Cami Grudzinski: Starting my day taking a
good look at this December Rangefinder
magazine article... It’s an invitation to WPPI
and tells how WPPI changed someone’s
life. Beautiful story! I would be skeptical if I
didn’t know that girl, but I know her well...
and also know that’s just a tiny piece of
her story...because I’m that girl... That’s MY
story! It brings me to tears to realize that
my story is being shared to try to tell others
they too can change their lives. WPPI is my
source of education, inspiration and my
main support system. My dreams were not
quite this big, but things are happening
because I committed to it and worked
really damn hard. I am thrilled to still be a
newbie, it’s only my fourth year, and still
it’s just the beginning! I’m coming back for
more classes, volunteer more and to see
the people that have helped me get this far.
Thank you for sharing my story, Rangefinder.
I can’t wait!!!

rfwppi: Upon entering the house where the bride
was getting ready, @damienmilan_photographer
noticed it was pretty cramped and dark, but he
also spotted a little corridor that looked promising
for portraits. “I closed the door at the end of the
corridor and asked her to stand by the other door,
as there was some beautiful light coming out of
the bathroom window. The reflection in the frame
on the wall was a bonus, and I personally love the
honest and thoughtful expression on Alex’s face in
anticipation of her wedding ceremony.”;#RfPOTD
jamiedeephoto: I love the simplicity. So lovely.
shutterandstone: The reflection in the picture
looks like a painting. Beautiful.
dani.k.king: That's really nice, @damienmilan_
photographer I love seeing the beauty other
photographers can make out of unpredictable
wedding day spaces! This is what makes a
rfwppi: The groom was anxiously waiting in the living room to see his
bride while she was getting the finishing touches on her makeup, and
photographers Erika and Lanny of @twomannstudios suddenly noticed the
potential for this composition. There was no guarantee that both the bride
and groom would fit naturally within the frame, but after waiting patiently for a
few moments, the photographers witnessed this unfold organically.;#RfPOTD
cozbijean: Well done. And I liked the emphasis on “witnessing” and letting it
priceburrphotography: What a cool capture! You can totally feel the energy
of the moment.
Jeff Watkins: No I have not, but I
accidentally ate the edibles without
knowing that they were edibles while I was
photographing a wedding… That made for
an interesting couple of hours.
Blue Jar Photography: October 2018, NJ.
Very interested to see this play out. The
bride took me aside to give me a heads up
to make sure I was comfortable with it.
Carl Sidor: The couple can do whatever they
wish so long as the check doesn’t bounce.
Crissy Everhart Barmby: Haven’t yet, but
just putting myself out there as willing!
