Happy New Year everyone!
It’s been an interesting year, a hard year, but also an exciting year for Sarah Morris Photography.
I chose to stop trading towards the end of 2013 due to many contributing factors, this was the wrong decision and I have since decided to ‘get back on the horse’ so to speak.
Going through my images from the weddings I have shot this year has confirmed that this is the right decision, I have read a few of my peers 2013 reviews and seen how they have been moved, some to tears, having opened up and looked through the photographs they have taken over the last 12 months recounting the people they have met, the experiences they have had, I read these and thought (alongside being in utter awe..have you SEEN some of the amazing work out there?!?) ‘REALLY? They moved you THAT much?’
Now I know; YES, REALLY, I find myself agreeing with them 100%, although Sarah Morris Photography is still in it’s infancy and I haven’t shot an enormous amount of weddings, the ones I have shot thus far really have struck a chord with me, every day was so special and so unique. I want to say a MASSIVE HUGE THANK YOU, not only to the families and couples who have let me into their lives for the day, but also to some really rather excellent friends I have made along the way, all of those photographers who have helped me and been behind me and supported me from the sidelines even though sometimes I have been a bit of a Negative Nelly and to my long suffering friends and family. Thank you all for making me realise that this IS really what I want to do, I am passionate about it and I am passionate about YOU and your day, selecting the photographs to put into this years round up has made me laugh, smile and YES, even shed a few tears!
I’ve recalled the timed bets on the speeches, trudging through sopping muddy leaves to get that perfect shot, watching the newly married couple sneak a couple of minutes away from their wedding party, the comfortable banter between family members, the excitement when the flowers arrive, the nervousness of the groom and camaraderie of his ushers, gorgeous children, helpful (if not a bit emotional) mothers of the brides, flowing champagne, laughter and tears, that first look, that first kiss, all utterly unforgettable.
I feel so honoured to have been part of weddings past and at the same time amazingly positive and full of excitement for this year and future years, for the people I am yet to meet, the weddings I am yet to shoot and the inevitable lessons I am yet to learn.
I really hope you enjoy looking back over a few of their precious moments…..
Thank you and a very Happy New Lovely Year to you all!
Lots of lovely love, Sarah xx
