Three years ago, I made a decision to get serious about photography. It’s something of a personal journey for me, to see just how far passion and a little hard work can take me. I don’t really have a long term goal, but what I do want is to be able to stand in front of you at this time each year and be able to tell you, my friends and supporters, that I believe I’m a better photographer than I was twelve months ago.
The final wedding I shot with Samir in 2015, was the amazing Sikh wedding of Gurpreet & Suresh. The itinerary was actually spread over two days, with ceremonies and celebrations in Bedford, Gravesend, Ilford and Canary Wharf.
Once upon a time, I took a few snaps of my friends’ baby girl as she splashed around in a plastic bathtub while her mum bathed her. The baby girl grew up to be a beautiful woman and, twenty-two years later, I found myself in the quite amazing situation of being the photographer of her wedding!
