A wedding photographer has been shortlisted for a national award.

Denis Bokej, from We Tell The Story, has been chosen from hundreds of entries and is now in the final ten of his category - wedding photography - under the hitched.co.uk Breakthrough Awards.

The awards recognise talent in the wedding industry for companies that have been in the business since June 1, 2011.

Denis, who lives in Riseley, turned his back on a career in real estate to pursue his passion for photography.

“After my daughter was born I was inspired to take photographs of her. Some friends then asked me to photograph their babies and soon after I received my first wedding request. I was totally hooked,” he said.

“We Tell The Story was set up as a small family business and photography is still my part-time job as I work in design and construction procurement. I absolutely love both my jobs as they are so different.”

One of his business pledges is to take care of the environment and ecology so he organises climate change awareness days. Some of them have been attended by more than 200 people.

He also offers 10 per cent discount to any customers who take action to protect the earth.
