My second year as a full time wedding photographer has been nothing short of amazing and taken me from the Highlands of Scotland to France and everywhere in-between. And, in the midst of all that we also got a baby brother for Ida – you can see my other ‘best of 2013’ post here.

Huge high-fives and thanks to all the awesome people who have shared my year with me, including Nordica Photography, Daniel Aguilar and Esme Mai and of course, all my love, respect, thanks and affection to all the amazing couples who have entrusted me into their lives for a day to capture their stories. I hope these images can go some way to portraying the massive love and admiration I have for them and for this awesome, crazy art that I get to call a job!

…anyway, 157,500 clicks later, here are a 100 or so of my favourite images from 2013:
