WPJA Awards

The Wedding Photojournalist Association announced their contest winners for the 2008 Quarter 3 competition, and I was fortunate enough to have two pictures recognized. I won a 2nd place award in the "Emotion" category and a 9th place award in the "Dancing" category. The WPJA is an international organization made up of photographers located in the United States, England, France, Singapore, Italy and many other countries.

Of course, if it wasn't for my wonderful clients who trust me to document their wedding and be a part of one of the most significant days of their lives, these pictures wouldn't exist.

The first picture of bridesmaids watching a photo slideshow is from Adrienne and Brandon's wedding in September. The second is Melissa and Chris sharing a moment at the end of a long and exciting day.

Jean-Christian Bourcart

I came across some wedding photos from the early career of Jean-Christian Bourcart. Apparently his first job was wedding photographer. He put together a handful of these images beginning in 1980 in a collection called The Most Beautiful Day.

He's created some wonderfully odd wedding pictures.
