Award Winning Images!
Now and then we make some time to enter images into photography contests. I’m not a big contest enterer but I seem to be doing it more this year than I used to. So in going with my new trend I entered images in the last two WPJA contests.
Thousands of entries are sent in so it was fun to see I actually managed to place in each contest!.
This image won in the “weather” category. This was a recent wedding at the Rockhouse Hotel in Jamaica. It decided to pour down rain the day of the wedding but the bride and groom were determined to not miss out on getting great images from their wedding day after having gone to the trouble of flying me down there. We headed into the rain armed with nothing but an umbrella and created some incredible art for them to remember their day by. We were all soaked by the time we finished, but it was warm out and a lot of fun.
This photo of my bride Lauren getting into her limo at the L’auberge Del Mar Hotel was a quick grab shot. I had just a split second as this was not posed in any way. I remember her saying she didn’t particularly love her shoes but they were perfect for a wedding on the grass like she had. Spiked heels sinking into grass or dirt is definitely an issue at weddings for all women so I think she was very smart to plan for it!
