WPJA 2009 Q1

I entered a couple of images into the WPJA’s first quarter competition, and was SO happy to see this photograph of Sara and Itan receive mention in the Portraits category!

Here’s what the judges had to say:

“There were perhaps other more “creative” photos than this one that showed how much the photographer was thinking and working it but as far as a portrait that the subjects will cherish and love, it doesn’t get any better than this. It is a very simple and clean photo and the subjects look completely comfortable and their embrace is sincere. Wonderful light and a great job scouting this location make this a photo that is really worthy of the large check I am sure they had to make out for “wedding photography”! In this business, I’m sure it is great to win awards from your peers, but when it comes right down to it, your clients are the ones who really matter and here you have done them a great service. Excellent work!”


Sara and Itan, we’ll be sending you a print of this photograph, so keep a lookout for a package in the mail!

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!…this picture, and ya’ll, are AMAZING!!! i love the judges’ comments…you guys are famous! (and we’re famous by default!)

  2. I have never been more pleased with the photography industry ! As mother of Sara, I have to say that no matter what Sara told me about the quality of the photographers she and Itan hired, she could never say enough. I also have to say that you had some good “material” as well. Spoken like a true mama. I am quite certain though that you know what I mean!
