Well this dream continues… On Saturday evening the North West Professional Photography Awards were held at a black tie event in Warrington. Professional Photographers from Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, North Wales & Wigan all descended on the Park Royal Hotel for the Annual Awards ceremony & we did quite well.
I was awarded the Prestigious Wedding Photographer of the Year award..again, the highest award for a Wedding Photographer, a real honour as this award is the result of many categories. Not content with that we also were awarded The Wedding Album of the Year, we won this award for the second year in a row an achievement never done before & this was a proud moment as this reflects on our business in general as wedding albums are a joint effort between Jane & myself.
Then just as things couldn’t get any better, we were awarded the Studio Portrait Photographer of the Year AND The Under 5s (baby) Photographer of the Year. Our portrait side of the business has seen a real increase in demand over that last 12 months & to be recognised in this field is mindblowing. I am asked why do I enter awards on several occasions, quite simply to further & improve our photography. There is so much more to a portrait than a white background & so much more to a wedding than a dress, there is emotion, the story & of course the location. As I have said on many occasion anybody can take a picture but do they look or do they see, awards make us see!
Below are some of the images that we entered into the awards….
A huge thank you to our clients who without we couldn't have achieved these fantastic awards...now for the national awards, fingers crossed.D.
