It was one of those days, one of those nights, when I had to take a step back, take a deep breath, and think…  I really do love what I do.  To be in the company of such inspiring and inspired people on one of their biggest days…  It’s simply the best.

Nic & Josh, you guys are, and your wedding was, pure joy.  Thank you for inviting me to be a part of it.

This spectacular day is also featured in the latest issue of Modern Wedding Magazine.  Grab yourself a copy to soak it all up in print.  x

This little Venetian island can be found on any list categorising the most colourful places in the world…  And it’s on this photographer’s list of dream locations to spend a day with no plans and nothing but an old film camera!

When I was 15, I asked my dad to teach me how to use his camera – a Canon AE-1 Program that he’d had as long as I could remember.  The days we spent chatting about film, apertures and shutter speeds are some of my very favourites.  And I think they’re some of his, too.  Even after I graduated from a three year degree in photography, my dad would still proudly tell anyone who’d listen that he taught me everything I know…

And you know what dad, when I pick up that Canon AE-1 Program, and hear that familiar click of the shutter, I’m transported back to those teenage days in the darkroom, and I think…  My dad taught me everything I know.

I love this camera, and I feel so blessed to have it with me on my travels.  It’s the most beautiful connection to home.  x
