2016 Film Photographer of the Year
Jeremy Chou
@jeremychouphotography

I believe when my clients hire me, they are hiring me for my ability to tell their stories through my lens.  Being a fine art wedding photographer it means I take the time to create a storyline for my clients that will be truly magical. I want my clients to look back on one of the biggest days of their lives and relive each and every moment. Every wedding is unique, and offers an opportunity for a love story to be told in completely different ways. My job is to document those fleeing in between moments, encapsulate memories in a tangible form, so my clients can pass down their memories for future generations. Being a film photographer, I love the ethereal feeling a film image provokes. Film has made me a better photographer and really forces me to conceptualize an image before shutter is clicked.

 

 

 

 

2016 Emerging Film Photographer of the Year
Callie Manion

I have always been a creative person and have attempted my hand at almost everything—but I quickly realized my truest & most rewarding outlet for creative expression is through my photography. I am a dreamer, beauty seeker, + big believer in love. I find inspiration from my surroundings, beautifully written verse, and the people I photograph. I’ll occasionally tell my clients that I fall a little bit in love with everyone I photograph and it’s true! I seek out your most beautiful + vulnerable aspects in order to capture your true beauty in an art form. I also pay great attention to detail and organization + these strengths combine well to make me a great wedding photographer. I will be very organized and help your special day run as smoothly as possible, while also capturing moments that will live on forever in beautiful photographs!
