Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography
RANGEFINDER (Rf) – AWARD WINNING MAGAZINE FOR WEDDING & PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHERS

Rf 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2016!
So, Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2016. Very simply, THIS is the most amazing and exciting news I’ve ever shared, ever. I’ve been named by New York based magazine Rangefinder as one of their ’30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2016′ in the entire world. To receive an email out of the blue from these guys telling me I was nominated was one very proud moment, but to be included in the final 30 published names is something completely different. Completely off the scale, my biggest accolade to date, and I still can’t quite believe it.
