Brides, Grooms, Vendors…
To my bride and grooms, you guys rocked! My images are only as good as the people I’m photographing, and I’m so glad you had enough faith and trust in me to allow me to work my magic.
To each of the different vendors who contributed along the way, I might not have had the chance to chat to you all but thank you for your professional and tireless work.
To everyone else who were part of all the weddings this year: parents, grandparents, brothers, sisters, bridal parties, a big thank you for welcoming me and making sure I was ok throughout the day. I’ve lost track of how much kindness and generosity I’ve experienced in my travels, and it really makes the job so much easier.
Last year, I ran Ava Me Photography by juggling a number of spreadsheets and thought it would be sufficient for 2017. When things began to get hectic in the middle of the year, I knew I needed a decent customer management system. Studio Ninja has been a godsend, not only at keeping me organised but also saving me so much time. Cheers to Studio Ninja!
This legendary camera has been a game changer. It’s a speed demon that doesn’t miss a beat. I could go on and on, but if you want to find out more, head over to DPReview.
RAW Digital Lab & Image Salon
In the latter half of the year, with the weddings beginning to I began working with RAW Digital Lab and Image Salon to ensure I delivered my images on time. I can’t believe I hadn’t used them earlier. I still do retouch some of my weddings, but these guys have taken up much of the load, saving me so much time and bringing their retouching expertise to all my weddings.
To My Family
Though I truly love what I do, I’ve been away from my family a lot this year. If anyone deserves the ultimate thank you, it’s my wife, who has manned the homefront and kept my two little rascals in check, all while I’ve been gallivanting to weddings, or busy in the backroom editing photos, meeting clients, taking phone calls, writing emails, or spending inordinate amounts of time updating my social media. Lots of ❤❤❤
