Rangefinder Magazine – 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2016 Nomination

Rangefinder Magazine 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2016

Moments over Materials– Aaron Storry


WOW!

I received an email back in August letting me know that I had been invited to submit my work to the Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography annual competition. I was nominated by an industry professional (thanks Claire) 🙂 and I had 20 days to submit 30 pictures which showed off my abilities as a professional wedding photographer from technical quality, artistic excellence, storytelling through to innovation in the genre of wedding photography. My chosen photos had to showcase all aspects of the day including getting ready, ceremony, individual and group portraits, detail and reception shots (so not just a set of my best 30 portraits!)

Rangefinder’s 30 Rising Stars is a big deal! It’s one of the most prestigious and recognised wedding photography awards in the world and being nominated is an incredible achievement. They only consider the best of the best, so getting this far is huge. Although I didn’t make the final 30 it’s still a enormous achievement and one of the highlights of my career.

From the Amalfi Coast, to coming into land in a private helicopter in the Warwickshire countryside. The laughs, cries and brief seconds of chaos that present themselves during a wedding day. Pure emotions, moments of intimacy, shared experiences and the joy of documenting beautiful things for beautiful people – I’m humbled and forever grateful.

Thank you.

    This is a breathtaking set buddy! Your ascent to the upper echelongs of world wedding photography has been at a dizzying pace. So much quality, personality and technical ability running through this set. If this wasn't good enough to make the final 30 I struggle to imagine what was. Take a bow....
