We placed 15th in the world in the latest ISPWP Spring 2012 Contest, and one of our images placed First! The ISPWP, or International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers, is an organization of the best wedding photographers in the world. To be a member, a photographer must pass a rigorous application process which includes peer review and approval. Only the best wedding photographers are approved. Every Quarter the ISPWP holds a contest in which they pick the top 20 photos in 20 categories, from thousands of photos from around the world. Each photographer may submit only 25 photos per Quarter.

To place 15th in the world is quite an accomplishment. Here are the winning photos:
