I have noticed a trend already for 2016, it is taking until at least February for photographers to get their ‘year in review’ blogs out. I breathed a sigh of relief, that I wasn’t too late, when several others recently posted. The story for me is the same. Wedding season has gotten much longer. I started my 2015 wedding season at the end of January and it didn’t end until the end of November!
My season was much different this year. I took on less weddings and did more portrait and commercial sessions. It is great to have such variety. The weddings were beautiful intimate affairs. Cozy ceremonies by a fireplace, breezy sun glistened weddings on the beach, a chapel wedding complete with a pig roast, grande ballroom weddings and local park weddings. Each story was different and uniquely beautiful. I was able to start photographing surprise wedding proposals last year. This year, there will be even more surprises!
I focused a lot on storytelling. I want each wedding and portrait session I do to have a narrative flow that tells the story of you. I incorporated these techniques into commercial photography, creating a single image to tell the story of an event or product. I will also be working on this with some fine art pieces I started last year.
2016 will have even more changes, including a logo update, website upgrade and more blogs than ever before. I may have been quiet the past two months, but I have been very busy! ;-)
Have a look at my favorites from 2015 and stay tuned for the year to come!
