WOO HOO!! I was accepted into WPJA!!

I am so exited! Last week I was accepted into the Wedding Photojouranlistic Association aka WPJA. I applied the week before and was nervous, they needed to review my portfolio (website) and because they get so many applications I knew it would take a while. Have I ever mentioned I hate waiting, especially when they only reply to those that get accepted ( due to high application volumes) I could have been waiting for months without a word. Imagine how excited I was when I received a letter informing me I had been accepted.

Never heard of WPJA? Check them out their website to find out more.

Here is a little blurb I pulled from their website:

The Wedding Photojournalistic Association

“Leading the way in Wedding Photojournalism, WPJA represents the most discriminating talent around the world technically, creatively and visually. Qualified members hold industry-leading standards, skills and business integrity.”

It’s been a week and I’m still excited! I think mostly I am excited because I have never really “classified” my work into a category. I just love photography and catching moments. As an example this following image. It was taken of complete strangers in New York:

A moment shared

This one I am very proud of. It has received an award and was purcahsed by the Triton Museum in Santa Clara! It was photographed on film, which I them developed myself and printed in a wet darkroom on fiber paper!!

And of course since it is all about Wedding Photojournalism. Here are a couple of my favorites from past weddings:

and one of my favorite things at weddings the kids! they are so carefree and always full of emotion.
