And the winner is….

So happy to share this with you:)

Yesterday the esteemed judges of Emerge 2010 announced the winners and guess what….Georgi Anastasov won first place in category The Kiss!!! Wow!!? I was thrilled!

Here’s what the sponsors & judges are saying:
  • “We couldn’t be more pleased with the caliber of wedding photography that we saw in this initial contest,” said J Sandifer, wedding development manager for LiveBooks. “This competition was created to recognize up-and-coming photographers and arm them with the tools and exposure they need to grow their businesses.”
  • “The competition was fierce,” said The Knot‘s Wedding Photo Editor Rebecca Crumley, who served as a judge of this year’s competition alongside world-renowned, celebrity wedding photographer Joe Buissink. “We were truly impressed with the caliber of wedding photography we saw and we hope emerging professionals will continue to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to showcase their work.”

Congrats also to my friend Laura Stone from Atlanta, GA! She placed first in The Venue category! I had the pleasure to work with her in NJ last fall.

Thank you Emerge! I’m truly blessed and honored!!!
