I am so unbelievably proud of Michael. Just after we got back from Stephanie & Branden’s wedding, he received notification that he had won Best in Class for the Photojournalist Wedding category of the National convention of the Professional Photographers of Canada! Whew, that’s a mouthful, so I’ll sum it up by saying that he is awesome, award-winning and now nationally recognized. As anyone in the PPOC knows, it’s not an easy feat to get to that level.
Here is Michael’s award-winning image. Â This was taken during the Doli ceremony, which is a very emotional ceremony during East Indian weddings. Â This is when the bride leaves her parent’s house for the last time and goes with her new husband to become a part of his family. Â The image is entitled: Letting Go.
