Firstly, thank you for this opportunity!
My name is Jonny, Photographer / Album Designer / Self taught website builder / Framer and a new daddy.
I have been nominated by my brilliant customers & their families for “Wedding Photographer Of The Year Co.Derry/L'Derry” and without exaggeration, I could never have imagined I would be so lucky to be in this position. Heres a little bit about me, The One Photography and why I think you should choose me & my business for this award.
Who am i?
Im Jonny, a happy-go-lucky, friendly (I think) fella, trying my best to enjoy life as much as possible. I would love to call myself a young lad but im 30 next year so im verging on middle-aged - not cool. I have a beautiful supportive wife and a perfect 1 year old daughter. My mum & dad bought me my first camera 11years ago as a christmas gift and iv never looked back.
Who are The One Photography?
Im the 1 man band - I meet my couples face to face / I research the photo locations on my days off with my wife / I design the website / I design the wedding albums from scratch / I frame the photos / I clean & prepare the camera gear the night before the wedding / Preparing photos at 11pm at night for couples - but its ok as I love it!
I created The One Photography for me to make my mark and deliver high quality, creative images that people would enjoy for their lifetime. Other photographers seem to get bogged down in photo filters or how many likes they can get on social media but If someone goes to the effort of printing your image to display in their home or work - surely it cant get much better than that? I try my best to be creative in every photo I take, making one wedding completely different from the next,
''Jonny done our wedding and we couldn't recommend him enough. From Jonny came into our house in the morning until the first dance he made myself and my husband feel relaxed and at ease all day''

Our way of saying thankyou.
Myself + The One Photography are proud to support ''Lilac Cancer Care'', a local charity setup by volunteers to support and assist women going through their illness. They are based in my local town of Cookstown and rely solely on donations + income from their used clothing shop. After my mother-in-law was supported by this wonderful group during her tough time I decided The One Photography could run an event to raise money.
Here I am below proudly presenting a cheque in for £1300 with another cheque recently presented for £900 with our event in May 2020 well underway to smash that figure.
Why should you choose The One Photography be awarded "Wedding Photographer of The Year"
The truth is, there are alot of brilliant photographers nominated and I realise my chances are slim but if I can come from a young man with a camera and a dream and get this far - then I am close enough! All my brilliant couples must have voted for me to get this far, so I can only dream of receiving this award. The reality being with a young family & responsibilities, I have another boring day job when ive not got a camera in my hand. So its very possible that with an award as prestigious as this under my belt - that could all change. With the awareness that it may give me, The One Photography would grow allowing me to finally have the dream of doing this everyday.
