2016 A Year in Review

Its All About the People

2016 Review-1127

For me, 2016 was all about the people.
I wanted to do the very best I could for couples, their families and to capture their day in a real and honest way so that when they looked back at their pictures, they remembered little moments, saw new moments, smiled, reflected and just generally felt that when all put together there was the story of their own day in their own individual way. It was the year I stopped doing requested Pinterest set ups – as all couples would remember is ‘oh thats when Jo set up the picture we said we liked’ instead of it being real and a true reflection of them, their family and their day. It was the year I pushed myself to really stand back, watch and look for connections. No pressure on myself to integrate myself in to your day or share your moments – I was there to see and feel them and capture them. It was the year I grew in a quiet confidence as I stopped comparison with other photographers and concentrated on doing the very best I could.

This year I got to shoot my first elopement, I received a booking for my first destination wedding and I grew the business to have a Summer Love Team so that we have regular second shooters and associates for when I am not available. I second shot a handful times as I wanted to hone my candids and I travelled to California to undertake training and see what its all about stateside! But all of that is nothing in comparison to the fabulous couples and their families and friends I have got to work with. All of your weddings are unique and in absolute honesty it doesn’t matter how many times I do or don’t shoot at a venue – because for me your wedding day has been all about the people, the connections, the relationships, the bonds – the story. Thank You for having me along for the ride and placing that trust in me.

2016 … The year of people, connection, moments and stories
