In January this year, we travelled to London to attend the SWPP Annual Conference. On the last evening of that conference is held the Gala presentation dinner where the best images from across the world are recognised with the presentation of Awards.

I was honoured to receive two Awards out of 3 in the Wedding categories for International Photographers; taking out:

  • International Bridal Portrait Photographer of the Year; and
  • International Wedding Traditional Photographer of the Year

At the same time exciting and humbling since I was ranked alongside global industry giants; the absolute best of the best. It was strange to share a stage with them and receive awards in front of thousands of attendees from all over the world.




Until next time,
