"The envelope please...."

We are very excited to say that all four of our wedding album entries at PPA's International Print Judging went into the Loan Collection making us Diamond Level Photographers of the Year for PPA. Only 11 other photographers earned that honor this year. Crazy to think that weddings from little old Dayton, Ohio can compete with weddings from all over the world!

Mark also earned his Imaging Excellence Bar and Jennifer earned her Imaging Excellence Degree. A little birdie has also told us that we have an album(s) in the PPA's Top Ten Wedding Albums!? Nothing is official yet, but we'll let you know when we hear something. Keep your fingers crossed for us.

It seems silly, but the Top Ten is the honor that gets my heart racing the most. Many of the photographers that we idolize are in that Top Ten ranking and it is very humbling to be honored with your idols...we feel like Sally Fields, "You like me, you really really like me."

What amazes me most is the fact that we are the only photographers that have been in the Top Ten five times. I know its a combination of luck and hard work and when we step back to look at that accomplishment it doesn't even seem real to us. Now that we have tooted our own horns enough I'll try to redeem myself by leaving you with these thoughts...Muhammad Ali said, "If you can do it, it ain't bragging." :)
