The International Photography Awards are sponsored by Canon Australia and received over 1,500 submissions this year. Overall winner Fabio Mirulla will receive prizes from the event’s sponsors, valued at approximately £6,500 (about R138 00) – plus the glory of the Wedding Photographer of the Year title.

“Great couples give me the chance to do one of the things that I love about my work, experimenting; that’s what happened during this shoot, thanks also to a great friend of mine,” says winning photographer, Fabio.

“This photo is part of an amazing wedding that I loved to shoot. “Both the bride and the groom were wonderful, and when I feel the connection with them, and they trust me, my work gets really easy to do.

“Their day developed in a roller-coaster of laughter and tears, starting with the getting ready where I had the chance to shoot this great photo, then the ceremony with the little children waiting for the bride outside the church, the moving moments of the couple that went to visit the grave of bride’s father and the happiness again during the party.”
