WPPI 2011 Accolade of Excellence in Wedding Photojournalism

I’m thrilled that the following image earned an Accolade of Excellence in the Wedding Photojournalism category at the 2011 Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) 16×20 print competition.  This was my first year entering the print competition, which had over 2,000 entries from throughout the world that were judged by some of our industry’s leading wedding photographers sitting in panels.  I am grateful for the recognition and want to thank Anna and Chris for allowing me to share in their wedding and Pastor Warren for creating this special moment.
