2016.

2016 was a year of milestones for us. Five full years in business, passing the 200 weddings mark, and by Neal's not very scientific calculation, taking our millionth photo together as The Campbells. 

That is a lot of glimpses into the human condition and it's what makes us value our jobs. You'll be glad to know that there aren't a million photos in this post, but this small selection does represent the reasons why we still love telling these stories. Moments of stillness, moments of hilarity, moments of raw emotion, and many moments of love. 

Five years in and we're just getting started. Bring on the next five.

Portmeirion: Architectural marvel, the setting for cult sixties TV show The Prisoner, and for the last four years home to Festival Number 6.

Neal has been trying to make it over to North Wales for this festival for the last few years, but wedding commitments meant he was unable to make it until this year.  It's safe to say that it was worth the wait.

There can't be many better settings for a festival than the surreal Portmeirion, with it's Italianate architecture and it's beautiful woods.  The music didn't disappoint either with almost too many highlights to mention, but closing the festival with Grace Jones, the High Priestess of Weird herself, could not have been more fitting.

So, who's up for 2016?

Donegal to Denver, Randalstown to Rome, we've been lucky enough to see a bit of the world this year.  Cameras were brought.  The relentless urge to document and capture and remember does not end with weddings for us.  

These are the highlights of Neal's personal photography from 2014.  All film and all developed in our kitchen.  Carving out the time to shoot for ourselves is important, both in terms of staying sane and developing as photographers.  This is the result.
