In early September, I was nominated by one of my clients into The Wedding Industry Awards, held in the UK. The Wedding Industry Awards (TWIA), are a little different from other awards that I enter. Most awards, are based only on my images I submit, these awards, however, are based on the images I submit, my website, and more importantly what my clients for that year say about me. They are given a set of questions to answer and asked to rate me on various aspects of my business such as, how was I as a person, how much they liked their photo’s, how easy was I to communicate with and so forth.
I was honoured to be given the accolade of ‘Highly Commended’ in London, by TWIA. Thank you to all my couples that voted for me, and left awesome feedback too!
Here’s what some of my couple’s said about me:
“We met Rahul a month before our destination wedding in Pienza, Italy and knew that he was the right photographer for us. His enthusiasm and hard work throughout our 3 day event was extraordinary. By the end of the weekend he had become as much guest, as photographer. This was a credit to his affability, good humour and ability to perfectly document all aspects of our wedding (until 7am!) whilst melting into the background. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending him for this award.”
Sarah & Seb – Tuscany Wedding
“We feel so lucky to have booked Rahul, from the initial telephone contact, to the pre-shoot, and then the big day…he was brilliant. Rahul has a wealth of experience and ideas, crucial in helping us understand what was possible and what would work. His approach filled us confidence and instantly made us feel calm & relaxed (even at the stressful bits). All this praise is justified in the end result, the wedding photographs are perfect and captured the day exactly as we hoped.”
Seema & Toby – Woburn Sculpture Gallery Wedding
“Rahul Khona is an outstanding photographer and one of the best in the industry. His photography style is so natural and he really captures all of the emotions of the day. His portrait shots are breath taking. Rahul will go out of his way to make sure he captures the most important moments of the wedding day all the while putting his personal touch to his photos. His photos are so unique and stand out from all of the rest.”
Dev & Khushboo – Newland Manor Wedding
Rahul was very professional, outgoing and easy to work with. We had a preshoot which was so clever as we were able to meet each other again and get to know each other properly so he knows what we are looking for and he can also prepare us for the day and make it more comfortable and enjoyable. On the day again he was amazing he made it very fun for not only for myself but the whole wedding party, he made the photos very easy for the day and didn’t take a lot of time for family pictures.”
Servet & Ismail – Quendon Parklands Wedding
“Rahul has a great vision – he understood exactly what we wanted and managed to capture each of our wedding events so beautifully. We were incredibly happy with the entire process – from the pre-wedding photo shoot, pre-wedding events and then finally the wedding and reception. We especially love the way Rahul has captured all those special moments and intricate details which will allow us to keep reliving our special day.”
