Our Artistic Side

Kori and I recently became the first photographers in Arkansas to be inducted into the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photojournalist Association! It's a pretty selective group... To be inducted, you must first have what it takes to become a member of the parent organization, the WPJA, and then you must have at least one image place in an Artistic Guild contest to become a member. We'd never tried before, so we figured we'd give it a shot, and between the two of us, six of our images placed! It's an international competition, so we were really excited! and click on the gold medallions by our names.

Thanks to all of our brides for having such awesome weddings! You guys make it easy on us!

You truley deserve it and are wonderful at what you do! We love all of the photos that we have seen so far and are anxious to see the rest of them! Ray already mentioned that this one in particular he wants blown up and hung in our hall of "fame!"
