I couldn’t believe it when I was contacted yesterday by Beth, the owner of Maine Wedding Company (currently under construction) and was told that Maleah and Vinnie’s John Peters Estate wedding had officially won the 2014 Maine Destination Wedding Photo and Video Contest (a now annual contest run by the Maine Wedding Company)! According to the website, the contest attracted more than 60 photographers and videographers, so competition was fierce. I happened to know all of the other exceptionally talented photographers who were selected as finalists and the weddings they had submitted were gorgeous, so I felt very honored that Maleah and Vinnie’s wedding was even considered amongst their stunning work.
Although there was a voting component of the contest, it had no bearing on the final results, which were made by a team of judges located outside of Maine.
You can view the judges’ comments here. Thank you, Maine Wedding Company, for this honor! And, thank you, Maleah and Vinnie, for giving me the honor of photographing your wedding. Not only were the details stunning, but you and your family were such a joy to capture and gave me so much to work with. I’ll never forget your wedding! Last, but not least, thanks are in order for my second shooter AND mom, Tammie, for helping to capture the wedding so well.
