The results from the ISPWP ( International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers ) Winter 2009 contest were recently released, and I’m pleased to say that 3 of my photos placed in the competition.

This 2nd place photo was taken at the end of a small and charming island themed backyard wedding ceremony and reception that ended up a little wet and wild.

Cassie and Ben’s platinum reception at the Pelican Hill Resort in Newport Coast started in the late afternoon. After the sun had long set, the Italian style rotunda and the event lawn provide and elegant background for a late evening stroll.

Last year I had the pleasure of 2nd shooting for Sam Hassas. This photo was taken while we split duties covering the garter toss. The young lad leaped across the way just in time to grab the garter from the less fleet footing single men.
