I am happy to share that I was recently awarded recognition as one of the best wedding photographers in Phoenix, Arizona by WeddingRule.com for 2021. It is an honor to be in great company on a list with many other wedding photographers I respect in Arizona.
Additionally, I am an award-winning member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association and Fearless Photographers, two international photography organizations recognizing the top wedding photographers in the world.
In 2020 I was recognized among the top 150 wedding photographers in the world for the Wedding Photojournalists Association. Both The Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) and Fearless Photographers are organizations I am proud to be a member of because their philosophies so deeply correspond to how I approach wedding photography.
WPJA Mission statement:
“Two people making a commitment of marriage want to remember the day for the rest of their lives. Shouldn’t the wedding photography that commemorates their celebration reflect the personal moments and honest emotions they will remember?”
“A love for authenticity in wedding photography — finding art in the actualities of a marriage celebration — led to the founding of the Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) in 2002. Out of respect for our clients, the wedding photographers and photojournalists accepted for WPJA membership have a demonstrated talent for candid originality and a dedication to the documentary approach in wedding photography. To maintain their standing in the WPJA, member photographers must adhere to the highest professional and ethical standards.”
Fearless Photographers mission statement:
“We see the art of photography as more than capturing a unique and heartfelt moment in time. Photography affects how we remember, captures how we and others experience each other, and makes a record for our own family and human history.”
“As part of our company’s philosophy, Fearless Photographers encourages all members to make positive social change in our communities, to embody inclusive and equitable client service, and to practice environmental responsibility in caring for our planet. “
“Our company encourages environmental responsibility. Our company strives to be anti-racist. Our company strives for social justice throughout our business. Our company works to provide equitable access and opportunity. Our company celebrates diversity and inclusivity.”
