It has been some year!
The business side is still going strong thankfully! I took on a lot fewer weddings this year to give myself room to breathe a little. Well, that and planning a wedding of our own meant needing the extra time! Tom helped a lot this year with the admin side of things and tagging along with me to weddings has been a huge plus. I’m very proud of the journey he’s made, even if we do drive each other insane at times. 🙂
Having him around especially when travelling the country has made it that bit easier manage the workload! I’m looking forward to seeing what 2018 has to offer for us work wise!
On a personal note, we got married! That was an interesting journey, to say the least, that after shooting over 250 weddings and being all consumed by weddings, it was another story entirely being on the other side of it all. I was grateful to be aware of what was and wasn’t important in making our day special.
This year was about learning to let go of a lot of things we cannot control (an ongoing journey) and trying to look after our own well being. 2018 will be a big year for that I feel!
There’s been a lot of changes this year. Lots of new faces in my life and new projects developing which is all exciting but I’ll be honest, I’m a little tired and feel it’s time to hibernate for a while and process reflect and regenerate. 🙂
One thing is for certain. I feel so unbelievably grateful for all the support and encouragement this year. I was so overwhelmed with all the messages of excitement, love, support and encouragement when we were getting married. They meant the world to me, especially in times when it all got too much.
I am so grateful to my past couples who still follow along and continue on my Instagram journey years after their own big day. And to all of our future couples, thank you for believing in me (and Tom) to capture your special day, it means more than you know and we are so excited for you and your own special day to be captured!
Here’s to 2018 and beyond!
