Award Winning Photographer in Norfolk
I was over the moon to win an award yesterday for my documentary wedding photography from the folks at This Is Reportage (TiR).
These awards attract thousands upon thousands of entries from all over the globe and it’s incredibly tough to get one, with just the top 3% winning out! It’s also a little crazy to be featured amongst extremely talented photographers, both at home and abroad, who I have admired for a long time!
This image – The Groom Room – has featured on the pages of TiR before, where I wrote a blog piece describing how it came about.
Here’s just a little insight, taken from that post, about how I made this image …
“I had finished taking some close up angles on the groom, his shoes, his cufflinks, buttoning up his shirt etc but […] I had that nagging feeling there had to be something more. But time was pressing (as it ever is) and so, I packed my bag and was making my way (somewhat hurriedly) back to the bride to capture her exit from the bridal suite. I stopped on the way out, glanced back over my shoulder to say, “Good luck!” but instead, I bit my tongue and saw the frame that I’d been missing. […] It can be hard to think straight at a wedding sometimes, there are often a thousand and one things rushing through your mind and time is always slipping away but this image reminds me to relax, to stay calm and to look for the bigger picture. It’s always there, somewhere!”
It’s a real honour to receive an award from TiR, their ethos and tag line resonates so well with me – Because Moments Matter Most – at the end of the day that’s what wedding photography is really all about for me! ?
