It’s that time of year when I nostalgically look back on the year, remembering all the amazing weddings and commercial shoots we have done. A year of images, capturing moments in time, never to be repeated but always remembered.
If I were to describe 2015 I would describe it as the year of happiness. We shot so many weddings and the spring was the busiest spring we have ever had. We managed to avoid all rain, there wasn’t one indoor wedding shoot. We shot a wedding where we made the impossible happen, and I look back on that day with pride, how hard we worked to make photography dreams come true and how amazing the shots turned out against all the odds. We worked at all our favourite hotels time and time again, which always is a credit to our work, we are doing it right.
The commercial side of our business flourished as well this year. We had the exciting task of photographing Chef Ryans’ food at the Porthminster Cafe, St.Ives best restaurant, and also photographing him in action at the St.Ives Food Festival. We worked with St.Ives most exclusive holiday let company Cherished, photographing the cream of the cream holiday lets that St.Ives has to offer. We got lots of bookings from private clients who manage their holiday lets themselves, but needed the professional photography to give their websites the edge. We shot Polmantor Campsite, the winners of the bronze award for best camp site, and rightly deserved. We had the exciting task of being booked to shoot Cohort Hostel after its fantastic re-furb, re-branding and re-vamp. It’s amazing and has put itself on the map this year. We went to Boskerris Hotel after a winter of re-decorating, re-furnishing and hard work and were asked to capture their amazing deck, views and guest areas. Once again this is St.Ives best small hotel, perfect in every way and run to perfection, a pleasure to photograph. Its been so exciting and we thank our home town for trusting our services and what an honour to be involved with the best businesses in our town.
We look forward to 2016 with anticipation. We have some exciting developments in both the wedding industry and the commercial photography that will be announced as soon as the page on our website is designed and up and running and we know that our supporters will be pleased with what they see. We have our wedding year already mapped out, with the few spaces left quickly filling up.
We look forward to shooting all those weddings, seeing all the new trends coming through and continuing to work with the thriving businesses that make St.Ives what it is.
Happy New Year to you all.
Jenny and Ricky
