BOOM, I started 2022 by being crowned The Wedding Photographer of the Year at the The Wedding Industry Awards West Midlands event. After being highly commended three times in the past, I had really hoped to get the win at least once and It was amazing to finally do that and kick off 2022 on a high. Once again, Your Perfect Wedding Photographer has named me in their Top 100 Wedding Photographers. GoHen put me in their top 50 Wedding photographers and This Is Reportage put me in their top 100 wedding photographers. Combining all this with some features in some excellent wedding blogs, 2022 has been amazing for awards & recognition. Consider this the awkward yearly blowing of my trumpet complete 🙂
Although Covid was so 2020, this year was still very much impacted by it, with many of my couples finally getting their big day after postponing from that strange summer. Getting to party with these couples was awesome, as was celebrating with my new 2022 couples too. Once again I travelled thousands of miles, crossed borders, slept in many hotels, made epic portraits, captured all the natural feels and shot weddings in every conceivable style of venue. It’s been manic, it’s been tiring, It’s been crazy…but damn, it’s been NEXT LEVEL. A massive thank you to every one of the couples that trusted me to capture their wedding day. The feedback I’ve had from you this year has often taken me to tears…Damn, I love this job 🙂
To the class of 2023, let’s bring our A-game and smash it.
Here are a few images from the last 12 months that I feel sum up the year better than any words can. I delivered over 45,000 images this year, here’s about 0.5% of them. Ladies & Gents, I give you my 2022…
