I am over the moon to say that I have passed my wedding qualification and received my Wedding Qualified status, so I am now qualified in all 3 categories (professional, babies and weddings). This is an awesome achievement that I am so proud of.

So what is a Qualified status?
This is what the Guild of Photographers say about it…
Our ‘Qualified’ status is aligned to standards of competence that reflect a level where the customer should be ‘pleased with the results’, when employing the services of a skilled tradesman (the photographer). In other words ‘Qualified’ indicates professional ‘competence’ to a level where the Guild is willing to recognise the photographer as an ambassador of the association , so those who achieve that level should be proud of doing so.
So which panels have I achieved a Qualified status in?
As most of you are aware, I specialise in Newborn, Baby and Child Photography and already achieved my Qualifications in these areas back in 207. As I also shoot several weddings a year, I also wanted to be able to achieve a qualified status in this area.
Wedding Qualification (QGWP)
This category required a selection of 7 images from each of 3 different wedding commissions.
Thank you to all my lovely clients who have asked me to cover their special day. It has been an honour and a privilege such magical days with you.
