Del Sol Photography – Contributors for the Huffington Post

We are proud to have our work shared with a global audience. Specifically, we would like to thank the Huffington Post for featuring us in so many articles and for constantly asking for our images to serve as features for their stories.  With stories of inspiration, emotion, and of course #lovewins. With many of our friends, family and clients also fans of Huffington Post, it is our honor to share these collective articles with you.

18 Times Wedding Photographers Knew They’d Captured Something Amazing

Family weddings are hard.  Nearly impossible as your years of pro experience and concentration is blown, your anticipation factor is lost, your ability to disconnect and observe is challenged to say the least.  When you don a camera for a family wedding, all you want to do is talk to your cousin, smile and laugh with your auntie or hug the neck of your grandmother after your father pushes her down the isle in a wheelchair.

Every photographer wishes and dreams for their pictures to be recognized. The end game is that photo lives on through this recognition, be it an international award or a publication in a major news outlet.   When I got the news that this photo scored a FIRST PLACE in a photojournalism contest… I couldn’t believe it.  I was honored and feel very lucky to be able to memorialize my late grandmother this way, it is the highest honor a wedding photo can get!

A few years ago at a family wedding, my dear grandmother (Cora Lee Adcock) casually walked in front of her great-granddaughter’s wedding dress for a lipstick adjustment.  In this moment, I made a photographic memory that will forever serve as a legacy for me and my family.  She was 92 when I took this photo and sadly she passed away the next year. The photo was later honored with a 1st Place Award by the International Society Of Professional Wedding Photographers for the category of “Wedding Dress” Matt
