Thank you to everyone who reviewed me on Wedding Wire.
This photograph was taken during a reception at the Osborn Castle at Cat Rock in Garrison, NY. This summer day was particularly warm! This image won 7th place in the WPJA Q4 2008 Reception Category.
The WPJA is a sought after Wedding Photojournalism Association for photographers. I am honored to have two images selected for their international 2007 fourth quarter contest.
This emotional image of Claire getting ready won fourth place in the Getting Ready category.
WPJA Getting Ready
JUDGES COMMENTS: Nice emotion on the bride framed nicely by other faces in the mirror as she gets her hair done before the wedding. The rest of the photo nicely frames the sharp focus on the bride’s face reflected in the mirror, which is more soft focus. Several nice layers fill the frame.
In the toasting category, Erin and Patrick laughing placed 17th.
The results for the sought after Wedding Photojournalism Association for the Fall 2006 contest are in. This image placed in the top 20 of the Emotion category. Just goes to show that goofing around during the formals can be a good thing! View contest by going to the Wedding Photojournalist Association.
