I ABSOLUTELY CAN’T BELIEVE THIS HAPPENED

WHAT AN INCREDIBLE START TO 2016

Yesterday the WPJA released their Q3 competition for 2015 from which it was the first time I’ve ever entered a competition. The Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) is a professional organisation composed of photojournalists and wedding photographers from around the world focusing primarily on documentary and wedding photojournalism photography.

I really feel this organisation understands my ethos of honest storytelling images, to capture the moment of a wedding day which can never be replaced.

I couldn’t believe when one of the images I photographed made it to the top 10 in its category.

I submitted this image which I shot with David Pullum of David Pullum Photography, It was within the chaos of the dance floor at the Savoy, London from which the groom was literally being vaulted into the year by his best men. I remember specifically looking at the back of the camera and thinking to myself-

“Wow what an incredible moment with such emotion”

It was a pleasure shooting alongside David. A great documentary wedding photographer and master of his craft.
