Epson | NZIPP Iris Awards 2017 results {Auckland-Waikato-Bay of Plenty New Zealand wedding photographer}

Great news coming from Wellington {New Zealand} - Epson | NZIPP Iris Awards: our prints won Silver + 2 Bronzes in Wedding Creative category and 2 Bronze awards in Wedding Classic category.

Its a good experience. Winning awards not make you a better photographer, but the process of evaluating your own images, moving through your weddings and engagement session, picking photos what best speaks to you and according to your Voice and Style, re-editing them many times till its feels right and sending off to the public, share with photographers community, listen to their feedback definitely make you step up and became stronger. I totally recommend it to everyone.

I would love to say "Thank you" to my awesome clients who supporting me all this time {its pity I can't submit images from each wedding | pre-wedding session, every one of them so special and unique {NZIPP limiting the number of prints entering, but I still can keep them for the next year :)}.

Also Thank you to judges for valuable feedback {i especially appreciate their discussing over my Silver award image in Wedding Creative category, good to listen it online, so valuable feedback} - approximate quote:

Nathan: "Strong and obvious story... We are seeing the bride at the end of her photo shoot and she put a lot of effort... Its more like an anti-wedding shot, not staged candid moment. Its great photographer shared this images with our community." Sarah: "Its not just about the bride, groom there too..."

Enjoy these aware-winnig images and let me know if you have any questions!
