After spending a week in Haiti and then flying directly to Vegas for this year’s WPPI convention & trade show, I have about a million things on my mind and many things to blog about. Haiti was a truly life-changing experience and I look forward to sharing images and stories when I am ready. For now I’m still mentally and emotionally processing everything that I’ve been through. So I figured I’d jump back in with something easy and just share some exciting news.

With some 3000 prints submitted for this year’s print competition, I was thrilled to be awarded 3rd place in the Bride & Groom Together category for this image of Emily and Andrew. Yay! It was beautifully printed by master printmaker, Jonathan Penney.

Perhaps I will even submit to teach a Master Class. If you are a photographer, what would you like to hear me speak about? Any comments and suggestions would be greatly helpful and appreciated.

Thank you!

    Love it. Great composition. I would have loved to have gone to WPPI, but I’m new to the field and just didn’t have the funds. Congrats on 3rd place. It truly is a great image. Love the dress.
