Bronze award for photographer

Katie Hurlow has won bronze for wedding and children’s photography.

Cambridge photographer Katie Hurlow has won two medal in the Rise International Photography awards.

The Cambridge woman won bronze for both the wedding category and the children’s category, after submitting her work two hours before the entry deadline.

“I’m so glad I did, simply to hear the judges’ feedback and to know how my work stacks up against photographers from around the world,” she said.

“Family photography is my great love, probably because I have three little people myself, and I recognise that we don’t get to have these days over again,” said Hurlow, a newborn and wedding photographer.

“I want to remember what they looked like when they lost their first tooth or cut their own fringe. And most of all, I want them to remember more than what we looked like in a ‘say cheese’ photo.

One her favourite aspects of photography, Hurlow said, was the “relationship aspect” – “how they look at one another and laugh with each other,” she said.

“The authentic moments and real life.”
