New Fearless award, Top 50 Fearless photographers in 2015

Fearless Award Vlad Lodoaba

The latest Fearless results are out and I’m very excited to have an image among the winners. What’s even more amazing for me – with a total of 4 awards, this puts me in the Top 50 Fearless Photographers for 2015. It’s something I wouldn’t even have imagined a few years ago and seeing some other names on the list, some of the most hard-working and talented wedding photographers around the world, makes the distinction even more humbling.

The winning image is from Laura + Tiberiu’s wedding. In Christian Orthodox weddings, the crowning of the bride is an important moment of the ceremony. Because the crown is one-size-fits-all, it always needs adjustments and there is a moment of hesitation: is the crown too tight? Too loose? Will it stay in place?

As much as I’m excited about the award, I also know that the 2016 wedding season is around the corner, so it’s time for me to get back to work :)

The full gallery of winning images is here.


Two Fearless awards this round (a story)

The lastest round of Fearless awards (Round 26, April 2015) was a wonderful surprise, bringing me two Fearless awards. One of the images was also a winner in the Humor category of ISPWP’s most recent competition (I wrote about it here). The other image, of E. and her dad walking towards the chuppah, is actually a photo that is very dear to me, so I was super happy when it received an award.
