End Of Year Round-up

It’s Been A Minute

The last time I did an end-of-year round-up was in 2016, so I’ve included some images from the past few years in this post. I’m not sure why I’ve waited so long to do a round-up, but I enjoyed going through all my weddings from the past few years and being reminded of how lucky I am to have such an amazing job.

For many of us in the industry, 2022 has been a year of challenges, growth, and creativity. As we look back on the weddings we’ve captured and the couples we’ve had the pleasure of working with, it’s clear that the pandemic has impacted our industry in significant ways. Despite the obstacles, though, we’ve continued to find joy and inspiration in our work.

First, it’s worth acknowledging the elephant in the room: the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past two years, the pandemic has affected every aspect of our lives, including the wedding industry. Many couples had to postpone or cancel their weddings, while others opted for smaller, more intimate celebrations. As a wedding photographer, I had to be adaptable and flexible, willing to work with couples to adjust their plans as needed. This required excellent communication skills and the ability to stay calm under pressure.

That said, I was also able to capture some truly unforgettable moments this year. One of the highlights of my year was photographing wedding in Zakynthos, Greece. It is such a beautiful island and it really was great to be back there again. The couple had originally planned their wedding for 2020, but with the pandemic still raging, they had to move it to 2022. The ceremony was held on the coast, and the light reflecting off the water was simply magical.

Another wedding that stands out in my mind was an autumn celebration held at a historic estate. The couple had originally planned to have an outdoor ceremony, but a sudden rainstorm forced us to move everything indoors at the last minute. Despite the unexpected change of plans, the ceremony was still incredibly beautiful, and the soft, diffused light inside the estate created a cozy, intimate atmosphere. We were able to take advantage of the stunning architecture and decor to capture some truly breathtaking shots of the couple and their guests.

Overall, I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunities I’ve had over the past years as a wedding photographer. It’s been a challenging time, but also a time of growth and creativity. I’ve been forced to think outside the box, to adapt to changing circumstances, and to find new ways of connecting with my clients. Looking ahead to 2023, I’m excited to continue pushing myself creatively and to capture even more unforgettable moments for the couples I work with.

In conclusion, being a wedding photographer is a privilege and a joy. While the pandemic has presented many challenges, it has also given us the opportunity to grow and evolve as artists. I’m grateful for the couples who have trusted me to capture their most precious moments, and I look forward to seeing what the future holds. As we move into 2023, I know that there will be new challenges and new opportunities, and I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.
