Award-Winning Oaxaca Destination Photographer

September 17, 2019  •  Leave a Comment

It is my pleasure to share with you a couple of my newly award-winning photographs from my destination weddings this year! I am looking forward to adding to these as often as possible. 

Full disclosure: I used to believe that the work speaks for itself, that awards tell you about trends more than they do about the actual quality of the photographs, and I STILL DO believe this! BUT, the truth is, it is fun to win awards and be part of a community of photographers always pushing themselves to the next level of artistry and expertise. And I have to admit it is fun for my fans and clients to see my work be recognized as well. So just last month I decided to join a highly respected international photography community called Wedding Photojournalists Association, and have already begun having my work recognized and this has indeed helped push me in the direction I have wanted to commit myself more fully, which is towards photojournalism, or documentary wedding photography.

What this means for you, dear bride and groom, is going beyond beautiful portraits, detail shots, and "candids" more than I ever have before, to capture the "decisive moment" as much as possible. What is the difference between a candid and a "decisive moment" capture? A candid may show a great reaction on someone's face, for example, but nothing more, while a photograph of the "decisive moment" (coined by iconic French photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson) captures the emotional significance of the moment at the same time as it composes the elements in the frame in harmony with each other. Now you're saying, Whaaa??? In short, it means more POWERFUL images! Images that transcend "traditional" wedding photography and make you inhabit the day of your wedding even more deeply. To be sure, I have always striven for this, which you can see in hundreds of my photographs from past weddings right here on the blog. The difference now is simply that I am armed with more tools, more inspiration, and more determination to capture the "decisive moment" than ever before.
