2015 {PHOTOS}

…and just like that another year has flown by in the blink of an eye. The past twelve months have been chaotically busy both with work and behind the scenes – we bought our first house, there were wonderful weddings, exciting commercial projects, lots of stop motion wedding videos (and a music video!), maternity and family shoots, engagement shoots.. it’s hard to sum up how much of a whirlwind it’s been – it’s been a really exciting yet exhausting time.

I’ve been really loving pursuing my commercial photography sideline, Ketron – Creative Commercial Photography, and also putting together more and more stop motion wedding videos for couples too (separate post just for this year’s videos coming soon). As always, I’ve had the real privilege of working with some really wonderful couples, people and families – meeting so many interesting and gorgeous people is still one of my favourite things about this job – so a huge thanks goes to all of your for inviting me along to your days or into your lives and letting me capture such special times. It’s been a real pleasure working with all of you and, as always, I’ve had so much fun, smiled and laughed so much alone the way.

I have so, SO much to show you and so much to catch up and blog.. but, for now, here are some of my favourite pictures and videos from 2015! A very, very happy 2016 to you all!

Life lately | Personal

So.. it’s March already. This year has had a much welcomed quieter start for me and my little family. There’s been catching up with friends, catching up with each other, hibernating under blankets on the couch, lots of cooking, and generally relishing the simpler things. It’s going to be another chaotic year (for reasons which you’ll read about below!) and I’ve been consciously trying not to overdo everything so far this year, and have loved having a few days doing absolutely nothing at all.IMG_8650I’m going to try and put this without sounding like one of ‘those’ people.. but on top of enjoying a few simpler pleasures, my husband and I decided to try and actually look after ourselves a bit more this year and set a better example for our girl. Health kicks in the past for us have often been short-lived.. we are probably the worst people I know for snacking on the couch with beers and wine.. but we are hoping to make some decent long-term changes and feel the benefits this year. I’ve a long way to go but I’m hoping to be nice and strong by the time wedding season kicks in!

IMG_8750Right.. the big thing this year is moving house. Anyone who knows me will be thinking “Again?!” as we’ve been house-hopping for quite a while now.. But this time we’re hoping it’s for good as we’re buying for the first time. We are leaving much-loved Leeds back to North Yorkshire at the beginning of next month, and will be moving in with my (very kind and very patient!) in-laws for a few months in between. In a sort of sad farewell we’ve been trying to make the most of what this wonderful city has to offer while we’re still here in between packing everything up for storage.

IMG_9111AND.. in other news.. I’ve been lucky enough to have a few exciting photography commissions this year.. pushing me out of my comfort zone. I’ve really, really loved it. Here are little previews from the Chilli Cake Deli..

Greco Brothers | Commercial Work

Two words: ICE CREAM. I was over the moon to be asked to try a little food/commercial photography for the Greco Brothers, who make a huge range of cornets, cones and wafers, and it was amazing to try my hand at something completely different to what I’m used to. Weddings are such fast-paced days, there’s a lot of running around.. trying to capture the day without getting in the way of it, working quickly.. To be able to step back, take my time, style what I was shooting to make the most of it and being able to alter and change how I worked with the natural light available was totally new to me – and I absolutely loved it.

I *may* have eaten ice cream for breakfast and lunch and dinner on the day I shot these.. Here is a little preview.

2014

creative-wedding-photography-alternative-north-yorkshire-north-east-009So.. 2014! I can’t believe it’s gone so quickly and it only feels like last month when I was writing my last round up post for 2013.. I worry, like we all do, that everything is passing by in the blink of an eye but then again it’s exhilarating to have so much going on and however full and busy, the past 12 months have been packed with lovely stuff. I’ve been lucky enough to meet what feels like a million gorgeous couples, friends and families, be part of so much celebration, witness so much love and feel so much joy on such amazing days.

With 35 weddings, the past year has been my busiest yet.. All so different and all so incredibly special in their own way. I’ve been lucky enough to shoot weddings in Italy, Morocco and France.. Winter weddings, Summer weddings, weddings in tepees, weddings in fields, weddings in city centres, wonderfully chaotic days, one elopement, my first Indian Hindu wedding, two double weddings, a surprise wedding masquerading as a Christening, DIY weddings, intimate weddings, crazily colourful weddings, a few mum-to-be brides (one with twins!), barn weddings, made some stop motion wedding videos, shot in fancy hotels, had weddings in the sunshine and weddings in the pouring rain. I’ve loved each one in a completely different way and would like to thank all the gorgeous people I’ve worked with this year again for having me to be part of your days – Its been amazing to meet and spend time with you all, and making real lasting friendships with people along the way really is the best bonus ever on top of a career that I already love.

