I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was proud to win a Top 10 award in the most recent WPJA contests, since these are filled with many of the most talented wedding photographers in the world. Imagine my surprise when I checked my mail and TWO Top 10 awards show up — I had also won in the “Weather” category! That makes three for the first half of 2008, out of two contests. Since these are the only two photo contests I’ve entered since 2001*, I’m pretty happy with the results.
*Normally I’m not a fan of contests, but the WPJA was one of the first things that made me realize that the wedding photography aesthetic was changing a great deal for the better from “roses in brandy snifters.”
