AAAHHHH! I won an award!
I won an award! I won an Accolade of Excellence in the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International 8x10 print competition for 2007! "Ain't Love a Kick?" is the winning photo! This photo was taken at Ryan & Amy Stillwaters wedding. (thanks for being such great subjects guys!) Floral credit goes to Tulip Floral Studio, and make-up credit goes to Elisha Reynoso.
