Recent awards and accolades – 2013

It always feels a bit weird for me to talk about awards on my blog as it feels like I am boasting when the truth is I am always amazed at the recognition I have received. I tend to be in a constant competition with myself urging myself to make better images rather than looking at other peoples work. 2013 was a pretty good year for recognition that’s for sure. Thanks to my couples who put up with me and my crazy ideas, I wouldn’t be collecting awards if it weren’t for my clients!

Whilst we were in Mauritius I found out I had won the Admired in Africa Photographer of the year award. Not long afterward I opened an email to say that the image I had entered into the the Wedding friends One Shot competition had won!!! This competition was judged by the public at the Photo and Film Expo which is South Africa’s largest photographic expo. Shoow!

Then I found out I got an international Fearless award which is always a biggy for me as every time they hold a competition the competition just get’s tougher! There are so many absolutely phenomenal photographers in this organisation. Have a click on their site .You wont be disappointed!

Lastly but certainly not least I was included on a list of the Top 100 Wedding Photographers in the world. This really blew my mind!

Thanks again from the bottom of my heart to all the wonderful clients who have trusted my vision and particularly to Tash my assistant who is just the best!

    Just wanted to say that I love your work and that I often come back to your photos for inspiration. You’re so well worth all those awards!
    Love, Malin
