I recently entered one of my favorite photos from one of my favorite Chicago locations into a contest hosted by The Knot. This is the email I received the other day: “Thompson Wedding Photography has been selected as the grand prize winner in The Knot Local Hot Spots Photo Contest. Not only did brides vote you as having the best local Chicago wedding photo, but the editors of The Knot chose your image as the best across the country!” Obviously I’m extremely excited about this and really honored to be selected. The winning photo (see below) will be featured in the Spring/Summer 2011 issue of The Knot Chicago magazine and will also appear as the signature image on The Knot Chicago home page. I also won an iPad which I will use to show off the rest of my portfolio to prospective clients. Thanks to two of my favorite clients, Katie and Stephen, for taking time away from their wedding reception to make this photo happen.
