My 2016: weddings

December 14, 2016

It’s that time of year again…. my 180 favourite images from my 2016 weddings!

I really limited my number of weddings again this year as I’m loving doing so much family photography, but the 16 weddings that I did shoot were absolute belters and gave me 100 weddings worth of amazing moments to photograph.

I really feel like my images are different this year in comparison to previous years… I couldn’t quite put my finger on it at first when I was going through them… but I feel like this year more than ever, I feel at home with my style and my priorities – that I don’t need the ‘money’ shots, the showy shots, the killer locations… that quite simply… people – and all the beautiful things they show in their faces, their bodies, their hands, their eyes – are enough… People are always enough.

So here’s a massive thank you to all the incredible people below who made 2016 one of my favourite years ever by confirming for me that all I needed was what they brought along inside them. You made 2016 so very bloody special.

    If they’re not ‘money shots’ then I don’t know what is. I think the definition of a money shot is one that hits you in the heart as much as the eyes, in which case that’s 160 money shots right there. Super good work Anna 🙂

    WOW Anna, although I’m not sure why I’m saying WOW, I’m not one bit surprised by the level and quality of work on show here, yet again you’ve captured weddings with such personality, amazing use of light and utterly brilliant compositions!! Mulled wine, champagne and whiskey all totally deserved this Christmas!! X
