A wet, windy and wonderful engagement session in Norwich

Rob Dodsworth Photography WPJA Diamond Award 15

It was wonderful to hear, from the WPJA that I won a Diamond Award this week for the photograph above of Rhea and Pieter on their pre-wedding photoshoot in Norwich.

Dodging the wet and the wind, these two, nonetheless, made the absolute most of the day. And Rhea’s hat and scarf combo added a good dash of colour on what was an otherwise very grey afternoon.

We grabbed coffee together and sheltering from the rain, they treated me to lunch as well. It was a great way to catch up with them about their wedding plans at the amazing Narborough Hall near Kings Lynn.

The Diamond Awards are the WPJA’s, first-ever, standalone portrait contest for Engagement Portraits. These awards are judged by news photo editors and award-winning photojournalists (including Pulitzer Prize winners) so, being only a recent(ish) member and being one of the first awards I’ve entered, I was absolutely over the moon to learn of the news!

Here’s just a few more of my favourites from the day – enjoy!
