1. This was easily our winner. This photographer took a lot of time on this and got a variety of different shots. There was a solid progression of emotion and detail photographed throughout the day. Our favorite shot was the third photo (at night). This photographer is dedicated. 2. Nice, tight edit and great captions. 3. A nice change of pace to see an essay of this sort. Would have like a little bit more history in the captions and maybe a tighter detail.
