Well what is there to say! For a few months now at Alex Tenters Photography HQ, I have known that I was up for this hugely prestigious award, the Rangefinders Top 30 rising stars of wedding photography. As soon as I was nominated by the legend that is Sam Docker, I was thrilled to even have got that far, let alone in with a chance of going against some of the best wedding photographers in the world. For Sam to consider me, is the biggest compliment ever!! His work is faultless. So Thank you Sam. ( Beers are on me! )

Unfortunately it is a bitter sweet post as I didn’t win this time, however the judges comments and experience alone is a huge reward for all the hard work put into this year. I just want to take this time quickly, to thank all my couples this year. Each and every wedding has been truly epic, from rustic barn weddings, golf club weddings and marquee weddings. The people have made my year so fun and so enjoyable, my passion for this job is not changing one bit!!

What I am going to take from this, is a huge pat on the back for myself. The shortlist was 200 photographers!! Worldwide! For a little business in Kent, I am super happy with that and cannot wait for what adventures lie in store for 2017 and beyond. If you are looking for a Kent wedding photographer for 2017 or indeed 2018, get in touch now as they are booking up fast! Here are the 30 images I submitted:
