This image captured at the Montebello Country Club was entered in the 2014 Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) 16x20 Print, Album, and Filmmaking Annual Competition and received a Silver Award with a score of 81.
The photograph was entered in the Bridal Party / Family & Friends category. Although I can always wish for a higher score, I felt that a score of 81 was quite respectable. Based on secondhand information, some of the judges felt that the image was slightly disturbing. And although I can appreciate that perspective from someone without a sense of humor, other judges chimed in to point out that it was intentionally quirky—as was my intent.
