What to say about 2016...
It's been a crazy year, I've had some amazing opportunities and been involved in some wonderful events and shoots. It's easy sometimes to forget the positives in a year where there have been so many negatives that have been portrayed in the media and online, but its important to remember the best moments of your year.
For me, one of my highlights has been my first steps into wedding photography. Since I started planning my own wedding I've become a little obsessed with all things wedding based. This year I got to photograph two beautiful weddings solo, a traditional family orientated Jewish wedding in Leeds and a relaxed, fun and rustic wedding in Barnsley. I also worked alongside Olivia Whittaker second shooting two weddings, an elegant and emotional hotel wedding and a halloween themed alternative wedding on a boat!
Below are some of my favourite shots...
I've also had the chance to work on some great fashion, portrait and beauty shoots this year with some brilliant teams. There were a few familiar faces, and some new, and I had a chance to work alongside some of my favourite creatives and bloggers!
I also got the chance this year to go to London Fashion Weekend as part of the Canon team to shoot the catwalk which was a great experience and something completely different for me!
I got to work with the talented students at YAFTA and Mind The Gap again this year on their acting headshots, and I also photographed Joanne Hope, a wonderful woman and a full time Psychic. I couldn't have worked with a more varied but brilliant bunch of people!
Last but certainly not least I've been to visit some beautiful places this year too. I often take hundreds of travel photos and when I get back I get so busy I never edit them. I visited Norway this year, and saw all of the amazing views it had to offer. From modern architecture in Oslo, we took a 7 hour train ride, a ferry and two busses up to the breathtaking nature at Pulpit Rock. I plan on doing much more travel photography this year as I'm heading to the big lights of New York City and there are plans to visit the stunning natural wonders of Iceland...so keep posted!
So now on to the new year...what will it have in store?
So far I've got several shoots booked in to work with the fabulous folk at YAFTA again, a very exciting editorial shoot with one of my favourite designers and a new face, trips to beautiful countries and I've got a few wedding booked in already which I am so so excited about. I'm also getting married myself in September which is the most exciting of all, though I'm quite nervous about being the one on the other side of the camera for once!
If you would like to get in touch for bookings my diary is now open for 2017 and I will be taking bookings all year with the exception of September. Email me at info@enbphotography or using the contact form on the website.
