We’re absolutely thrilled and humbled this morning to announce over the weekend we were named ISPWP’s Photographer of the Quarter, based on the most recent contest of photographers around the world. There was some amazing work by some very talented photographers, many of whom we’re happy to call our friends, so the placement of our images among this work really meant a lot. And a huge, huge thank you to our recent clients this past fall and winter whose weddings and incredible emotional moments served as the best possible subjects for us. It is you, our clients, that have offered up a piece of yourselves–that moment–to us to document for you. And for that we are eternally grateful. Oh, and if you’re a client and have one of your wedding’s images shown here–congrats–you’re the recipients of a $50 Holland Photo Arts gift card for each of your images that appear!

Additionally, if you post a comment with your favorite image here, both you and the couple highlighted have a chance to win a $25 Amazon gift certificate! We’ll choose a winner randomly on Monday, May 19, so be sure to leave your email address when you make your comment. Thanks!

  12. Your photography is stunning. The first photo of Lora and Eric together is beyond lovely. We can’t wait until it’s our turn 😉

  13. The photo of Eric & Lora nose to nose really captured the intimate moment and their mutual love and respect for each other.

    The light through the dress/veil captured the beauty and play of light.
