As we get to the end of 2011, our best year yet, Marius and I would like to thank all our brides and grooms we’ve gotten to know over the past year. Your sharing our vision for what’s important in capturing your life’s best moments have allowed us to find those genuine real moments and gorgeous details throughout the year!
That leads me to the next bit of news: I’ve been accepted into the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA), an International, membership-based organization representing professional photographers skilled in the documentation of weddings and events in a candid, unobtrusive style. As a WPJA member, I join the ranks of some of the most talented wedding photojournalists in the world as judged by their technical, creative and visual aptitude.
Im both honored and elated to earn membership acceptance into the Wedding Photojournalist Association – as the only photographer in Southeast Texas to have my work alongside the WPJAs esteemed collection of professional wedding photojournalists is a monumental accomplishment. ð
I know Lindsey, right? ð
Next up, a note to say Marius is shooting full-time with us now – we’ve been shooting weddings all over Southeast Texas for 4 years now, it’s about time ð All of our brides and grooms have gotten to know Marius and the stellar work he produces day in and day out. If you’ve seen wedding photos here, about a third of them are his. I am still limiting my couples to one a month this year, Marius is doing about the same. What’s good is we’ll still be shooting for each other in each other’s weddings and we can’t wait to get started! ð
Last bit o’news: Marius and I have re-doubled our efforts to improve as photographers this year and in the coming year – it’s straightforward to spend $$$$ on new equipment, we’re doing that :), but we’re also investing $$$$ in training and education. For the past year (plus) we’ve been mentoring with the best wedding photographers in the world – associated with the Foundation Conference and Workshops, our mentors are recognized worldwide in their talent and ability. We understand the responsibility entailed in covering your day and the trust you’ve placed in us, we feel you deserve professional results. It will be interesting to see how much we improve this year ð
Below are a few more of our favorites from 2011, stay tuned as we finish strong this year with an engagement session or 2 and some beautiful fun weddings! ð
Oh, and Merry Christmas!
