2012 ~ Year of the beginning

The best year of my life is coming to a close.

The year my first child, a little girl, was born. An experience that can never be retold well enough. An experience we are hoping to relive in the coming years.

This same year, 2012, I also found my new love for recording one of the biggest days in a couple’s life. The day they promise each other, to each other, forever.

I love to photograph weddings. They are emotional, fast paced and real. The moments will never happen again and I am there to capture and store these events and emotions for my clients.

I began the year taking photos for couples, most of them friends. Nothing serious, nothing too special. I was taking photos of couples in love. I was enjoying this, but there was something missing.

Something important.

It was the moments, before and after the photos. The love, the laughs and the tears. I needed to capture this. I needed to record it all.

I needed to photograph weddings.

I was stoked – I had 5 weddings booked, even before I photographed my first, which was Jason and Tara’s on the 1st of September. A day I won’t forget, a day I was lucky enough to share.

It seemed that people were starting to like my way of telling the stories of the weddings I had attended. By my 3rd wedding, I had been published by The Knot and Style Me Pretty and also received an acceptance from Polka Dot Bride. Then, to top it all off, I received an email from SIGMA Australia early one morning. Now, I’m part of the SIGMA Ambassador program as a “SIGMA Pro Photographer”.

2012 is a year that will be close to my heart. It’s a year that changed my way of life. It’s a year that changed the way I look at the world, and at others. It’s a year which brought out the best in me.

Thank you to everyone who I have met and spoken to. You have all helped me in ways I can’t describe.

When I look back, I can’t believe it. I shared these moments. I captured the stories. I was there…

I still can’t believe it.

The best year of my life is coming to a close.
