Jim Garner Wins WPPI Album Competition!

I have to say I could not have been happier when one of my closest friends won WPPI's album competition.Jim Garner is a huge rising star in the photography industry. You should check out his website and his blog. He has started doing episodes of a show called "The Studio", It is SO funny! He also has an lens bag line called Boda Bag that is just better than any other product I've seen on the market. Check out Jim's work, I'm sure you will be blown away! Congrats to Jim and his wonderful wife Katarina!

Bambi Cantrell & Jim Garner

Wow! I have had one amazing year. Then to start off this wedding season by being invited to photograph a wedding with Bambi Cantrell was unbelievable! She was just named one of the top 10 photographers in the world. A well deserved honor! Bambi also invited Seattle photographer Jim Garner to shoot this wedding along side her. He is also an incredible talent and an all around brilliant photographer. I owe both of these photographers so much for sharing their talent and hearts with me.

Love to you both!
