Portrait Palooza | February 2016

This Febraury, Portrait Palooza was hosted by the Hall and Garden at Landmark. We would like to thank all of the vendors who came together to make this happen. Without their help and time, we would never have been able to pull off such a successful event. Portrait Palooza is a fun, annual event created by the Wedding & Portrait Society as a challenge for professional photographers.

How it works: The WPS secures a local wedding venue, gowns, bouquets, hair and make-up artists and the brides.

Whose Invited: WPS photographers and non member photographers.

The Catch: Like on a real wedding day, there is pressure, chaos, and things you can’t control. Each photographer has only 10 minutes to create that perfect shot, while dealing with another photographer trying to do the same. After the event, each photographer submits 2 of their favorite images from the night and the vendors vote to choose the winning image.

The Prize: $100
The winner and his/her winning image will be displayed here. Stay tuned to see who the winner is!

Thank you once again to all the vendors. Please support them because they support The WPS.
