2010 {the weddings}

2010 was a huge year for us personally and as such it was a slightly quieter year wedding-wise. We took 6 months of the year off and in the other 6 months shot 16 weddings, every single one of which I was pregnant at.
We took in New York, Manchester and Northumberland though as well as Scottish venues that were new to us and others that have become old favourites and I spent lunch hours napping in the back of the car all over the country.
There have been times over the year when I've wobbled, when I've looked at the work of other photographers and felt hugely intimidated but looking back over our work from 2010 I feel a sense of calm accomplishment. We're doing alright.

Yay, you picked all my favourites! I love love love all of the ones from New York, and the way you capture the huge range of emotions is incredible. You are both truly, truly talented. Congratulations on a wonderful year (professionally and personally)!

P.S. Loving the new header (only partly because I'm in it...)

Kirsty said...

And, is there anything more adorable than a bald baby with a big bow on their head?

No, there is not.

Kristy said...

Doing alright? I suppose, if you must be so modest. ;) Now when can we arrange for you to come photograph a random day in my life?

I love you guys. LOVE.

Your work is so touching, it captures some special essence of the moment. I truly wish we had decided to elope from Australia to Scotland, so you could photograph our wedding so beautifully!

Tarah said...

These are gorgeous, just wonderful and to have achieved such beautiful work while pregnant as well?! I'm so excited about 2011, can't wait for you to photograph our wedding in August :) x

Christiane said...

You are doing waaay more than alright! I really hope to be able to afford you and have you come to Germany to photograph my wedding in a few years.

You need not be intimidated by other photographers. Your work is subtle yet intense, and has a distinct voice that resonates from one photo to another.

Absolutely splendid.

I thoroughly enjoyed your work.
Bravo.

stumbled across your blog by chance, very nice! I really like these! Can I ask, what do you shoot with?

cara @ lillian and leonard said...

Thank you all so much for your sweet words.

Irene, we use Canons (5Ds and 50Ds) and mostly a 50mm 1.2 lens.
