2018 in photos – by documentary wedding photographer Nikki Mills

As always, I ended up with way too many photos in my end of the year blog post, and there are still so many photos that didn’t make it from the favourites folder, I suppose these are good problems to have. Also a lesson to blog and share more, maybe 2019 will be the year of blogging!  If you don’t make it all the way to the end, no hard feelings 😉

Many clients ask me to describe my style, it’s difficult to say, I would say at the core I’m a documentary wedding photographer, but I like a bit of magic in photos and like things to look their best. Capturing the spark between people is what interests me the most. And most importantly I like some structured time for fine art portraits that show off the natural beauty of the spaces and places around you. Putting all those pieces together is how I approach a wedding, or any photos really.

Looking over these photos brings me so much joy, it reminds me of all the places I have been from spring through to the fall, so many parties and people, and new beautiful places I hadn’t seen before. I do this job with my whole heart and I feel something when I look at each of these photos. For a change I have decided to do a separate post with a small selection of family photos from 2018 as well, which should be cute at the very least 🙂

I’m a huge Brene Brown fan, and one thing she talks about is connection, and one of the ways we can feel that strongly is to witness and be a part of collective joy and pain. Weddings are full of these deeply sincere moments, and not always in the places that you think you will find them. Every one of us carries around stories of love and pain from our pasts, and it all bubbles to the surface on a wedding day. I’m always moved to see this and it draws me in again and again.

2019 is looking great, I’m feeling excited about all the new people I will get a chance to work with and meet along the way. I have a few weekends left for 2019, and I’m booking 2020 dates now. If you like my photos and what I have written, please reach out, I would love to hear from you if you’re looking for a documentary style wedding photographer.
