This post is extremely delayed but it makes it no less exciting as back in March this year we won the Runners Up award in the Reportage Photography catagory of the South West Wedding Awards. Whooooooooohooooooooooo!!!!!! It is the second year in a row that we have won this award and we couldn’t be happier. The truely deserving first place winner and amazing photographer, Alan Law Photography, pipped us to the post but haho ­čÖé Second place in the whole of the West Country isn’t too bad eh?! Plus all the votes were from couples whose weddings we have photographed so it makes it extra special. Thanks to all who voted, you are ace and we reaaaalllllllly appreciate the time you took to vote and your amazingly kind words.

Here are a few of the anonymous reviews that we received:

‘Hannah was just an absolute dream and it was a pleasure to have her at our wedding. It’s a huge thing to be able to capture the atmosphere of a wedding, but she did just that! Hannah’s photography skills are second to none. She put everybody at ease and just captured our day fantastically. We are so thrilled with the photos and our album and just couldn’t be happier. Hannah’s photos allow us to relive our day over and over. I have recommended her time and time again’

‘AVA Images (Hannah) was truely amazing and professional from start to finish. Nothing was too much trouble . Our pictures were just fantastic. We recently had our first daughter and went back to AVA Images for our first family portrait. Nick photographed us in the studio and again we were delighted. Nick was professional but also amazingly enthusiastic when capturing our daugthers first poses! We can’t praise and thank AVA enough for not only capturing our very special time but making it fun and enjoyable’

‘I cannot express in words how wondeful Hannah from AVA Images was before/during and after our special day. Before: we had an engagement shoot with her just to get a feel. We are not natural posers, but she made us feel so comfortable. She kept us in the loop before the wedding and asked if we needed anything up until the day. Hannah was so open to ideas (especially from Pinterest). On the day: ┬áHannah arrived and she seemed so exctied about the day too. I really felt she cared about our wedding. She captured all details whether big or small. She was so wonderful and as a vendor, she was so easy to work with. She worked so hard and really contributed to the smooth running of the day, which really does make a big impact, and she got on with all our other vendors too. She had very good professionalism but informal enough to make you feel at ease. Even our guests are still saying how lovely she was. We had a lot of amateur photographers (family members) at our wedding and going through all the 1000s of photos we received, we only had one photo of Hannah in the background. This really goes to show how discrete she is and how she slinks in with the environment and crowd. After: Hannah kept us up to date with the progress of her editing, and within two weeks we had access to the most beautiful photos online. She kept us part of the editing process for our photo album and canvas and we are very much looking forward to receiving it once it has been finalised. Amazing value for money, especially as we had a mid-week wedding.’

‘Hannah was our photographer for the day. She put everyone at ease and could easily have been mistaken for one of the guests or a lifelong friend! She was relaxed yet highly ┬áorganised and the photographs are brilliant. We cannot praise Hannah highly enough, she is brilliant at what she does and deserves to be recognised for it.’

‘We hired Hannah and her team to photograph theservice and do the professional photos of our day. At the time of planning the wedding I was living in Kuwait with my fiancee so all of our communication was done via email. I felt at complete ease and Hannah was always so quick to reply to any of my questions before the day. I described to Hannah what style of photosI wanted and could not have been happier with the final results – the photos were exactly what we wanted!!! During the day itself Hannah and her team went out of their way to ensure we were comfortable. She managed to get photos of all the guests without them even knowing she was there and also travelled to the reception venue before the ceremony to get photos which she didn’t need to do. The wedding album which we received was perfectly put together and we feel as though we are living the day again when we look at it – such a fantastic day and amazing pictures to remember it by.Thank you Hannah and Team’
