You may now refer to us as “Those International Award Winning Photographers Alex Russel and Marnie Sohn.” 😉
It’s true! This year we entered our first international photography competition. We chose the annual competition held by the organization Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI.) We figured, why not set the bar high, and choose one of the biggest, toughest, best-known competitions for our first?
We flew to Las Vegas to watch the judging and attend the convention. The competition sees over 3000 entries in 19 categories. The judging takes place in eight rooms, judged by eight panels of seven judges each, and takes a full two days to complete. We spent those two days moving from room to room, watching the judging, and were simply blown away by the quality of the entries. There are so many photographers out there making truly outstanding images. Which is why we’re extra thrilled to be able to announce:
We won a silver award!
We feel so honored to have our photo recognized among these other images – the best of the best of what the industry has to offer.
They gave us this fancy badge for our website! Aren’t they nice?
