The 2016 photography bucket List

Wow! What a year, near to the end of summer 2014 after I’d photographed my first wedding, never had I thought that I would be as fortunate as I find myself now, with an established website, social media presence and a small photography following of fans and clients, I’m beginning to realise my dream of becoming a full time professional photographer!

From babies and children, through to couples and newly married couples I’ve photographed many, it’s been a busy year that’s for sure and next year is certainly going to be even bigger and busier a photography packed year… I honestly can’t wait! Along side my current amazing clients I’m looking forward to capturing the moments of even more happy people, working on a new exciting project and pushing my creative boundaries further…

As I am so excited to begin next year already, I have created a small bucket list of photographic to-do’s, so if any of you awesome and lovely people would like to help get through this list I would be so happy, please get in touch if you would like to get involved!

The bucket list 2016

  1. To photograph my first destination wedding abroad
  2. To gain a wedding award
  3. To be recognised in a national blog
  4. Photograph a same sex wedding!
  5. Launch my new photographic project
  6. Be part of a secret proposal (are you thinking of doing this, if so please let me know, I’d love to be there)
  7. Be part of an exclusive wedding in a forest or alternative venue in the countryside.
  8. Photograph more families, small, big, even extended families, families are so important to us, we need to treasure our time together much more!

Not to wish this year away already with the photography bucket list but here is a collection of just some of my favourite images that I have photographed this year from weddings, engagement shoots, landscape images and commercial work that I was fortunately commissioned to photograph… hope you enjoy!
