
The Petersham Hotel was the venue for this stunning photography of Lise and Daniel on the terrace above the river Thames at Richmond
There’s a peace about this photography at Hampton Court Palace I just adore.
