My New Olympus 17mm 1.2 for Wedding Photography

This year I am shooting with my Olympus a bit more so I thought i would got back to shooting with an old fave 35mm & 85mm set up (equivalent)  I have shot with fast wide zooms on Full frame and cropped for the past few years but having the EM1m2 lets me have a lightweight 12-40mm f/2.8 (24-70mm equivalent) as well as a Fast 17mm f/1.2   And wow im happy with this new lens from Olympus. I really cant wait to start the weddings this year. Here are a few faves of my daughter with the new 17mm 1.2 Olympus

Cumberland Hotel Bournemouth Wedding Photographer. Andy & Lydia

As I have mentioned before one of the highlights of my job is photographing friends weddings. I have known Andy for near on 9 years & I was honored for him to ask me to shoot his movie themed wedding. Highlights for me for this wedding had to be the flower girls flowers & the Groomsmens corsage's there was great detail and effort put in all throughout the day. Congrats Andy & Lydia your day was super fun, Thanks for the invite to stay for a drink both Me & Greg enjoyed the Whiskey afterwards :):):)

Halloween Themed Wedding // Nightmare on Gardner St // Brighton Pavilion Wedding Photography

I went to Brighton for my last wedding of the year, And what a wedding it was. The photos speak for themselves. Congrats to Emma & Gareth you both gave me the perfect orders to shoot this wedding. Fly on the wall and dont forget to enjoy yourself. The Music was fantastic as well as the food and Company, you have some truly awesome friends. Just to note the Vegan cake was lush :o)

I would like to say thank you to all my friends and family who have helped my business grow over the past year. I am lucky enough to know such awesome people who recommend me to there friends and family. This year saw me go Full Time for the first time. This lasted exactly 12 Months, I couldnt squeeze out the 5 month Winter gap with no Weddings until late March 2018. But I am focused on next year and hopefully i can go for longer next time. Roll on 2018

For the camera geeks. I shot the wides with my Olympus em1mkii (12-40 2.8) and the rest with my 5diii 85mm 1.4
