WPJA Contest Winning Images

Just the other day I found out I had an image place in ISPWP’s Winter 2016 Contest and just this morning, I found out three of my images placed in the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) 2015 Quarter 4 Contest! This is my first contest with WPJA and I could not be more excited to be off to a great start with three contest winning photos!
If you’re not familiar with WPJA, I highly encourage you to check it out! The WPJA is “an international network of vigorously vetted professional photographers whose work is regularly judged by award-winning photojournalists.” Their Mission:

“To us capturing honest moments matters. So do integrity, trust and creativity. Our mission is to guarantee consumers the most extensive and exclusive network of award-winning wedding photographers available anywhere. And our promise to members is a beneficial fraternity in an elite group of the finest wedding photographers in the world.

I am so excited to be included with such talent and to have some of my photographs place well in my first contest! Check out my 5th Place Award in the category of “Fluid,” 7th Place for Reception, and 8th Place for Toasting/Speeches below and be sure to check out the entire winners gallery!
