Go ahead, enter “Award Winning Wedding Photographer” into a google search and see how many photographers show up in the results. The answer is probably close to all of them. That said, it still feels pretty good when we receive awards for some of our favorite images taken at client weddings!

First up, an image of Jen and her niece from their Urban Studio wedding back in March!

So then I kept looking and sure enough, Danielle and Brennan’s recent Cabo destination wedding popped up in the reception category!

An image from Michele and Randy’s rainy wedding placed in the Other Vendors category as well.

And so did the silk acrobat from Scott and Shaun’s Edison Ballroom wedding! I guess Inside Weddings isn’t the only authority that loves their elaborate wedding!

The best part of all this? I kind of forget I was even a member of the AGWPJA! Somewhere along the line I stopped receiving their emails and last quarter they started appearing in my inbox again. Lo and behold, I was a day away from their contest deadline so I just pulled some images from the archives and entered on a whim. And I think next screenshot shows that I placed 4th overall in an organization with hundreds of members all over the world. And you’ll note, the winners were from ALL over the world! As a Portland wedding photographer I’m quite pleased to place among such worldwide talent!
