My favourite wedding photos of last year
So here are my best wedding photos 2021. It was certainly an exciting year of major catch-up after the complete desolation of 2020. When things began to open up again in May all the postponements and rescheduled weddings came flooding back.
2021 was the busiest and best year I’ve had for weddings – ever! Here’s a slideshow of the highlights….
Life returning and couples partying accordingly!
So many people had waited for such a long time. On top of all that waiting came the stress and uncertainty of having to pick a new date and reorganise such a life-changing event. However, when the day finally arrived the atmosphere and appetite to celebrate and party was totally amazing…. without exception!
Going through all my 2021 weddings, plus the few small but perfectly formed weddings I did under lockdown conditions in 2020, has been a real treat. So many big wedding day moments surrounded by all the little moments too which bring everything together with real depth and emotion.
It’s the essence of documentary wedding photography and it’s what makes the narrative all yours, totally unique and the best way for you to hold the memories close throughout your lives together.
During 2020 I joined the Crear Collective and went out to the west coast for a few stints as their in-house photographer. It meant I could cover their elopements and wee weddings as the restrictions allowed and was vital to keeping a bit of income coming through the door in the depths of the pandemic.
I’ll write more about Crear in a separate blog post but what a fabulous experience! To work on the beach in all weathers and reacting to the changing elements in such a raw and emotive environment created some very memorable images. Shooting near water almost always adds an extra dimension to an image as the light reflects off its moving surface but to have the open skies and the Paps of Jura to work with is a dream for any photographer.
