Brides hav­ing their say

Choos­ing best Coast pho­tog­ra­pher

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS - Sarah Diony­sius

A COAST pho­tog­ra­pher has been hum­bled af­ter brides around the re­gion voted her the best in the busi­ness.

Lou O’Brien, of Im­ages by Lou, won first place in the 2018 Sun­shine Coast Bride Choice Awards for wed­ding pho­tog­ra­phy.

The com­pe­ti­tion called for brides to nom­i­nate busi­nesses de­serv­ing of the awards and then it went to the vote to de­cide on the win­ners.

“As a wed­ding pho­tog­ra­pher I like to help peo­ple and know­ing that it has been recog­nised and that they love my work is re­ally ex­cit­ing,” Ms O’Brien said.

“It’s also nice to be recog­nised as a full pack­age and not just for the pho­tos that I take.”

Cap­tur­ing time­less wed­ding mo­ments was some­thing the Cur­rimundi pho­tog­ra­pher strived for.

“They need to feel com­fort­able around me to fully cap­ture the essence of who they are as a cou­ple,” she said.

“Ac­tu­ally know­ing that I made an im­pact in some­one’s life is re­ally re­ward­ing.”

Ms O’Brien said she had re­ceived a lot of feed­back since win­ning the award.

“I’ve had so many amaz­ing, won­der­ful re­sponses from peo­ple and a lot from past brides say­ing thank you,” she said.

She also hoped the award would give her a point of dif­fer­ence in a com­pet­i­tive mar­ket.

“It is such a dif­fi­cult en­vi­ron­ment at the mo­ment and it’s nice to have this award to show my pro­fes­sion­al­ism,” she said.
