The Gallery: A Photo I'm Proud Of

I have finally remembered (in time) to join in with Tara Cain, from Sticky Fingers', photography blog, The Gallery. Now I just have to remember to join in every week... and sometimes maybe even use it as an excuse to go out and take a NEW photo.

The prompt this week - A Photo I'm Proud Of - was an easy one for me. Although the first photo that sprang to mind was from only a couple of months ago when we went to the zoo for my 2 year old's birthday, that one was mainly down to the bird standing in exactly the right place... the spotlight the sun was creating through the foliage.

However, the one I've gone for in the end is from three years ago. I took it at my friend's wedding. I was pretty pleased with it myself but other people raving about it has seriously increased its value in my own mind! Her brother asked me to be his wedding photographer as a result of this one photo, which he described as the best photo of the day (despite there having been a professional there too).

I guess, in a round about way, this photo is responsible for me becoming a "professional" photographer - it still sounds odd referring to myself as such. And for that reason, here is the photo I am most proud of:


  1. Oh that's lovely. Such a great photo.

    I'm still sorting my gallery post out!!

  2. She looks every bit the blushing bride due to the way you have captured her so naturally. Lovely :)

  3. That is a great picture she looks so happy and relaxed

  4. Thanks for all the lovely comments guys. I must take part in the gallery more often and also, just generally include more photos on my blog. :o)

  5. Wow, that's a beautiful shot, no wonder they loved it!
