Last year Rangefinder Magazine did a feature on the top 30 rising stars in the wedding industry. I remember looking through the magazine, being in awe of the photographers who were selected. The 30 Rising Stars feature is an international award given to select photographers from around the globe who have been in the industry for under 5 years, nominated by top industry leaders and top editors. I got a crazy e-mail a few months back saying that I had been one of 150 nominated to potentially be selected for this years issue. It came out of left field, I still have no idea who nominated me but thank you!! So nervously and slowly I put together a small selection of my work to submit. Fast forward to a couple weeks ago as I’m walking through the Denver airport connecting to a flight for Ohio when I receive the e-mail that I had been selected as one of this years TOP 30!!! In the world! I kept a cheesy grin on my face for the next 30 minutes.
Thank you to all the couples and wonderful humans who’ve trusted and put their faith and creative trust in me over these past 2 years.
This is just the beginning.
You can read the article on my on page 71 of this months issue, here’s a link to the digital version.
Here’s the link to my gallery I submitted, located here, on Rangefinder’s Website.
Big shout out to all of my buds who also made it into this amazing group… Andria, Pat, Logan, Katie, Emma, Ryan and Ariel. So rad to have such talented friends.
In other excited news, I have 12 pages of my work featured in the new book from Gestalten, Just Married. A selection of awesome weddings curated by celebrity stylist Fiona Leahy. The book is available for purchase on their website.
I also had the honor of writing an article for The Define School earlier this month speaking on some topics very near and dear to my heart. The article was then picked up and featured on FStoppers.com
