Winning Fearless Awards
It came as a total surprise that I won three Fearless Awards in the latest collection 56. I would have been very happy to win the one! To be a Fearless Photographers award winner is pretty cool. As it is the industry leading International Awards for wedding photography and so to be considered award worthy is very humbling. At the end of 2020 I was named in the Top 50 Fearless photographers in the world, which was an incredible honour for me.
The Winning Images
All five winning Fearless awards were photographed in a documentary style, capturing unposed wedding moments as they unfolded in front of my eyes.
Fearless Awards Collection 56
Prior to photographing this image I was actually having some food upstairs at a local Cotswolds wedding venue. Through the window I noticed the best man smoking his pipe, the smoke swirling gracefully near to the green bush. Luckily I got the shot that I envisaged with the continuation and picked up this Fearless award.
The second image of the bridesmaid wearing and admiring her mother's bridal shoes was a case of the right place at the right time! Being there at precisely the right moment is sometimes all it takes to be a Fearless Photographer Award Winner. This was a great day and you can see more from this wedding at Dowdeswell Court.
The third photograph I took at the fabulous Norton Hall. Whilst everyone was sitting down for the wedding breakfast. I noticed the page boy sitting down and gazing at the bride's bouquet. The sun was nice and low, giving that beautiful back light. To get the framing I laid down on the floor, making sure I didn't disturb the moment unfolding in front of me.
Fearless Awards Collection 58
This was awarded in Fearless Awards Collection 58. This was a quick chance grab photo during the cocktail hour. I turned around and for a brief moment, this young man decided he wasn't going to waste his drink. It quickly turned into a favourite image.
Fearless Awards Collection 59
I picked up this in Fearless Awards Collection 59. This image was a quick reaction after I hear some commotion behind me. The poor little Paige boy was under attack for his cup cake. Mr Wasp was pretty adamant that the cake was his also. Then sister pulls out her butter knife to help out. You can see my profile below on the Fearless Photographers award winner website.
