Best wedding photography of 2020
Last week I photographed my final wedding of 2020. This means I’m ready to share a few of my best wedding photos from 2020.
It’s been a mixed year with lots of ups and downs (okay mostly downs!) for couples getting wed. But despite the hard times many couples did.
I was very fortunate these saviours asked me to take photos of their big day. Of course these weddings were a little smaller than planned but non the less they were great events and the highlight of my year. A massive thank you to all the couples that invited me along. If you can plan a wedding during a pandemic you can achieve anything!
Whilst my job as a wedding photographer has been put on hold I did get to spend more time with my own family. I love being busy and I’d have it no other way, but it was nice to spend time out with my 5 year old daughter. We spent many happy hours in parks, home schooling, teaching her the piano and pushing her on a home made rope swing. Good times I’ll always treasure! And yes, I did take plenty of photos (and video) of our adventures.
The break from work has left me rejuvenated, my creative batteries have recharged and whenever work resumes I’ll be there with an extra spring in my step.
As well as recharging my batteries I took an online course for some additional training. Whilst I’m always tying new things and looking to experiment it’s been a LONG time since I invested in a wedding photography workshop. For 7 weeks I tuned in on zoom and enjoyed Sam Dockers training course. It was great to do something different and it gave me a new lease of life. I picked up some great tips about automating my business and giving couples an ever better experience.
Off the back of the course I invested a little more money to improve my backup strategy. It’s going to make for pretty dry reading but I plan on putting together a blog post to let everyone know what I do to protect images after the wedding.
Other good news is that I won the best wedding photographer in the south west 2021. That’s the third time I’ve won this award from The Wedding Industry Awards. Although there was a little less competition than normal I’m still going to blow my own trumpet about it!
I wish everyone a merry Christmas and the happiest of new years. Whatever you’re doing have a great time and enjoy a rest with those closest to you (hopefully!)
Enough waffle, here are my highlights from the sty wedding photography of 2020 and happiest moments.
