First Place in WPJA Winter Competition

This image from Sandi & Roger's wedding won first place in the Action category of the WPJA first quarter of 2008 photo contest.

The little girl is the groom's granddaughter, the man who is about to be hit by the snowball is the groom's brother. He looks like an innocent victim in this picture but I can tell you that he wasn't altogether innocent. He had thrown a few snowballs himself at this point. (If you click he link to the preview you will see him throwing one.)

Snow is unusual in Atlanta so I considered myself fortunate to have snow on a wedding day. It made for a beautiful setting that I thought really punctuated such a unique wedding ceremony.

Just in case you are wondering - we have not started applying cheesy Photoshop effects to our pictures. I called the church to see if they had any rules for photographers. I spoke with Diane, the church's wedding coordinator. She gave me the guidelines then told me about this window where the organ used to be and that we were free to shoot from there if we wanted. There is no glass in the window, but there is decorative ironwork. The white fuzz you see is out of focus iron that Bene' was shooting through.
