Best of Wedding Photography 2015

I often catch myself thinking not a lot has changed from one year to the next. But I know things have shifted since 2015 took hold and I can’t un-see how my experiences have evolved my vision and craft

Many of you may not know this, but this business is now run by two people. My partner, Amy, is a great mentor and one incredibly talented individual who sets the bar high but knows when quiet and care are more important than being known and popular. Sometimes it feels like she pauses time for me, allowing me to reach that bar in my own way. I cannot imagine going back to doing this all on my own and am so happy to have her by my side, running this business but also building lives that might not always intersect with work

This year, Amy and I went on a month long trip to Europe in June. I remember the process quite well: it was the start of 2015 and we were sitting on the couch, having tea, keeping warm while paving our road ahead. We’d been in contact with a number of friends, all waving at us from across the Atlantic and offering us room and board—the kind of kindness that doesn’t always make itself so transparent

Our ambitions for the trip in June were big though: passing through Glencoe with its monstrous mountain range views (close enough to touch but too large to take home); covering a daring road trip through the Isle of Skye and finding isolation and a few friendly sheep on the northern tip of this glorious place; dropping into Amsterdam; and walking the sweeping west coast vistas of Ireland before making our grand stop in Paris with a short visit by train to Toulouse and Pessan. Not a lot of time to breathe between moments and invigorating to say the least. The trip looked a little something like this (all shot on 35mm film)

Throughout it all, we always had this feeling of home and knowing more about ourselves and the things that matter to us. The rest of the year was spent mostly in Vancouver and other parts of British Columbia and we didn’t mind this one bit. Sometimes you need to stay a while in one place to grow

So without further ado, this post reflects a few things that took shape this year in my art and in my head/heart, the ones formed by wild environments as much as they were by humans being humans: a certain mood or feeling of quietness, at times playful and quirky, puzzling and adventurous. I took a step back: away from the most epic of epic in every frame, the most beautiful, the most glamourous and outstanding details of celebrations. And instead am offering you the transient moments, the experiences that connect us, people and images taking hold of the idea that still waters run deep

Lastly, a huge thanks to everyone who had me and Amy (and our cats) in your corner. To those who offered us your kindness, your attention, and warmth. Thank you for supporting us
