Starting Angel Wade Photography

Hi everybody! I've never blogged before and am not quite sure what I'm doing, where to start or where to go, but I thought it would be a nice idea for me to create a space where I talk about all things photography, from my weddings, family portraits, to my personal work and projects.

I started this website back in 2014 as a place to put all my photos together in a portfolio and create a space for my photography to grow. Until about 2015 I never really used it very much, only occasionally uploaded new photos, but generally the website was ignored. In June 2016 a lot had changed with my photography style and where I wanted to take my business. This June is when I found out the reasons I couldn't go to university and that scared me as for a year I had had my next 3 years planned out and I was excited! However when the plans changed I had no idea what I was going to do and all my plans came crashing down. A couple of days later I decided that I was't going to let higher education be my life priority so decided to go ahead and work full time as a freelance photographer, so start my business properly.

From here I updated all my camera equipment, updated my website, and stated advertising. This was the best decision I have made in terms of my photography career and I'm so excited to see where it take me. However in August I started working full time as a digital marketing apprentice, and am loving every moment of it! Although Monday to Friday is work, and my weekends are booked up with shoots I'm so happy and wouldn't give up either! Being busy and working hard towards two things I love is the most satisfying thing ever.

I've started this blog to document both my professional and personal photography, so you should expect me rambling about beautiful weddings, lovely families and couples, or some of my favourite places and people. I want to document ideas, politics, interesting people, and my relatively mundane daily life. At the moment I will try post once a week either Saturday or Sunday.
