Ever year I make three resolutions – Go somewhere new – Do something new – Learn something new!
I went on my first overseas adventure to Thailand and got engaged to my lovely Ben. About 80% of the weddings I shot were in new venues/places I’d never photographed at before. To name a few – Mollymook, Cardinal Coretti, a wedding ON Cockatoo Island, the Gold Coast, the Hunter Valley, North Head, Bombo, Kiama, and the odd abandoned building or two… – Resolution 1 – PASS!
2013 I saw my first traditional Cambodian ceremony, first Jewish ceremony, same day “trash the dress” with powder paint, I even did some family shoots. I’ve been planning my own wedding, which makes me appreciate my couples on a whole other level. You have all made it look sooooo easy. Who would have thought planning a wedding was so hard! – Resolution 2 – PASS!
I think I’ve developed “my style/artistic voice/vision/whatever you want to call it”. I’ve never been happier with the photographs I’ve created… actually I don’t think I’ve ever been happier with life in general than in this past year. I also picked up a film camera… or 60… for the first time. I knew absolutely nothing this time last year haha but thanks to some awesome friends and the internet I’m a tiny bit wiser today. – Resolution 3 – PASS!
2013….was awesome! Thank you to all the amazing couples who let me do what I love and help me create something really special for you. I’m honoured by the amount of trust placed in me to capture the stories in front of me and my camera. <3
