You know when it’s been a good year for creativity when it takes two days to try and ruthlessly whittle down your favourites (and still have over 200 images) for the traditional yearly round up of all the amazing people & places that have found their way in front of our lenses in 2016.
To say that our job is an honour is an understatement. We absolutely love what we do and getting to spend time with amazing families and be a part of peoples weddings is the best feeling ever. To be trusted to tell peoples stories at these pivotal milestones is the highest honour we could undertake.
For many people 2016 will be remembered as a bit of a dark year! We saw many of our most beloved celebrities taken; some way before their time – then of course their was Brexit and the American elections that shook Europe and the world but for us we were mostly locked inside a bit of a bubble! As always we were surrounded by happy people and doing the job we love. This does give a slightly different perspective on things.
As the year went on and we saw celebrity after celebrity passing away it made me think of the legacy that they left; their mark on this world. I’m sure this would come as little comfort to the people closest to them but I couldn’t help but celebrate the life they led rather than their untimely deaths. For people like David Bowie and Carrie Fisher they have literally changed our whole society and inspired millions. It is sad that they are no longer with us but incredible what they have achieved with the time they were given.
We see that all the time. Couples that meet at uni or online and then change each others lives beyond what they could have hoped! We see speeches by Fathers welcoming grooms into their families like they are their own sons. Brides struggling to get their vows out as the emotion of committing to this other person is overwhelming. Babies that are just a few days old but instantly being met with unconditional love.
This is the effect that we have on each other. These are the people that we connect with and love and inspire – this is our legacy and these are our stories.Don’t let 2017 pass by without capturing your story. Contact us here today and lets get to know each other.
