Las Vegas destination wedding photography - Jen and Bryan

What better way to kick off my 2018 than with a wedding in America! I flew out to Las Vegas with Jen and Bryan to spend a few days with them, and snap them getting hitched at the Little White Chapel on Las Vegas Boulevard. 

The day before they got hitched we headed out to the stunning Red Rock Canyon for a pre-wedding shoot. Bit of a tip for you if you visit Vegas... make sure you take a bottle of water and some sun cream if you plan to head out into the desert for a photoshoot. Yep... typical Brit-abroad mistake made there! Luckily there was a visitor centre at Red Rock.

Despite visiting the U.S quite a lot (including getting married out there myself!) I'd never actually been to Vegas. I was really looking forward to see what the place had to offer as a photographic backdrop, and also excited to see how shooting an elopement abroad was going to sit with my style of photography. Well, I'm pleased to say I loved it!  Jen and Bryan were so chilled out and fun to be around, and the way they just let me get on with documenting their time in Vegas was bliss.

As you're about to find out, this is one of my longer blog posts as there was just SO much to photograph... so I'll shut up now, and let you scroll down.

Thanks again Jen + Bryan for booking me, and treating me like one of the family. I had a fantastic time, and really enjoyed shooting your week in America.

Dovedale pre wedding shoot - Jenny and Matt

Forests, beautiful riverside views, rugged hills, and lots of fresh air... this is my kind of sunrise pre-wedding shot... Just a shame there was no sun.

Dovedale is such a beautiful area. With its picturesque stepping stones, and trails that take you all around the local area, the place really does have everything. 

I met up with this lovely couple to photograph them for their pre-wedding shoot shoot, and hear all about their plans for their 2018 wedding. Jenny and Matt are getting married on my birthday later this year... if I don't get a slice of the wedding cake I'll be very disappointed! 


2017 - end of year slideshow

To all the couples that I photographed in 2017... thank you very much for having me along, and welcoming me into your party. It was an amazing year!

To everyone that booked me to shoot your big day in 2018... I can't wait to meet you all and create some gorgeous photographic memories.

Thanks as always to Clare and Jesse (my wife and son) for letting me head off for an insane amount of the year to snap away at lots of fun weddings. I promise to spend A LOT more time with you both in 2018! Love you both loads. 

Thanks also to my sharp-shooting assistant Anna Heaton. Not only has Anna shot some stunning photos with me at weddings this year, she's also been a massive help in the studio when it came to editing. A few of her images even appear in this slideshow too!

This isn't a collection of portraits, like the ones you'd normally see posted on my social media, but instead it's a look back at what I enjoy shooting the most at weddings... candid moments. Real, spontaneous, un-posed shots.

Documentary style photography is why I do this job year after year. It's what excites me. It's what I find the most enjoyable. And, as it probably comes across in this slideshow, it's what I find the most fun!

I could ramble on and on about stuff I've done over the past 12 months, things I've seen, things I wish I'd not seen!.... blah blah blah... but instead I'll just leave you to press play... turn the volume up... go full-screen... and watch my slideshow of my favourite photos from 2017.
