This past week, Airika and I went to the annual WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) convention in Las Vegas with over 14,000 other photographers. One of our personal highlights each year is attending the live judging at the International Print Competition. For some reason, we find it endlessly fascinating to listen to the commentary of the judges as they critique and score each print one by one.  The highest scoring prints receive an Accolade of Excellence and are hung in a Gallery that is on display throughout the entire convention.

This year we entered 3 prints in the competition, and all 3 received Accolades of Excellence! We couldn’t be more thrilled, and we are excited to share them with you!
