2016 AIPP AUSTRALIAN WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE YEAR

Im not very good with words. I never have been, really. So I’m just going to start typing and see what happens.

So I guess, in short, a couple of weeks ago at the Australian Professional Photography Awards I was absolutely blown off my seat to be awarded 2016 AIPP Australian Wedding Photographer of the year.

Um… So I’ve only dreamed about this happening ever since I started shooting weddings back in 2007. So many photographers I have looked up to for so many years have been past recipients of this amazing award and to now be included among them is slap in in the face amazing and a bucket list item checked.

The level of work produced in this country is incredible – I have to give a huge shout out to my good pal’s Kelly Tunney and Nathan Madigan for being named as finalists in the wedding category as well. I want to throw out a HUGE congratulations not only to all of the other category winners but also to everyone that entered. It takes massive amounts of guts to put your work out there to be judged in front of your peers, by your peers.

I want to talk about the prints I entered (below) and why I entered them. Each year, I try to include a mix of images that showcase my day to day documentary and wedding portraiture ability as well as include one or two images that push the boundary a little. In entering boundary-pushers, I want to force us (me) to think well outside the box of “contemporary wedding photography” within the category. This year, I included two ‘experimental’ pieces and two prints that showcase exactly what was delivered to my clients. The overall goal being a submission of images that showcase reactive shooting as well as forward thinking and for me, this is how I need to work in order to keep myself fresh, inspired and self-critical.

How far can push it? How else can I deliver a visual narrative that’s may not have been seen before? I do this for myself and (of course) I cross my fingers and toes when that print turns around, hoping that a judge or two enjoy the direction I take my work and they fight for it. The other side of the coin with this approach is that you can crash and burn, but to me, its well worth the risk.

The image of mine that was the highest scoring print (first up below – scoring a Gold with Distinction 95) was an image that (before submitted) I struggled with. I personally loved it but I was told by a few others that it was too much of a risk. I completely understood where they were coming from and new it would be. I didn’t enter it until I had two convincing conversations, one with my beloved Andrea and one with my bestie Todd Hunter McGaw – Their messages were the same, and Todd said, “If you do enter it and it bombs, will you be ok with knowing that you submitted a print you 100% believed in, even if others don’t like it? Or you could enter an image that’s a bit safer, and not have as much adrenaline pump through your veins when the print turns around.” My answer was ‘the first one, thanks’.

Turns out it was worth the risk. Thanks, Toddy.

To give you an idea of the quality of work that was submitted at the National awards this year, you can head over to this link and browse through the different category winner’s portfolios for a visual fix (of course after you look through my blogpost…. right? … hello?). Also, there was a lovely little article published in the Sydney Morning Herald (with a little more information) which you can read here .

I’d like to finish off by thanking the most important people that I could possibly thank and that’s my clients since 2007 — for believing in my vision and allowing me to do ‘me’. I’m so grateful to you all for giving me the gift of being able to do what I do for a living (that’s the Oscar-speech-part that I’ve been crying into a hairbrush for the past 9 years. Nailed it).

Claire and Oliver {Literally} Rocked Out // Carriageworks Wedding, Sydney Australia

Oh man, this is the part I dread… How do I even begin with this wedding. Well, you know what. Im going to let the pictures take over and give it to you. In short, Claire and Oliver knew exactly how they wanted to architect the ultimate party if they could do it any way they wanted, soooo they did just that. All they had to do was throw in some of the best bands in the country, one of the best restaurants in Sydney, oh I dunno, the comedian Arj Barker (yup) and the legend that is Bree from White Rabbit Projects to help their insane vision it all come together and waddya get…. {Also, shout out to my homegirl Anna Turner for rocking second gun on this one with me, you’re a gem}

24 Hours and some change, with Leslie and Bradford in Austin, Texas USA

So last year I received an email from this legend named Bradford asking me to come out to Austin, Texas to document the day that he was to marry Leslie. I knew Bradford before this, as we had crossed paths a couple of times in the US at photography conferences, and I liked this guy a lot. The other thing I knew/liked about Bradford is that he is a stupid-talented wedding photographer (hence the path-crossing at conferences). Anyway, a few emails, months, plane rides and drips of sweat later, myself and my amazing partner in life and crime, Andrea (who shot this insane wedding with me), arrive in Texas to the warmest welcome. What happened next is documented below in two parts.

Day One & Day Two.

They say everything is bigger in Texas. Well, my friends, that goes for this blog post as well. I hope you make it all the way to the end, block out 10 mins, grab a drink sit back and have a scroll through the 24 hours (and some change) we spent with the (now) Martens, y’all. I swear you will have a blast.

Bradford, Leslie, thank you for entrusting the task of documenting your day with us, it really was an honour. Love, Dan (and Andrea).

From Andrea’s Journal o the night

“My favourite time of the day was a fully unplanned one. When after all was said and done (and 150 people had danced and drank and ate their way through a massive sound system and a five hour dance floor), it was the 1:00 am shut off for the mood lighting and the best DJ on the planet earth (The Flashdance). They turned on the tin lights and shut off the strobes. “Time to get on the shuttle bus everyone!” the planner yelled out to the remaining 30 people (including us). With that, the Mr. Dance, who had been throwing down tracks like a crazy man, turned on a slow song while he packed up his gear. The song turned out to be “The Bad Days” by David Ramirez, and was one of the couple’s self proclaimed anthems.

Without a word or a pause, Bradford grabbed Leslie and held her tight and close, in such an intimate embrace I was almost inclined to look away. About 15 of us sat on the slide lines of the crumpled glitter-covered d-floor, under the fluorescent lights, and watched them sway and lip-sync to one another for the 4 minutes of the song. The bright lights, the flash, the planning, and the mania of the wedding day were gone. As all of us were sitting there watching, suddenly those two were the only ones in the room.

I thought, ‘There it is. That’s why we’re here.’
