WPPI 2015 – Wedding Filmmaking Competition Winners
Imagine Photo Cinema wins Silver for the second year in a row!
WPPI – Wedding, & Portrait Photography Internal held their annual conference and expo in Las Vegas, Nevada February 27th, to March 6th. Each year, nearly 13,000 professional and aspiring photographers and filmmakers attend WPPI to learn new techniques from industry leaders, build new relationships to grow their business, experience new products and solutions from major manufacturers to improve their productivity, and enjoy the many attractions in Las Vegas. WPPI is a week-long event combining educational seminars with a major industry trade show and networking events, all designed around learning the latest techniques, building new relationships and growing a business in a friendly, fun environment – all at one time, in one place.
Along with attending insightful workshops hosted by the best in the industry WPPI also offers a Photo and Film competition to recognize its best. Last year we scored Siver (marks of 80+) in both the Wedding and Commercial category (click the links to watch the entries). This year we repeated the award in the wedding category.
We pride ourselves in storytelling. A great story is about the couple; not the flashy reception hall or exotic location shoot. That’s what I hoped the judges would see. When competing with film makers from around the world who have amazing locations for backdrops and wedding budgets close to the price of a house, it’s seemed impossible to score with a wedding shot at Wild Goose and the Slovak Legion. Yet, we did. Winning this award re-enforces the idea that story should come first. Big thanks go out to Brittany & John for being themselves; not only on their wedding day but on their engagement shoot as well. Without them none of this would be possible. Now it’s time to move on and take what we’ve learned to make 2015 even better!
