Quite simply, amazing, I’m totally blown away. 42 Weddings in 2015. Really doesn’t matter how many times I say it or read it, but it just seem possible that I really did that many, but I did. I started out on this weddings journey just a few years back, four and a bit to be fairly correct, but I honestly thought it would take a long time to be getting anywhere near that number in a single year. It would take time, hard work, lots of advertising, plenty of happy …

Jetpack Power

One of the major parts of being in business is being visible. Having a presence people can easily find and see. My online visibility has been very sketchy over the past 8 months and yet I’ve had very little time to be able to do anything about it.

Well I can’t say I was overwhelmed by the knowledge this blog post was willing to give away as good sturdy basis behind …

2014 : A Year Of Progression

Another year done, and this one held yet more steps forward in terms of business progression, along with the number of weddings and portraits shot and thankfully the number of happy customers has grown as well.   My 2014 started quite slowly with only one wedding for January and rather sadly it cancelled with only a few weeks to go before the big day, so that was a bit of a downer, so my first actual wedding shoot happened on the most romantic day of the year. Sarah & David …
