After every wedding there are images that stay with me. This could be due to something unusual that happened, or something funny, or a particularly powerful moment during the day. It’s impossible to predict but I know the instant I press the shutter when I’ve taken a photo I’ll never forget.

The response was fantastic! And now, with permission, I’ll share with you what they shared with me: the photo they picked as their favourite and why they chose it, in their own words.

Next in the Favourite Image project is Helen, who sent me a quick note tell me which of her wedding images is her favourite: “Do we really have to pick only one?? If you haven’t noticed, it’s not easy for us to narrow down our favorites 😉 But, this time, we did it:” “This is… Read More

Cathy wrote to tell me about her favourite image: All the photos you took were great so it was hard to narrow it down.
