Slideshow: Favorite wedding photos of 2014
2014 was an incredible year with so much happening. I traveled around the north-eastern parts of the USA to photograph weddings – Connecticut, Vermont, New York, Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I even had the wonderful opportunity to travel abroad, where I photographed a wedding in Australia! Of course my photography involved the usual mix of portraits, families and headshots, as well as commercial work and corporate photography. For me though, weddings always stand out because they are such emotional experiences.
As a thank you to all my clients and their families and friends – and also to show off a bit – here is a slideshow of some of my favourite images of the year. Thank you to everyone who made me part of a most special day in their lives.
Also watch the other year-end slideshows of my favorite wedding photographs.

As usual, some of the images from 2014 weddings have been used in articles on Tangents. You might remember some (or perhaps all?) of them:

Congrats on a good year, Niel.
My fav image is the display (before the slideshow starts) of the slideshow; the couple against the golden water. What a great, great shot. Captures everything.
Have learned a lot from you. Thanks so much.

To get the ocean to fill the frame, I used a simple technique I’ve mentioned frequently here – zoom to maximum focal length, and then step back to find the composition. Doing this will give you maximum compression, and help you to better fill the frame.

Thanks Neil. Is there any one that you included because you are proud of it technically, maybe is was a technical achievement for you? Is there any one that you are especially proud of for any other reason?
4Neil vN says
I included 5 – 7 images from every wedding, so that it is a representative slideshow of my best work, per wedding.

That presentation is simply stunning. The images are wonderful and the music is pretty damned good. You’ve clearly had another great year. I wish you more of the same for 2015.
My personal highlight for 2014 was catching up with you at the Opera House in Sydney!
All the best

Great images and I’ve learnt so much from you……BUT……..you only seem to photograph beautiful people, every bride (and groom) looks like a model!
7Neil vN says
Thank you! I have to add that I used images from every wedding I photographed this year – there were none that I skipped or inclusion here.
