Two months of having to keep this a secret and we can now finally shout it from the rooftops.
We’ve been named one of the 30 Rising stars of wedding photography by a New York based photography magazine Rangefinder. Getting the biggest and most prestigious award a wedding photographer can get in the world and getting such an international recognition for our work feels like a dream. Even though we’ve known this for quite a few weeks now it hasn’t fully sunk in and it’s hard to find words to describe our feelings. Being on the same list that so many of the famous wedding photographers have been in the past few years feels surreal.
This is our second year of getting the nomination and when we got the email back in July we were surprised but excited that they must see something special in our work that they invited us again this year. Putting together the 30 photo submission was a lot easier than last year because we knew exactly what we want to achieve with it. To show us. Our work, our style, our voice. And when we got the “Congratulations, you’re a Rising Star” email we were speechless. Had to read it twice and a few times again the next day. There were hugs, laughter and tears of happiness.
We would like to thank each and every couple that chose us to capture their special day. It’s because of you that we can share this news. It’s an honor to be present on such special days in people’s lives and and honor to be able to document it.
The biggest thank you goes also to both of our parents for believing in us and letting us work hard on our dreams(and for puppysitting Zoja when we’re away). Our path is a bit different than what people would expect but we wouldn’t change it for the world.
We’re honored and proud to be the first wedding photographers from Slovenia that got this prestigious award.
