Here's a quick description about the competition... "WedComp is a wedding photography competition open to any wedding photographer in the world with no restrictions as to style, approach or post production. The competition is judged by industry leading wedding photographers. The four categories are Getting Ready, Ceremony, Portrait and Reception" Isn't this AWESOME??!!! To think that its been a year since we've put up blog.johnlauren.com and now we're placed Top 25 in an International Wedding Competition???!!!...we're seriously speechless! At the same time, this milestone for us is also a testament to the awesome Brides and Grooms that believed in us and our work. Thank you! =) Just in case you were wondering, the winning image was from Linda+Dennis' wedding that we shot in August 2008. Thank you Linda and Dennis! Lastly, we have one more big announcement so keep an eye out for it...we're hoping to post it later this week! =)
I mentioned that it was for a speacial project that they were working on and well that project is now complete! =) What was the project?! See for yourself!...
The project was for a featured article on Red5studios in Event DV Magazine! Not sure what to expect or what photos they would use or even how they would use them, we took Loyd, Hazel, his crazy gear and shot away. And finally yesterday, I get word that the article is up and he's on the COVER!!!
When you get a chance, read the article and be inspired. Whether you're a photographer, a videographer, a musician...whatever it may be, it's always great to hear someone elses' success story. Don't forget to check out their blog too and leave them some comment love!
So I was thinking...will this give us more recogonition? mmm, maybe. Will more Brides be inclined to book us because of this?? mmm, probably not. BUT are we super stoked that one of our images is on the cover of a magazine PERIOD?! YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT!!! =)
CONGRATS RED5STUDIOS & THANKS FOR LETTING US BE A PART OF IT!!
