Ok, I’ll be honest, I don’t enter my work in for awards or competitions, it's not been on my radar to be an award-winning wedding photographer, as talented as they are, I've just never been fussed.
That said, when I was nominated in the annual Global Wedding Awards 2021 by LUXLife Magazine I was rather chuffed that I won...
“Best Bride & Groom Wedding Photographer (Oxfordshire) 2021”
Woop Woop!! Happppeeeee!!!
So now I'm a bit obsessed and have to start sentences with... "Sorry to mention it again but... (I wonder who else entered?... was it an April Fools joke? - #creativeinsecurity... should I enter awards now?... etc) Husband eye rolls and teases me with a yawn! 😆
OFFICIALLY ANNOUNCING IN MAY
It’s always going to be far more important to me that my customers get the amazing wedding photographs they're expecting, so my time will continue to go into that process over and above submitting work to wedding photography and industry awards.
I'm not taking anything away from the many award-winning wedding photographers, who are truly exceptional, it's just that I'm more interested in the people I photograph than awards.
I just love creating images for my clients and always will, but actually... to be recognised for some of those images (I have to admit) is exciting and like a big fat cherry on a three tier wedding cake.
