When I first started shooting weddings I worked on a freelance basis with a company called Bella Pictures. Bella shoots weddings all over the country and it was a really great opportunity for me to get experience. Now, when I'm not booked through my own business I still shoot for Bella Pictures.

Recently Bella Pictures hosted a contest for the best images from 2005-2006. I'm pleased to say that from over 1500 entrants, 4 of my images were honored with Awards of Excellence.


Here they are:
Portrait - Bride and Groom












Preparation - Non-Portrait























Details
















Scene Setters - Pictorial
