A few years back I bought a camera thinking it would be a fun hobby and also good for my journalism degree to be able to take photos for my stories. I’d not grown up around cameras but I figured you’d just point it at things and press the shutter and that was all there was to it.. I had no intentions of becoming a wedding photographer whatsoever..
Fast forward to 2015 and Rangefinder Magazine in the U.S. sends me an email telling me I’ve been nominated to enter their annual Top 30 Rising Stars of Wedding photography in the world.. I sort of laughed and left the email alone for a few days. I thought perhaps it was a ploy to get photographers interested in their magazine and that maybe they sent one to every photographer. However after speaking to a few people I was convinced that I didn’t have much to lose by entering. A few months later a return email comes back saying I’ve made this list!
Incredibly humbled and honoured to be included on a list next to some of the real hero’s of wedding photography whom I have such a huge amount of respect for. Thank you to everyone who’s participated in my journey thus far. To my clients, other photographers, my friends who’s birthday’s I’ve missed. You’re all amazing and I’m so thankful that you all have played a big part in me getting to this point in my work.
I’ve included some of the 30 images I submitted to Rangefinder in this post.
