Over the past few years we have been entering the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI)
print competitions. When you submit an image for the competition you are given a score and feed back from the judges on how to improve your images. We have loved getting our images back and seeing how we can improve our work to better serve our couples. In past years we have scored high enough on several image to earn several Accolades of Excellence. Getting those Accolades has been very honoring and pushed us strive to keep our scores up.
This past week we received word about the latest print competition results and we beyond thrilled to find out that one of our images scored high enough to earn the second place award in the composite category! It was a huge shock and honor to have an image score this high! We are beyond thrilled and so incredibly humbled by this award and cannot believe we earned this honor.
Here is look at our winning image. We cannot thank Jenn and Ben enough for allowing us to capture their beautiful wedding at Spring Creek Ranch! Without them being so open to our vision we would not have won this award. This image was taken just moments before a huge storm hit and we loved the mystery that the incoming ominous clouds add to this image. We love when our couples trust us and allow us to create beautiful work for them! We owe a huge thank you to all our couples for trusting us with their day and for allowing us to share in your joy and celebration! Also a huge thank you to WPPI for the huge honor you have given our studio with this award!
(For photographers we shot this using the Brenizer Method. The final image is 23,000 pixels x 8,000 pixels and the original 16 images were shot on a D800 at 200mm f2.8. That is equivalent to using a 70mm 0.98 lens)
