Awesome to be kicking off 2024 with the one and only Jay Doherty! If you’ve never met or heard from Jay before, you’re in for a treat, as not only is he a fantastic photographer, but he’s also one of the world’s loveliest humans – I don’t think it’s possible to listen to Jay without a huge smile on your face. Jay shares *so* much on the episode today, including:
- how skateboarding influenced his wedding photography career,
- a certain song he listens to before every wedding,
- his personal project called ‘Wedding Grannies‘,
- the time he got stuck in the toilet at a bride’s house,
- creating ‘Learning to Fly‘, the wedding photography retreat,
- the story behind his motorbike Reportage Award,
- why he backs up his images as soon as he can,
- becoming a Yoga teacher and the many benefits it can bring,
- why he was late to his own wedding,
- the importance of work-life balance,
- and so much more…
