Junebug Best of the Best 2015 winner & Artist of the year & more

Wedding 2015

I am SOOO excited to finally be able to announce that I have won not one but TWO images in the Junebug Best of the Best 2015 competition.  This is the biggest competition we wedding photographers can submit to.  Photographers from all over the world can submit up to 20 photos to be selected as a winner and the poor judges are tasked with narrowing that down to only 50 winning images.  It’s a huge honor.  The photographers can’t see who submitted the images, so the possibility of getting more than one in there is there, although rare.  So, for me to have two of my images picked is even beyond anything I ever imagined.  I have only won one other time, ever and I thought that was a fluke.  I am SO honored to be in this selection with these other amazing photographers from around the world.   I’m pretty much speechless!  Here are the winning images, which both happen to be taken at Bessie’s Barn in 2 different weddings.

Please check out Junebug’s website to view them there as well as all of the other amazing winners!
