WPPI 2013 :: Awards Night and Acceptance Speech

Hello from Las Vegas,

Anthony and I are so happy to be sharing this exciting news with our friends and clients. Those close to us know we are soft-spoken when it comes to our personal and business lives. (Haha, which means our Facebook pages are usually pretty boring 😀 ) However, we feel that it’s important to acknowledge everyone who has graciously touched us in our photography journey.

Every year, Anthony and I join 20,000+ other photographers from all over the world for  the world’s largest wedding and portrait photography convention (WPPI) for one week of seminars and competitions at the MGM Grand, Las Vegas. We make it our personal goal every year to attend WPPI to be inspired by, and rekindle friendships with, our fellow photographers. (Plus, there are lots of new camera toys to try and freebies offered by our vendors, not to mention the epic after-parties!)

To our surprise, on March 13, 2013 we were honoured by the highest of WPPI Awards. We were recognized for 4 awards including two 1st place awards in the Wedding Album and Engagement Album categories. We also took home two 3rd place awards in the Engagement and Informal categories.  Anthony and I had the chance to share two unexpected moments at the podium and needless to say, we were humbled beyond words.


Here is the raw audio footage from our acceptance speech with a full slide-show of our 1st Place Engagement and 1st Place Wedding Albums. Special shout-out to Yao Zeng for capturing these moments of us on stage.

First, we want to say a BIG THANK YOU, to all of our clients; if it weren’t for you guys, we wouldn’t be here. Thank you for your dedication and for trusting our crazy vision. Big group hug. xoxo

We also want to thank Maureen, who has been our marketing ninja from the very start. Maureen, you have been our right and left-hand when it comes to our writing and getting us out there. Thanks for making us sound much better than what we are in person. LOL, English is not our first language. You are the best and words can’t thank you enough.

Photography is more than just business or art . It’s our lifestyle, our passion, and a way for Anthony and I to share our stories. We’re very blessed to be able to travel and connect with people from all different walks of life.

Thank you all for this humbling experience, which we hold dear to our hearts.

Cheers!

Love. You. Always.

– Rina + Anthony
