What Makes an Award-Winning Wedding Photographer Worth It?

Hey there, soon-to-be newlyweds! Your wedding day is a monumental event, filled with love, joy, and countless memories. Capturing these moments beautifully is essential, and that’s where award-winning wedding photography comes into play. At Chris Pritchard Studios, we specialize in creating stunning, timeless images that tell your unique love story.


Here’s why hiring an award-winning wedding photographer is worth every penny.


Unmatched Expertise and Creativity

Award-winning photographers bring a level of expertise and creativity that sets them apart. They have a keen eye for detail and a unique artistic vision, ensuring your wedding photos are not just beautiful but also deeply meaningful. Their experience in various wedding scenarios allows them to capture the best moments effortlessly, making your photos truly standout.


The PPA (Professional Photographers Association of America) provides a platform for photographers to continually improve themselves, and have their work judged by the best photographers in the world.


Photographers are judged on 12 elements of what makes a great image win awards.


Impact, technical excellence, creativity, style, composition, presentation, color balance, center of interests, lighting, subject matter, technique, story telling.

Our goal is to make sure all 12 of these elements are present in every photograph we make. By challenging our creative limits, the 12 elements push you to be your best to get all of the elements aligned in one image.

When you hire an award-winning photographer, you’re guaranteed high-quality images that will stand the test of time. These professionals use top-of-the-line equipment and advanced editing techniques to produce photos that are sharp, vibrant, and flawless. Your wedding album will be a timeless keepsake, cherished for generations.


Timeless images don't contain trendy filters and creative aspects that modify the originality of the photograph. By hiring an award winning professional you can be sure the quality of your images don't look dated.
