Hayley + Phil's wedding at The Moat House, Acton Trussell, can be described in one word...EPIC! What a great day, with great people at a wonderful venue.

The definition of AWESOME = The Snap Photography Festival
Last month, before the wedding season kicked in, I spent the most amazing 3 days and 4 nights at Fforest, which was the home to the first ever Snap Photography Festival, with a load of other awesome photographers from around the world.
This was one of the most amazing experiences I've ever had as a photographer...(in fact, I could leave out the last 3 words!)
I've come away from the experience with even more passion for the job that I love so much. In fact to me, wedding photography isn't like a job because I love it so much...it enables me to meet awesome people like you, go to great parties, play with cameras, and make people smile.
Snap was more than just learning from, and with, a bunch of creatives. It enabled us to find our 'tribe'...people that we connect with! I, and everyone else that was/is part of Snap, have come away with many new friends.
Thank you to everyone that was a part of Snap 2015, and in particular the lovely Laura Babb of Babb Photo who is the person responsible for putting together such an amazing event.
If any of my photographer friends are thinking of going to Snap next year...my advice...DO IT!
As Laura said: "This is not a workshop and this is not a camping trip. It's a chance to be a part of something bigger, that will stay with you long after it's over."
Take a look at this amazing video created by the very talented Will Halfacree of http://www.scree.tv/
See you all next year Snapsters x
