Award winning Northern California wedding photography

Big Sur wedding ceremony

A windy wedding ceremony on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean provided this interesting ceremony photo.

I excited to announce that I had three winning photos in the most recent Wedding Photojournalist Association contest.

The image above, of a windy wedding ceremony in Big Sur, won second place in the “Weather” category.

Here are the judge’s comments:

The light and color enhanced the windy moment in this photo. Everything came together to give this frame energy and whimsy.

I really like all the faces and the four blonde heads…

One hardly knows where to begin or end with this whoosh of wind whipping hair to and fro, left to right and beyond to dreams and mirth turning all to a magical gust of wind – nature’s hairstylist at work.

Bride and Groom portrait, Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic.

This image won fourth place in the Bride and Groom Portrait category. It is a portrait of Daniela and Miguel at their wedding in Karlovy Vary, Czech Republic.

Judges comments:
I was drawn to the playfulness in this image. The groom has a great expression. Again, it’s a picture I want to linger on.

This final image won an award in the Kids portrait category.
