My sister's favourite colour is coral

Sometimes my sister will sit with me as I'm working away on a wedding. The most recent wedding had the colour coral incorporated into its theme. 

'That is my favourite colour', she said. 'Peach?' I replied.

'No, coral'. 

Of course, coral. I totally knew that.

I'm always blown away by the richness and vibrancy of colour I get from film. Any digital shots of these dresses I captured were dull and washed out in comparison. Film just does colour better. I've weighed up the viability of using film, but despite the cost to me, I can't deny myself the beautiful colour that it brings.

31,536,000 Seconds

We all know that for every year there are 365 days. And for each day 24 hours and for each hour 60 minutes and for each minute 60 seconds.

Knowing this, it's sometimes hard to believe that the click of a shutter which creates a photo and captures our lives, takes only a split-second. Looking through these photos it amazes me to see how many split-seconds of happiness took place in the lives of those I photographed in 2014. How many split-second moments make up an entire day and how many split-second moments make up an entire year.

Every year seems to go so fast, it's easy to lose sight of how much has really taken place. And yet, so much does take place.

This lovely note I received from Sam and Leanne, who got married in a cloud, reminds me of how valuable a second can be.

"Words will never be enough to thank you for your amazing photos of our wonderful wedding day! We had the most wonderful day and I am so happy that we have your beautiful photos to remind us of that time for the rest of our lives! Thank you , thank you, thank you!"
