First Place Winner!

I am happy to announce my first place finish in the "Emotional Impact" category of the ISPWP (International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers) Fall image contests. The winning image was taken at Crystal & Nick's wedding at Celebrations on the Bay in Pasadena Maryland.

The judge's comment reads: "Judges comments: Wow, look at her eyes. Serious emotion going on, and really well-framed to emphasize the moment."

I've placed in a lot of contests over the years, but it's always exciting to find out that I got top image in a category, especially when I only entered 2 images in the contest overall!

Check out the contest images here: Fall 2008 Contest
And the ISPWP site here: ISPWP

The ISPWP has a strict code of admittance for wedding photographers, as follows:

This is another image I shot a little while back but am just now getting to scanning / sharing. I headed up to Gettysburg for the day to meet my parents who took a mini-vacation there, and walked around the town a bit. We had taken one of those Civil War tours where we saw the battlefields and heard about the events that took place there, and then went to the historic part of town to walk around and look into some of the shops. This image is of some of the ornate doorways that I found there.
