I recently realized the value & importance of submitting my work for photography contests and submitting my work to get featured in various publications, specifically to wedding photography organizations & wedding blogs. I’m so excited that my hard work is paying off. It takes a lot of time to prepare everything for submissions & for contests, & its precious valuable time that I don’t really have with my super busy life as a photographer. On the other hand, I also realize that its so important to make time for these kind of things because of the recognition I get. I realize, the more I get featured in different places, the more it helps me with promoting myself & I’m really loving the feedback I’m getting from some of my favorite wedding blogs where I got featured.
I’m happy to say that I’m super excited to have one of my photos win a FEARLESS PHOTOGRAPHER AWARD. Fearless photographers is an organization of some of the most bold & the most creative wedding photographers & its not easy to win an award since there are quite a few judges & all of them have to agree that a photographer deserves the recognition for a particular image. Its about being creative & being bold to photograph in the most unique ways to stand out from others. The image you see above was a shot of the bouquet toss against the beautiful sunset. I love being creative and now I’m taking the time to make this part of my workflow to make time to submit my work for contests & publications to be recognized as a award wining photographer.
