Local photographer Jacqui Paterson has won a top prize in the annual awards run by the wedding website Hitched.co.uk.
Jacqui, who is based in Bute and Falkirk, won the Best Photographer prize in the third year of the website’s Breakthrough Awards, which are open to any individual who has started work in the wedding industry since June 1, 2010.
Jacqui studied photography in Edinburgh after leaving Rothesay Academy, and set up her own business, Chic Photo, in 2011.
She now has five years’ experience of shooting weddings, and more recently has diversified into portrait and school photography too.
Jacqui will be presented with her award at a ceremony in London on November 21, along with all this year’s Breakthrough Awards winners - cake designer Suzanne Thorp, hair stylist Alicia Bruce, florist Keeli Roebuck, stationery designer Bridget Marsh and the Modern Honolulu hotel in Hawaii.
