awards and publications
The foundation of my photography is not based on the awards that I win or the blogs and magazines that my photography is published in.
For myself personally, I don't hold a lot of importance on winning awards or being published. However, I do believe that entering competitions is a great way and avenue of pushing myself, growing my skills and perfecting my craft. I am super passionate about learning, growing and creating the best possible photography I can for the couples that choose me to photograph their big day. Entering competitions and being published helps me strive to create better photography, and now we are back after a few years away I plan on entering some more competitions to continue to push my development. Below are just some of the awards that I have won and also just a few of the magazines and blogs that I have been published in over the years.
