Awards and Praise

Go down for more!

Ok ok, so I might not have won an award for any kind of martial arts (just yet?!!), but I have slowly started to establish myself as an award winning wedding photographer. I’ve been doing this crazy “job” for 3 years now, and when I started out, I could never have predicted where it would take me. I certainly didn’t get into this industry for any awards, it was always for a love of weddings and creating images for my clients, it still is, but to be recognised for some of those images is like a big fat cherry on a table sized cake!

FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHERS AWARD – COLLECTION 25

My 3rd Fearless Photographers award, and another emotional image. David, who’s a tough New Zealander, turned a little soft for a brief second! Who’d have thought it, getting married can make a grown man cry?! It was an amazing day, if you didn’t see the blog post, you should!

FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHERS AWARD – COLLECTION 24

A real highlight from 2014 for me, one of my top 5 images gaining me a 2nd Fearless Photographers award. Emily’s dad delivering his speech became a bit too much for a brief moment, queue Emily’s re-assuring hand on the shoulder, and there you have it!!! The rest of their wedding at Grittenham Barn was pretty damn special too!!

My first Fearless Photographers award, and it was for a crazy ass formal shot of Liz and Neil’s wedding party! It took place at the incredible Fazeley Studios in Birmingham, and they wanted a formal shot with a difference, this was the result!!
