It is a rare Autumn day that I can take a day off from shooting and editing to reflect upon my personal progress as a wedding & portrait photographer based in Prague.
Though I used to relish the idea of entering a wedding photography contests - in late summer of 2018 after much prodding from my own staff - I relented.
The Wedding Photojournalist Association was an obvious choice as they set the bar very high for both members as well as recognizing excellence amongst its rank. I truly did smile as I recognized many of it's members - who like myself left photojournalism for the wonderful story telling ability that is present in modern wedding photography. Truth be told, hiring a former photojournalist (if you can afford them) as your wedding photographer - is really the best way to go. So many of the giants of todays wedding photography were formerly successful photojournalists.
Though I have only just started to submit images (summer of 2018) I am pretty pleased with the recognition so far. I do hope to add many more such wonderful moments captured on the behalf of couples who entrust in me to tell their stories.
