I was very excited to hear on Friday that I’ve been placed as a runner up in the International Wedding Photographer Excellence Awards. I love working as a family photographer but when I was asked by two friends to photograph their weddings this summer I felt it was a lovely chance to try a new area of photography. I worked my socks off (wedding photography is not for the unfit!) and did my very best to capture gorgeous photos of what were two amazing days. Happily both couples loved their photos which is the best bit.
I was really pleased with my work, so when I read about this competition in the Professional Photographer magazine I thought why not give it a go. I had to submit 5 photos from one wedding so chose a selection from Laura and David’s July wedding in France. They were very lucky with the weather for their wedding day and the light was amazing which let me get the most from the stunning setting. When I heard the news I was really chuffed to have my work recognised amongst other photographers by a scarily-good panel of photographer judges. So enjoy the 5 photos below and another huge thank you to Caroline and Alan and to Laura and David for inviting me into the world of wedding photography!