Amongst all the wonderful weddings, families, babies, personal trips, rolls of film, personal times and memories that have been made.. it’s been, at times, a pretty tough year and I’m really looking forward to everything slowing down a little more at the beginning of 2015. And, without this turning into some sort of ‘acceptance speech’, I’d like to openly thank my family and friends for helping me, as they always have done, with my little business along the way. Whether you’ve babysat my lovely little Vivienne, given me some honest critique or advice, made me a coffee (or poured me a G’n’T), rubbed my shoulders, picked me up or just taken me out for a break, I appreciate and love you all – thank you so much.

So, here are a few (well, more than just ‘a few’..) favourites from 2014. Going through the thousands and thousands of photos from the weddings, family shoots, commercial shoots, engagement shoots, maternity and newborn shoots took so long.. But I did so with a huge grin on my face and finally I’ve managed to narrow it down to what you’ll scroll through below. I hope you enjoy having a browse as much as I enjoyed putting this together, and if you have a few minutes I’d love to hear what you think.

Hope you’ve all had a great Christmas break and all the best for 2015!

All my love, Sally xx

Reign by What Katy Did Next | Inspiration Shoot

Whenever Katy of What Katy Did Next asks me whether I’d like to be part of her next shoot I always say yes.. and then ask about her ideas. She is so wonderful at pulling together a collection and styling it to perfection that working with her and her pieces is always a dream.. but she told me this one was particularly ‘right up my street’. She knows I adore GOLD. We had wonderful models Katherine (who you may recognise from previous shoots) and Mumbi who stepped in at the last minute, but couldn’t have been more perfect.

Here is Katy’s latest collection, Reign.

Penny Masquerade {Preview}

On Saturday I had the chance to shoot Penny Masquerade’s latest three collections – Constellation, Tribal and Fossil Hunter. Sarah, owner of Penny Masquerade, makes all pieces herself, and each one is just perfect; I particularly loved the Constellations collection but in truth I wish I could collect everything! It was pretty cold on the day, and we wrapped up and headed into the grounds of Temple Newsam in Leeds with model Johanna, who looked so, so beautiful wearing each piece. More soon, but here is a little preview in the meantime – one frame per collection.Penny-Masquerade-Leeds-commercial-photography-001 Penny-Masquerade-Leeds-commercial-photography-002 Penny-Masquerade-Leeds-commercial-photography-003All rights reserved.

2013

It’s difficult to know where to begin.. it’s not the easiest task putting an ‘end of year’ post together but it’s joyous looking back at how much my camera and I have been part of – going back through hard drives and blog posts to find the images that stick out on my mind from this year’s body of work is wonderful, and makes me eternally grateful that my job brings me as much joy as it does.

This year has seen me go FULL TIME. I have put my freelance journalism work firmly on the back burner for now, towards the end of this year my workload just seemed to grow and grow – and next year is looking to be my busiest yet too. It’s a great feeling, and such a blessing to be able to work for myself doing something I love this much. We also moved house slap-bang in the middle of wedding season in August, which was as chaotic as it sounds, and now I have a designated ‘home office’, which makes a huge difference.

My work has seen me travel all over the country and beyond, which really is the best thing ever. From beaches in Scotland to the banks of the Thames in London, rural Staffordshire to the hills of Italy, the peaceful Lake District to Las bloody Vegas. I’ve also taken bookings for Italy, France and Marrakech next year.. It’s not what I expected in my wildest dreams and I really can’t wait.

I’ve been lucky enough to see families from shoots last year and see their children at the next stage in their lives, I’ve begun to do maternity portraits as well as newborn sessions, and amazingly enough I’m seeing couples whose weddings I photographed become parents, as well as meet their beautiful babies. Each step is a moment in their history and my heart melts to be part of each one. I’ve also carried on doing a little commercial work here and there, and there looks to be much more of this next year too.

And I’ve also managed to do a little more personal work this year too, which is something I was really aiming for when I made some new year resolutions in January. It’s harder than it sounds sometimes to pick up your camera on ‘days off’, especially in the thick of wedding season, but I’m always glad I did, and I hope to create even more ‘just for me’ next year too.

I have much more to share and blog from this year, but there just isn’t time, and I’m really looking forward to clocking off for a few days now and catching up with everything in the new year. A huge, huge thanks again to all my wonderful clients, past and present, and for everyone who has helped make this year one to remember. I had a blast and hope you did too.

Here is my 2013..
