Awards of Excellence :: 2012 WPPI

After missing out on WPPI last year because we were in the Dominican shooting Lucy + Jimmy’s wedding, we were fortunate to attend this year between weddings (Costa Rica to Canmore via Las Vegas!) & had an awesome time catching up with fellow photographers, meeting the awesome girls at JuneBug & the cool people behind Rangefinder.  We had to leave WPPI early on the last day though to catch a flight to Calgary.

Nothing’s good about sitting in an airport waiting to board your plane.  And then, a text comes through – 3rd place award in the Engagement Album category at WPPI!!!  Woot!!! And we missed it… again 🙁  If we had the choice between attending the awards & flying out to prep for Erika + Chris’ gorgeous Canmore wedding, we’d still choose to be in the airport 🙂  Especially as Carey Nash & Kelly Redinger represented E-town by cheering for us when our studio name was announced 🙂  Huge thanks for texting us & cheering for us guys!!!

Sharon + Anthony’s engagement album is our 2nd consecutive album award (Pursuit, starring Lisa + Ken won in 2011) & 3rd, 3rd place award (in 2009 our Michelangelo inspired maternity print won) 🙂

What a lovely story!   I felt as though I knew the couple through the pages of your album.  The photography was beautiful, and it was tastefully presented.  Well Done!
Bambi Cantrell
Chairman
WPPI Album Competition

Of course, a huge thanks to Sharon + Anthony, the stars of the award winning album!  You guys rock!  Thanks for looking amazing despite the chilly weather, fire alarms and racing to catch the sunset 🙂

“Rina and Anthony are to be congratulated on their 3rd place Award of Excellence for the lovely album of Sharon and Anthony’s Engagement story. I was struck by the great variety of scene, colour and movement. Yet the obvious love that this couple share is such a beautiful, compelling part of the story. This shows the breadth of skill that these photographers have, but it also shows their own huge hearts. This will be an amazing treasure for the couple’s grandchildren to discover one day…they will be able to see how in love and happy their grandparents were way back then. A great body of work and something all young couples in Edmonton should do before they marry.”
Storey Wilkins
Judge
WPPI Album Competition

“I really enjoyed the fresh approach presented by Rina & Anthony Chan of Infused Studios.  With gorgeous images placed carefully into an engaging sequence, the viewer couldn’t help but to become part of this lovely couple’s story.  Our panel of international judges agreed unanimously that this book needed to be awarded for its beauty and creativity. Congratulations to Infused Studios! ”
