I have a wonderful announcement!
I got an acceptance letter today - I am officially now a member of the Artistic Guild of the Wedding Photo Journalist Association!
I previously applied with the WPJA (not the Artistic Guild last time) and I wasn't accepted. They have a very stringent application process and list of guidelines you must adhere to. I didn't make it before, and I finally decided it was time to apply again.
I'm thrilled. A lot of phenomenal photographers apply for this organization and either are denied several times, or don't get accepted at all. I am honored and humbled to have made it. :)
