I was very excited to submit my photos in this competition in which the worldâ€™s premier international wedding photographers compete and showcase their work. Being the first contest I’ve ever joined, I was very happy to have 3 photos win prominent positions in 3 different categories:
I shot this image at a Jewish wedding during the Hora portion of the evening. This photo came in at the 19th place in the Decisive Moment Category:
This photo was captured during this bride’s trash-the-dress photo session which took place about a month after her wedding. This image came in at the 11th place in the Bride Portrait category:
When I met this groom, he asked me to not take pictures of him and the ushers getting ready in the morning, and instead he wanted me to capture him and his buddies playing poker. After rearranging the furniture a little, I asked him to take his shirt off as if he was loosing his shirt. He did so gladly and the photo took on a whole new meaning. This image came in at the 3rd place in the Pure Art category:
Well, it was an honor to have my work recognized among some of the best wedding photographers and photojournalists from all over the world. I can’t wait to participate in this contest again in the near future.
As usual, any comments are greatly appreciated!
