Kelly Tunney was the first woman to be named AIPP Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year.
Born and raised in Canberra, a current hotbed of fine photography in Australia. Kelly Tunney originally followed a traditional path, but eventually decided that photography was her way to be awesome, and it’s been her life ever since.
She has been photographing weddings all across the globe for over 12 years now. She runs her own business and is also co-founder of the wedding collective All Grown Up Weddings, based in Canberra.
Her images embody the way she relates to the world – they’re candid, honest, fearless and warm; and they always manage to find the amazing in everyone. Kelly relishes in the agony and ecstasy of imagining and creating contrasts to play with in her images. She secretly enjoy the rush that comes with the fear of pushing boundaries as far as they can be moved.
Kelly is the current ACT AIPP Wedding Photographer of the Year and also, the 2015 AIPP Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year (the first Female to ever win the prestigious award in its 40+ year history). She was also recently awarded the NZIPP International Photographer of the Year and gained First Place at WPPI Wedding Creative Category. See more of her work at kellytunney.com.au
