Two images considered “Best in Show” for the Brides/WPJA competition!

Tonight just got a little exciting!

Earlier this year, I entered a competition sponsored by WPJA.com (Wedding Photojournalist Association) and Brides.com. I always enjoy viewing the winning images from WPJA competitions as the judges’ comments push the photojournalistic aspect of my photography. I’ve actually never entered a photography competition before and am surprised/excited/estatic to find out that two of my images were selected as “Best in Show”!

Both of these images were taken during the 2007 wedding season-

Here’s the image that won 7th place in the “Culture & Religious Customs” category. Here’s a link to see the image on Brides.com

JUDGES COMMENTS: The woman has an intense passion and spiritual focus that no one seems to notice but the photographer.

The image that won 10th place in the “Kids” category. Here’s a link to see the image on Brides.com

JUDGES COMMENTS: The photographer captured a sweet moment. This little girl is so adorable with her side-glance at the man kissing her.

I feel so honored as there are some great images in this competition. And this could not have come at a better time as I have been considering entering other competitions this winter. I guess I will take the time to enter these competitions!

Thanks again WPJA/Brides for this recognition and supporting great photography in our industry!
