2012: the year of enormous changes. After three years of doing wedding photography in Johannesburg, my husband and I decided to uproot ourselves and move to London; a huge decision not only personally, but also for my business. After all, I was still fairly new on the scene and had just started to get established. Moving countries meant pretty much restarting from the ground up, except of course that this time I had some lovely pictures of my SA couples to convince my new clients to hire me! I want to give a special thanks to Rachel and Geoff and Clare and Ricky, who hired me for their 2012 weddings before I had even set foot in the UK! Your confidence in me meant the world! And, of course, thank you to every other couple who had me shoot their weddings, engagement and anniversary shoots this year, as well as all the wonderful vendors who brought me into their collaborations and allowed me to shoot some amazing styled shoots!
Below is a selection of my favourite moments from the year. And there were a LOT.
Finally, this year seemed to have been the year of the babies for my past couples! I love being Facebook friends with my clients, because then I can see all the pictures of their new family members. So congratulations to Daleen and Aaron on the birth of Lilly, Chiara and David on the birth of Massimo, Kyra and Nick who are about to welcome their baby at any moment, and Taryn and Marc who have just announced they’re expecting! I’m so happy for all of you – and any of my other past couples that I don’t know about who’ve expanded their families, drop me a line and let me know!
Now onto the best of 2012:
