Peter and I are very proud to announce that we are the winners of The 2009 St. Louis Wedding Award for Photography.
What makes this award special and meaningful to us is that the contest was open to any photographer in the St. Louis area and was not restricted to a certain group of advertisers or members. It was a legitimate contest of skill and talent. The photos were judged by out of state wedding photographers, photography professors, professional artists and other working professionals. We had to submit 15 images (45 total) from three different weddings to show consistency in our body of work.
This is our first big award in photography. We owe a great deal of gratitude to our mentors, our fellow wedding vendors and our fabulous clients. Without your support and trust in us, we would have never have come as far as we have in the past seven years. We want to sincerely thank you from the bottom of hearts.
