For those of you who don't follow my wedding work over at Twisted Oaks Studio, I share blog posts here from time to time. At the end of each year, I put together a collection of some of my favorite wedding/engagement related photos, click on the image below to see the collection from 2017. There's never really any rhyme or reason as to what makes a photo a favorite, but I'm pretty proud of this year's collection. This was a year that I really focused on fine-tuning my style even more, focusing on capturing moments, sitting back and letting things play out in front of me while being less hands-on. Focusing on artistry and composition while anticipating moments proved to be challenging last year, but 2017 was much different as it became much easier the more I pushed myself. You'll also see editorial style photos, where I was completely hands-on and posed the couple exactly the way I wanted them, knowing in my head exactly what I wanted as the final image. My goal was to provide clients with a mix of both, while still having cohesion and consistency in my style that clients can appreciate and fall in love with.
Some of the photos in this year's favorites were chosen simply because they have a lot of meaning to them. There could have been something special about the moment when the photo was taken or the process that went into making it. That doesn't necessarily make them a great photo by any means, it's simply great to me. So, don't be surprised if there are photos that aren't all that impressive to you or leave you scratching your head. I think you'll appreciate the collection as a whole, and if you have followed my work for a little while, I think you'll be able to see the changes that this year brought to my style and approach to my wedding photography work. Don't hesitate to leave a comment letting me know your thoughts.
