2017 Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year
Wot? yep thats what i said
Being rewarded for what you work hardest on is a pretty cool experience. These images were my submission to the AIPP Print Awards competition this year. I was seriously lucky to win over the approval of the esteemed judging panel and take home the 2017 Wedding Photographer of the year title. What gets me really excited though is that these images were created for my awesome clients that trust my vision and allow me to shoot the only way I know how. I think it’s also awesome that it sends the message to non AIPP members of the wedding photography community that your day to day work can be good enough to enter and you don’t need to necessary shoot for the awards.
Big shout outs to Perth Pro Lab for helping cook these babies up.
