2018 / Some Of My Favourites

Best wedding photos of 2018 by Lee Maxwell

2018, done and dusted. Simply a brilliant year of photographing weddings and meeting some amazing people along the way. This post was a chance to look back over the past 12 months and re-live those fantastic wedding days. Fantastic because that's what this job is. Being invited to one of the biggest days that a couple experience in their lives and documenting it all for them.

This is more than just a blog post for me. It's an opportunity. Any wedding photographer will tell you that the year can go by in a bit of a blur, especially in the summer. This is a chance to reflect and evaluate. Going through thousands of images and selecting just a few for a post gets you thinking. Appreciation is the first thing that comes to mind. I've travelled more this year compared to any other as a wedding photographer. You can see my Chateau La Durantie wedding photography adventures with Aimee and Jack, and also a family Kefalonia wedding photography from this year. There's been plenty of trips around the UK as well and I'll never under value the trust that people put in me to photograph their wedding.

Like every year before this, I want to keep progressing. 2018 was no different. I made some changes across the board really. Including some modifications to the camera bag, all the way through to how couples receive their images, and I'm pleased that they all worked out. The notepad is already busy with thoughts for 2019.

2018 Wedding Photography Collection

So this is it, 100 or so images from the year. In no particular order these are some of my favourites, which in itself is a subjective thing. These are some of the shots that make me smile and re-live a moment. That to me is wedding photography. The last words have to go to the amazing people that booked me as their wedding photographer, thank you. Thank you so very much, it's been a blast.
