award of excellence wppi international print competition


Wesley had two images in the WPPI First Half of 2013 international print competition score above 80 out of 100 points, which earned him an award of excellence. The first was an 81.3 in the photojournalism category from Angie & Larry's beautiful Carillon Weddings during Angie's dance with her father. The second image which scored an 83 in the Landscape category, was a shot he took when we were in the Smokey Mountains during Spring Break this year. He saw this horse grazing in Cades Cove, so he pulled the car over and took the shot while a late Spring snow was falling on the mountain in the background

emerge contest winner


Wesley entered the Emerge photo competition for wedding photographers recently in May 2010. This was an international competition created to bring up and coming mostly unnoticed talent into the spotlight to be recognized in the international wedding industry. It was sponsored and judged by some of the leading wedding industry professionals such as Rebecca Crumley from The Knot Magazine, and world-renowned wedding photographer Joe Buissink. There were 5 categories to enter, and 3 winners were chosen from each category for a total of 15 winners out of well over 1000 entries. We were quite honored to get the notification that Wesley finished 2nd place in the "details" category with 10 images he took at Ginny & Brad's Carillon wedding in January of 2010. He won some great new photography toys and equipment, as well as being profiled in the international photography magazine "Rangefinder" in an upcoming issue. We are very proud of him! We are also thankful to Carillon Weddings and Christina at Nouveau for providing those amazing details!
