Another fantastic year over - and if I thought that 2017 flew by in a wink being pregnant, then HO-LEEEE, I blinked and 2018 was over. Everybody tells you how fast the first year goes with a new baby, and let me tell you - they aren’t lying!
2018 was an incredible year for us personally and professionally - the crazy whirlwind that it was! We began the year with a two week old, launched an updated website with a fresh new look, and, with the addition of an online uploader feature, our Print Lab took off the ground running! 2018 also marks the first year where we weren’t either planning or in the process of a move - and we’re very glad to say that we’ll be staying put in for the foreseeable future! We’ve all settled quite well into our spacious, waterfront location and continue to love operating in St Georges!
This past year we captured some super fun families, sweet babies and bellies, and dreamy couples and gorgeous weddings. For the fourth year in a row we’re thrilled to have won a Wedding Wire Couples’ Choice Award, which is always a meaningful achievement having come from the kind words and support of our couples. We made a rather big change to our Full Day Wedding coverage in 2018, and are happy to say that it worked so well that we’ll be continuing offering a limited number of Full Day Weddings with the both of us capturing the big day. The win-win is that for us - we get to spend the day working together (after all these years we still aren’t sick of each other, must be love!!); and our couples get the benefit of a husband and wife, read each other’s minds, totally in-sync, two shooter pair!
Bittersweet as it is to say goodbye to a successful year, we’re looking forward to welcoming 2019 and the exciting things it has in store. Primarily, 2019 marks the official introduction of our Associate Photographer Programme! We’ve been planning this step since 2016 (and were fortunate to attend some lectures while at WPPI on building an associate programme) and are SO excited to properly welcome Ashley to the fold and re-introduce Tyler in this additional capacity. Ashley is a Bermudian studying photography at the Media College Denmark who joined our team in February last year as an intern and has made strides in building her portfolio as an associate photographer (she also keeps our studio in tip-top, zero waste, shape). Tyler, on top of managing the Print Lab, has completed a certificate programme through the New York Institute of Photography and looks forward to offering photography sessions as an associate. Mark and I are thrilled to add this layer to our business, and in doing so helping to make regular portrait sessions that much more accessible. Be sure to check back as we update our Dream Team photos and links to associate portfolios!
To close out a brilliant year, we’d like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to everyone who has contributed to making this year great. Our wonderful clients, our friends, and of course - our family, who have provided us endless help and support as we figured out the brave new world of a proper work-life balance! We cannot wait to kick off 2019 with you all!
