The Wedding Publicist recently held a contest and picked my Image of Alex and Robert for the image of the year. The Image had previously been chosen as November 2009’s “Stellar Image of the Month”. All the images from the year were put together and the Judges Harmony Walton, Mike Colon, and Robert Evans chose my image to be the “Stellar Image of the Year”

I’m honored to have been chosen and I look forward to being apart of the judging process next year. Go here for info on getting your image selected next year!

Here’s what the judges had to say about the image.

I like this image because it reminds me of when photographers used to shoot film. It speaks to the realness, and the moments of an actual wedding. I appreciate the photographers raw talent that captured something special on the fly, and didn’t alter it too much in photoshop. It’s real and timeless, not your typical “bride and groom crossing the street” either…. – Harmony Walton

I liked this image because it felt “real”. I love the motion, and urban setting… and yet it looks like it could be anywhere, even a 3rd world country! I also liked the contrast of the bride’s gown with the street.. – Mike Colon

I loved Samuel’s image plain and simple because it is real. This image can stand the test of time. Beautiful use of motion blur to create a sense it could be anywhere in the world, and yet the couple looks flawless through it all.. – Robert Evans
