2 weeks ago, during one of our busiest periods and in between our many weddings – we decided to give the 2012 AIPP Victorian Professional Photography Awards (VPPYs) a go. With a new baby and new studio last year, we couldn’t find any time to work on any photos for 2011. However this year, we said to ourselves that we had to do it, to showcase some of our latest work!
We got our Canson papers out of the cupboards, warmed up our Epson Stylus Pro 3880 and started frantically editing for the awards. Thanks heaps to Matt from Kayell and Seldex for supplying us with last minute printing profiles and materials. 1 hour before the awards was due (it felt like a university assignment), our images were all printed/matted up and we drove straight to the AIPP head office.
The awards judging day came along and we watched every one of our photos being judged online via Livestream and we have great news.
We are stoked to say, that we won 3 Silver awards! With another 3 prints barely missing out on 79 (1 point off silver)!
Thank you to all the judges and our super wedding couples for your support!
As we have decided to reenter these photos into the national awards next week, we won’t be able to show the award winning ones to you yet.
However, please find below 2 of the images that scored 79!
Wish us luck for the nationals!
