Wedding Photojournalist Association

WPJA Award winning image.

Wow, just got the news. I feel so honored to have one of my images chosen in the 4th Quarter WPJA photo contest. This was an image that I grabbed while one of my clients was putting on her pearls. I was watching carefully during the preparation and I remember that I sensed something special. I had my camera to my eye. The light in the room was quite low and I was shooting without a flash at a really slow shutter speed. My anticipation payed off. Click. Bingo! I saw the moment in somewhat disbelief and wondered if I actually caught it. As usual, I was too busy at the moment to view it. Besides, if I’m staring down at my preview screen, I’m missing what is happening in the present. Later when I was going through the evening of images, there it was. phew! I love this image.

Thanks WPJA! Thanks Barbara!
