Judge – Tommy Tompkins

Here is a series that Tommy shot last summer.

This is difficult to choose a single image.  Out of all of the images that I shot last year, there is a “sequence” of images that I feel truly captivates the very essence of what we do as wedding photographers.  Although important, wedding photography isn’t always about perfect lighting and artistic processing.  To me, capturing a true moment is the most rewarding thing a wedding photographer can ever accomplish.
The following sequence was one of the most touching moments that I’ve ever captured. The brides mom was putting a bracelet on her that used to belong to grandma, grandma passed away, and mom was telling her how proud grandma was of her.  I had to wipe away my own tears after taking the shots.  To me, this is exactly what wedding photography is all about.

I love photography, my family, and owning my own business. I am going to mix them up and see what I get!
