"A Father's Love" Wins International Awards!

 

I had the great honor of documenting Niki & Chris’s wedding day, September 22, 2012 at The Inn at Erlowest.  Niki and her Dad, Bud, are very close.  Bud showed his beautiful vulnerability and love for this daughter is this image.  I submitted this image to theWedding Photojournalist Association international competition it placed 2nd the emotion category!    This image also took 3rd place in WPPI’s First Half Online competition, category: wedding photojournalism.  

It’s these moments that fuel me as an artist.  

100% trust and access allowed me to document this moment, thank you Niki and Chris, and of course Bud!
