A TALENTED photographer from Feering has continued to receive high praise and recognition after winning a prestigious award for his unique work as a wedding snapper.

David Michael Braford, who produces digital, scribbled portraits, scooped the Wedding Photographer of the Year accolade at this year’s British Wedding Awards, where he shared a stage with industry leaders Blenheim Palace, Jenny Packham and Kuoni.

The award came after an exciting couple of the months for the experienced photographer, which saw David host a fine-art exhibition in a fancy London hotel and have his work displayed at a luxury New York wedding show alongside icons such as Vivienne Westwood.

David says: “The past few months have been fantastic.

“Winning British Wedding Photographer of the Year is such an honour, as is expanding my creativity through my Scribbled portraits and receiving such a good reception when sharing them with my industry contemporaries, whom I hold in such high esteem.”

“My trademarked Scribbled portraits are the result of many hours spent messing around with technology and images.

“I think a Scribbled portrait is a great way to display an image in an exclusive format that is more contemporary than a printed photograph or painting.”
