2011 Awards

San Francisco, California

It is always so inspiring at the beginning of a new year to check out all the “best of” wedding photography lists and year-end contest results. Wedding photographers today work so hard, and are constantly pushing the envelope, to create new spins and fresh takes on traditional wedding photos. It’s a challenge that seems almost impossible in an era of such insanely talented photographers, yet we are all amped to keep trying with every wedding we shoot. We are extremely proud and honored to have been included in two “best of” lists for 2011, and to have picked up a few awards in the WPJA, ISPWP, and Fearless Photographers recent contests.

Ben, Erin and Mauricio all had a photo place on Junebug Weddings’ Best of the Best 2011. With 5,000 entries and only 50 photos chosen as the “best wedding photos of the year,” we feel extremely lucky to have been chosen for such a prestigious, competitive list. Ben also made Junebug’s 2010 and 2008 list with winning photos, and Ben and Erin both made the 2009 list.

Ben and Erin also made it onto the ProDPI Top 10 Fearless Photographers list for 2011. The Top 10 list comprises photographers from all over the world who have won the most awards for the year through the Fearless Photographers community. The photos shown here are their winning photos for the last round of 2011.

Ben picked up a 2nd place award in the Wedding Photojournalist Association’s 3rd Quarter contest for a photo from Yael and Or’s wedding reception in Israel this summer.

And lastly, Erin won six awards in the International Society of Professional Wedding Photographers Fall 2011 contest.

Thank you so much to all our awesome couples for being extraordinarily unique, dynamic and fun, and always willing to step outside the box with us. You are the reason we love what we do, and why we will continue to work hard to push the envelope for you.
