As well as being nominated for Wedding Photographer of The Year 2019 I’m honoured to have been accepted as a member of three of the most prestigious photographic societies in the world. Fearless Photographers, Wedding Photography Select and the ISPWP – The International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers.
I measure and challenge myself against the best in the world. Every couple of months some 15,000 images are entered by the world’s best photographers and only a handful are awarded.
I have won awards from all of these organisations. What that means for my couples is that it drives me on to do the best I can for them. On the day I do not think ‘awards’ but constantly strive to make each shot the best.
Below are three of my award winning images and how they came about.
Cheryl & Joe
I love to capture moments naturally. I love the energy and emotion that is expressed in the connection between people. This image of Cheryl & Joe at Stirk House expresses that excitement and elation as are greeted by their friends and family.
Rachael & Kyle
Photos of the bride and groom together do not have to be overly posed. I just go with it and sometimes add a little direction. As Rachael and Kyle went for a quick dash the birds flew over the hedge to complete the shot – you can’t pose a flock of geese! All the elements came together for ‘the decisive moment’.
Anna & Will
Expect the unexpected. Who knows what’s going to happen and almost constantly looking through the lens means you get lucky and catch the wind like this.
