Here we go again...
Today I am grateful of receiveing one more Fearless Award from collection 44, one (if not the only) of the hardest recongnition in wedding photography to earn. It did not came easily, as there has been some lessons that I had to struggle with, but at the end, the trouble is what makes victory so sweet, thank you to the three judges from whom I receive the award Andrea Corsi (Italy) , Ken Pak (USA) and Lina Orsino-Allen (UK), to my wife Patricia Mendez, who has always been there kicking my butt and putting me into place everytime I want to take a shortcut, and beware, I threaten to be back with more of these, I don't know how long it will take me, but I will do it..!!
There has been a couple of years now since I started following the directory with most wedding photographer members, in here you will find a broad collection of unique, interesting, funny and mind-blowing images from weddings around the world.
I applied to be a member a year ago, and during the various collection I send my best images, to be considered for an award, finally, collection 33rd was the charm, and today am very proud to share with all my first (and hopefully not my last) Fearless Award (YAAAAAY!!!)
I am always trying to send images that the curators will find perfect to publish as Photo of the Day , something that I already accomplished once and felt great too, but I wanted to make a blog post for my first award and not just for being published.
Did I mention that is not that easy to get one of this "Fearless Awards"? seriously I am competing against all of the best wedding photographers from around the world, and for collection 33rd they only gave 123 awards from thousands and thousands of images sent for consideration, so yes, today I feel proud and rest assure that I will be pushing myself harder to be a better photographer day by day, always staying humble and grateful for being blessed with couples, friends and family that help me to keep doing what I love.
