WPJA Winner!

I'm so excited that 2 of my images have placed in the WPJA and [AG]WPJA image contests! I feel very honored as photographers from all around the world compete in this competition.

This image placed 3rd place in the 'Getting Dressed' Category of the [AG]WPJA.

The Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association [AG]WPJA is a group of international wedding photojournalists, who capture unscripted wedding moments as they happen, and excel in the art of post-production image processing. The [AG]WPJA is a division within the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA); one which specifically promotes Fine Art Wedding Photojournalism.

This image placed 20th in the 'Action' Category of the WPJA. (Yes, 20th--there are 20 places per category, but I'm still a proud mama!)

Thank you to all of my couples who give me the opportunity to take these photographs and allow me to be a part of such a special day!

Lauren and Bryan

Lauren and Bryan exhanged their vows among the amazing snowflake hydrangeas and even geese at the beautiful Aldridge Botanical Gardens in Birmingham, AL. Just a quick thank you to their precious families for taking us in and treating us like their own. It was hard choosing only a few images for the sneak peak slideshow, but here are a few of my faves from the day. ; )
