Kevin Beasley Photographer » A Louisiana Based Photojournalist

I can’t believe it !

Quarterly I submit work to an international contest for Wedding Photojournalism. With in the contest there are many journalistic categories in which to enter. One of the entries I submitted for the category, “DETAILS” won first place! The judges were looking for, “Details that had to be found”. It is always encouraging when your industry recognizes your efforts.

The winning image was from Lindsey Groll and Stan Martin’s wedding ( West Monroe). Just before the ceremony (there was still a line of guests waiting to be seated) I found Lindsey’s dad pacing and visiting guests. I waited in the vestibule while he visited. Soon after I found an opportunity with his hand open enough to get the shot.
