Nearly 20 months ago I started on my Wedding Photography journey... I can't believe how time flies!
I started that journey with Aspire Photography Training on their 'Weddings For Beginners' course, and because of everything I learnt on that course, and the following ones I've attended since, I'm proud to say I have 18 weddings booked in for 2018 - SO FAR! 2017 has snowballed into an amazing year and I'm already wishing the time away to be able to shoot all my wonderful couples weddings!
However, I know I'm only as good as the last wedding I shot, and I put my hands up to knowing there is still a lot to learn - I think every photographer can say that with the ever changing technology. Therefore I still always love to go back to Aspire and take part in their Wedding Stylised Shoots. Each time I do one of these day courses it's like I can throw all cation to the wind and experiment as much as I like, as well as bounce a-million-and-one different ideas off the other attendees, as well as everyone at Aspire and Jenny Heyworth, a wonderful Lake District Wedding & Lifestyle Photographer taking the course.
Soooo.... a couple of Fridays ago I went back to where it all started and attended their English Rose Inspired Shoot. This was such a fabulous day to be part of and it's always so lovely to see everyone at Aspire again. Every time I pick up my camera I feel like my photography style slightly changes and grows, and I hope that never changes, even 20 years down the line!
Anyway enough from me, let's let the photographs below do all the talking.
