PUBLISHED! Photo District News Magazine Top Knots 2012 Winner!

Each year Photo District News Magazine (PDN) holds a contest called Top Knots:  The New School of Wedding Photography.  Dedicated to honoring the most creative, fresh wedding photographs, PDN is a New York based award-winning magazine; required reading for professional photographers.  PDN is akin to what Vogue is to fashionistas.  To say that winning an award in Top Knots is an honor is a bit of an understatement.  It's more like having Martha Stewart take your face in her well-moisturized hands, look deeply into your eyes and say, "You're a good thing."  

Although Martha did not personally touch my face (Not to fret, we're both young and I'm confident that it will happen one day in our lives), I feel that one of her colleagues, in a sense, did.  Joanna Dufour, Senior Photo Editor at Martha Stewart Weddings was one of the four industry powerhouse judges, as well as Jacqueline Tobin, executive editor of Rangefinder magazine and former deputy editor of PDN, Rebecca Crumley, Weddings Photo Director at The Knot, and Jennifer Haskett, art director and contributing editor of Weddingbells magazine.  I cannot thank these wonderfully talented, discerning women enough.  

I am elated to have my image from Kristin and Chad's wedding published in the Details & Interiors category of the Top Knots contest.  You can scurry to your nearest Barnes and Noble for your copy, as well as enjoy the online gallery of winners HERE.  Kristin and Chad, you are now a part of photo industry history! 

Good gracious.  Look at this lineup of judges.  I would love to have lunch with any of them.  I imagine them dining on dainty ladies' salads, and me with my Belgian waffle.  As an appetizer.

Here are Kristin and Chad in full-sized splendor...
