The judges praised her for her work commenting that “It was a truly breathtaking album. A great vintage look gave consistency to the album, with a very strong stylized look that makes the most of the Las Vegas location. The couple’s personalities really come through and the photographer wasn’t afraid to use poses and wide-angle lenses to create an impact. The design of the album is really strong – making great use of breathing space – so images don’t look cluttered.”

The competition finalists were: John Nassari with an album by Sim Imaging; Sarah Oliver working with Album Epoca; and Mike Garrard with Henley Albums.
