So, I’m starting a Blog !!

So after all these years working as a wedding photographer, I’m finally starting a blog!!

Why didn’t I do it before? Well, I’m hopeless at website stuff (except photography!), not a lover of “social media” and I guess a little fear of the “unknown”. At this point in time I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to writing a Blog.

So why the change of heart after all this time? Well, I don’t know if anyone will want to read what I have to say but I do feel that my accumulated knowledge and experience is worth sharing, if only to help some people avoid making some of the mistakes I’ve made over the years. I also would like others to share in some of the fun I’ve had photographing weddings, and maybe laugh at some of the things that haven’t gone exactly to plan.

I’ve been taking photographs for over 30 years and, as we approach the end of 2017, have spent the last 8 earning my living full time as a wedding photographer.

In the coming months as winter draws in I intend to share my experiences of both the good parts and the not quite so good parts of being a wedding photographer. There will be some articles offering couples friendly advice about things to consider when choosing a wedding photographer, some articles aimed towards those considering starting a career in wedding photography and some stories about real wedding days showing why I love what I do.

As I said earlier, I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to writing a Blog so a disclaimer might be in order! I have no intention of offending anyone and accept that not everyone will agree with everything I say. What I write will be totally truthful and based on my own personal “real life” experiences. Others will have different life experiences and may disagree with me and I will respect their opinions as I hope they respect mine.
