WPJA....officially accepted!

I just found out this morning that PicturesbyTracy was officially accepted into the Wedding Photojournalist Association! I am so incredibly flattered and excited to have been accepted! According to WPJA, only less than 5% of photographers applying the membership is qualified.

In the WPJA's own words, here is a description of the association:

"Leading the way in Wedding Photojournalism, WPJA represents the most discriminating talent around the world technically, creatively and visually. Qualified members hold industry-leading standards, skills and business integrity. IMPORTANT NOTE: Membership in the WPJA depends entirely on photographers meeting our high standards for inclusion. One CANNOT simply pay his/her way into the WPJA.

Thanks for sharing in my celebration!
