IPPA Awards & Trick or Treat

Things have been a bit quiet on the ground recently in terms of wedding photography. Was able to put a bit of time into choosing & submission of pics to the IPPA for the final competition of the year, and it paid off. Received a couple of bronze, seven Silver, a Gold, and an ellusive (and my first) Diamond award. Was having a stressful morning but news of the Diamond perked me up a bit ! Have uploaded the Silver, Gold & Diamond shots below. Workwise I had a corporate gig and a school shoot but a lot of my time recently has been clearing backlogs (on their way soon for anyone waiting !!) and re-aquainting myself with needles & threads for the kids Halloween costumes. I think I pulled every muscle in my body getting up to, and around the attic, searching for the decorations so was off down the gym to try get back into shape!! Back into the saddle next weekend with a wedding in Barberstown Castle so looking forward to that.

Kevin - Hi Paul – thanks for your kind words. Luckily for me the rapport was instant, I had only met the bride for a coffee a few weeks before the wedding, but the 5 girls (incl the bride) were all sisters, were as giddy as hell, and extremely welcoming – without this, the shot could never have happened.

Paul O'Mahony (Cork) - The Diamond is a cut above the rest… a memorable shot… the sort of photograph I’d tell others about. I got me thinking about how you won the rapport to take it.
