Today I learned some news that made me happy. I learned that I won the Best of Category in the yearly wedding photography contest held by Photo District News Magazine
an award-winning monthly magazine for the professional photographer. It is a very prestigious and respected magazine. Many photographers from across the nation enter their images. I was very happy when I found out that the image had placed; but today I was very surprised and elated to hear that it won Best of Category
This image was taken at Mercedes and Matt’s wedding 11/17 of last year. Their wedding was very emotional and I am so glad that they hired me as their photographer. I love this image but I never imagined that it would win first place in this highly competitive contest. I know that Mercedes is going to be very happy when I tell her the news, right after I complete this blog post.
This is a screen grab of the online version of the magazine. I can’t wait to get the print sample. I am going to get one for Mercedes and Matt too.
Update 4-11-08: I found a couple today. Mercedes, I am sending you one.
