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 …

Now 100% Photographer

Dominic Dorey Blog, News 1 Comment

A couple of weeks back on my Facebook page I posted that I was going to be making a big and maybe scary decision, and the result of that decision means that rather unbelievably I can say I’m now 100% photographer! What, you mean you weren’t 100% before now? I hear you say.

2012 for many it seems has been a bit of a naff year, and in many respect its been just that for me to but my photography business has taken strides in the right direction, and although those steps are relatively small I had no idea these steps would ever really happen. The Oz Family I had been a hobbyist photographer for many years and I’ve been lucky enough to have a varied amount of people, friends, family, photographers (known & unknown to me) compliment me on the pictures that …
