Proud member of WPJA

I have some good news, great in fact… I am honored to announce that I am now a proud member of the WPJA– Wedding Photojournalist association!  I have been in awe at the work and standards of these photographers for years and now I have been accepted myself. Yey! The WPJA is a organization that accepts less than 5% of it’s applicants and I am chuffed to be a part of such an elite community of wedding photojournalists around the world.

Quotes from the WPJA website:

“Since 2002 the WPJA has been the number one trusted source for the best wedding photojournalists in the world. Recognized for excellence by leading wedding publications including BRIDES magazine, the WPJA is an international network of vigorously vetted professional photographers whose work is regularly judged by award-winning photojournalists (including many Pulitzer Prize-winners) and news photo editors.”

“To us capturing honest moments matters. So do integrity, trust and creativity. Our mission is to guarantee consumers the most extensive and exclusive network of award-winning wedding photographers available anywhere. To achieve our mission, the WPJA only accepts into membership gifted, honest wedding photojournalists who work tirelessly to deliver excellent photography to their clients.”

“The Wedding Photojournalist Association puts the world’s best wedding photography at your fingertips.”

I cant wait for 2011’s wedding season to start! Thank you to all my friends, family and my wonderful husband for the support and hundreds of photo critiques over the years!
