we’ve looked at the “best of 2010: engagement sessions” and now it’s time to review the year’s weddings. what a year it was! i photographed twenty-eight weddings. the year before, only fifteen. pretty much double the workload—i absolutely couldn’t have done it without two people in particular: my second shooter leanne & my brother brandon. best assistant. best editor. win-win. they made the wedding season a breeze! well, maybe not a breeze: there were some tired moments, but it is the absolute best feeling to look back on a year’s worth of hard work. my first wedding of 2011 is on march 19th: i still have three months to go—i’m enjoying the break but i know i’ll be jumpin’ to photograph a wedding by the time march comes!
for the most popular weddings of this year [a list compiled based on the amount of blog comments] they lined up exactly with my favourite weddings. when i think about the three weddings i most enjoyed shooting this year, these three come to mind: alison & ryan on the coast, erika & malcolm on the island, rebecca & adam in the country. something they all have in common is amazing, amazing wedding style: very personal, do-it-yourself touches that i adore–as well as the fact that i had to travel to the weddings. the last one, not so much: only an hour from my house. i still stayed overnight at a hotel that night though. that’s what i love. i love traveling: love little get-a-ways but sometimes taking planes, trains, ferries & automobiles gets a little much. it’s nice to have to only take one of the listed transportation modes. ;) i thoroughly enjoyed turning all these weddings into “wedding weekends.” ENJOY! [p.s. i’m also thinking about doing a best of: 2010 details post. thoughts?]
