Check out the feature on their blog and be sure to pick up a current copy of the magazine. They have plenty of wonderful ideas to plan your dream wedding!

We are always excited and honored when we win an award, especially when it is a Fearless Award!  One of our images was chosen to be recognized in Fearless Photographers most recent competition.  When you consider that out of the images entered into the contest by so many talented wedding photographers throughout the world, only about 5% are actually chosen, that is a true honor!  With that, this is one of our all-time favorites ... so funny :-)!

This took way too long to post but we couldn't pass up the opportunity to post this.  We were beyond excited to be approached by Phoneix Bride & Groom Magazine to photograph a fashion feature to be published in their Winter/Spring 2012 edition!  The concept was to have two models each dressed as brides in a single dress with the focus being on how four different hair and make-up concepts could transform the look of the dress.  The shoot took place in a suite at the lovely JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa.  We loved the idea and had a great time shooting with an amazing array of talented artists, models and friends!

Thank you to Publisher, Fran Samuel, Sales and Marketing Director, Jennifer Rabito, and Regional Account Executive, Kristen Butler, for trusting in our photographic vision.  It was such an honor to have this opportunity!

We had a couple of beautiful weddings featured in some recent magazines and wanted to share them!  The first was Susan and Jason's exotic Venecian-themed wedding at Villa Siena which was featured in Phoenix Bride & Groom Magazine.  The second was Leslie and Ben's elegant Sedona wedding at Tlaquepaque which was featured in Arizona Bride Magazine.  Thank you to our wonderful couples for sharing and to these great publications for featuring them!

We had joined Fearless Photographers just in time to enter their April 2012 competition ... literally on the last day of the contest.  The competition is stiff and the bar is set very high, so we were overwhelmed to have 3 of our images place on the first try.  We were so thrilled and honored!  There are no categories.  They simply choose what they consider the best of the entries.  Here are the images that placed.

It is always an honor to place in the WPJA quarterly competitions as I am competing against some of the best wedding photographers in the world!  This time though it was humbling for me.  I garnered my very first 1st PLACE AWARD this time and was so elated!!  The winning image placed 1st in the SILHOUETTES AND SHADOWS category and was taken at Brooke and Ryan's wedding this past April at Arcosanti in Arizona.  I also won 14th PLACE in the same category for an image I took at Theresa and Chris's wedding at V. Sattui Winery in Napa, CA back in May of this year.

I am always honored to place in the ISPWP competitions!  I placed 9th in the EMOTIONAL IMPACT Category in the ISPWP Summer 2011 Contest with a beautiful moment captured at Neha and Tunde's wedding of Tunde and his brother emotionally hugging after a toast.

We are a little behind on our studio news, so we are going to do a few postings to catch everyone up :-).  First up, the Wedding Chronicle featured two of our wedding in their January/February 2011 Issue.  As always we are so grateful to have been thought of :-).  Kelcey and Tim's beautiful wedding at McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale was featured along with Kristy and Carl's exotic destination wedding in sunny Puerto Penasco, Mexico!

I am once again honored to win awards in the prestigious Wedding Photojournalist Association's (WPJA) quartly contest.  I was really excited this time because three of my photographs placed, all in the top 5!!  I won 3rd place in "Humor" for a photo taken at Angela and Chris' wedding and 4th place in "Cake Cutting" and 5th place in "Kids (Being Kids)", both from Megan and Jeff's wedding.  There were 24,112 entries from around the world in this quarter and from that, 360 finalists were chosen.  That really is an honor.  As always, thank you to my couples for trusting in my vision and allowing me to make these award winning images :-)!

We were extremely honored, not to mention excited, to have our image on the cover of the July/August issue of the Wedding Chronicle!!  The image was taken at Armanda and Jonathan's wedding in Monument Valley last December and their wedding was also featured inside the magazine.  You can pick up a copy at any AJ's store in Phoenix!

We have been fortunate this year to have quite a few publications in several magazines and we are really excited about them!!  Aside from the ones shown here, one of our images made the cover of the July/August issue of the Wedding Chronicle.  We were blown away when we got the news from the editor and we will definitely be posting that when we receive a copy!

 

Arizona Weddings Magazine featured Armanda and Jon's wedding in Monument Valley and they used another image from their wedding as a full page spread to introduce their "Northern Arizona" section.

Arizona Bride Magazine featured ... you guessed it ... Armanda and Jon's wedding in Monument Valley in their Fall/Winter 2009 issue.

And finally, the most important one to Kevin and I ... Phoenix Bride & Groom Magazine featured our wedding in Hawaii in their Summer/Fall 2009 issue.  We are extremely excited to have our wedding published and again we have to thank our AMAZING photographer, Daniela Hood, www.danielahood.com , for doing such a wonderful job!!  We (Sierra Blanco) also have quite a few miscellaneous publications throughout the magazine as well.  Side note: I love the magazine's choice of title for our wedding story - "Images of Love" :-)!
