2011 Retrospective

2012 has finally dawned and for the UK the Olympics looms large on the not-so-distant horizon. For me, 2012 promises to be my best year yet with the autumn booking season by far my must successful to date.

I’ve been seeing 2011 retrospectives for a few weeks now, but personally I’m not one to look back until the actual thing is done. With 2012 finally through the door, I figured it is time to review the year that was. These are all drawn from weddings (and one engagement session) that I shot during 2011 and have been chosen simply because they are favourites of mine. At least one of the weddings which features here has yet to be blogged. I’ll be remedying that in the coming weeks. For now, a very Happy New Year to you all and I hope you enjoy this look back at 50 images from 2011 that particularly caught my eye.

Rob & Steph Engagement Session - Temple Island, Henley-on-Thames

I will be shooting Rob & Steph’s wedding at Clandon Park in December and last week we went out on a mild and sunny afternoon in Henley for an engagement session. I don’t shoot a lot of engagement or pre-wedding sessions, but Rob & Steph were especially keen to have one.

Henley-on-Thames is a superb location. With the river running through the town, and thanks to one of Rob & Steph’s friends, we were lucky enough to have access to a particularly exciting spot. Temple Island sits a couple of miles downstream from Henley and is so named for the charming folly to which it is home. Thanks to their connections we had the great opportunity to shoot on the island and in the temple! To top off such an entertaining shoot we travelled to and from the island in quite simply the most beautiful boat I have ever laid eyes on. “L’Amazon” is one of the Regatta boats and is used to carry the umpires during races. She is absolutely stunning!

Rob & Steph were great fun to photograph and made my job infinitely easier by being a) really good looking and b) arranging a photographer’s dream location! Thanks to them for everything and for running with my crazy ideas - I’m looking forward to their wedding immensely! Below I’ve chosen a selection of my favourites from the afternoon. I hope you enjoy them:
