NSW AIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year

I was surprised and thrilled to be awarded the 2009 NSW AIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year! Unfortunately, I was away [on my honeymoon] when the award was announced, so I could not attend the presentation. This comes on the back of winning the SWPP International Wedding awards earlier this year. I am so proud of this particular award because the standard in Australia is very high, and to be recognised in this way by my peers whom I respect enormously; is a great priviledge for me.

My Wedding

David & I married today at a beautiful garden ceremony at Everglades Gardens, Leura; with a reception held at Silvermere, Wentworth Falls. I keep telling him that I had to marry him as it was cheaper than employing him as an assistant! Everyone wanted to know who would be my photographer, and what I would wear. Well, I was not going to have anyone tell me how to pose [as you can imagine], so we didn’t have an official photographer. I am fortunate to consider the photographers who work with me to be firstly my friends. Even though there were guests who were taking pictures anyway, my photographer friends couldn’t help themselves at the ceremony. Thank you guys! My gorgeous dress that I dreamt of was made by a wonderful dress maker. A beautiful find. Yulia McAuley. Special thanks to everyone involved, especially Lew & Cathy from Silvermere who were simply great. Catering for our night was provided by Paul and Vickie of Paul & Vickie’s Gourmet Catering. Their food and service has to be seen to be believed. Recommended by Lew & Cathy, their food and service was outstanding! Liza Abela, with whom we have worked before was our DJ. reach her via email here.
