Real weddings: L + M
Normandy is beautiful. But what happens when you put a beautiful bride in a beautiful dress and a beautiful venue with beautiful guests, then add some flowers, a sparkle of sunshine and a photographer’s devotion? Beautiful wedding photography full of emotion!
Laura and Maximilian came all the way from Germany to get married in Lower Normandy. The private venue was somewhat hard to find though did so when I stumbled upon a German car in the area. As the gates opened to this gem I discovered a hive of activity as girls bustled around a mountain of flowers like bees. Candle sticks, chairs, tables, beer, barmen, caterers and, well everything, all moving within the white marquee! Table arrangements done, I followed (at speed) Laura and the bridesmaids down narrow and winding lanes until behold, a converted barn… From this point the pace of the morning turned from beehive to gracious and thus continued the day…

Among the amazing images that gained awards, a photo of mine merited 15th place in the ‘Great Natural Light‘ category! This is one of favorite photos I shot this year and am happy to see it up there with this years winners!
4 Awards Gained!!
Welcome news came this morning as the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers (ISPWP) announced the results of their Summer 2015 contest. After shooting a long wedding the day (and night) before, I rested my aching joints and browsed many amazing photos with a nice cup of tea.
I soon came across a familiar image (one of mine) which gained 15th place in the ‘Ceremony‘ category. Then one cup of tea later, another of my photos popped up at 14th place in ‘Bridal Party Portrait‘. Happy to have two awarded images I continued admiring the work of fellow friends and comrades from France, Belgium, Britain and all over the globe.
Two cups of tea in, I was coming to the end of the results. But then another of my shots appeared at 14th place ‘All About Light‘ and finally another at 15th place ‘The Wedding Dress‘!! YES!!
