Rising Stars| 2021 | Rangefindermag
I have great news to share with you!
I was chosen by New York magazine Rangefindermag as one of the 30 Rising Stars of wedding photography in the world.
When I got the first email that said, “Congratulations! You are officially invited to submit to the contest Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography 2021”, the emotion was indescribable, a dream come true!
Then came the most difficult time, to understand what photos to send, in what order, what story to tell etc..
The requests were to send 30 photos of different weddings, but they had a common thread, and they talked about us as photographers, a bit like imagining to pull a line and make the report of my wedding photography until that moment.
Help, thousands of photos and lots of weddings to comb through!
I tried to tell a story that had a logical thread, while taking pictures from different marriages, what do you think, did I succeed?
The day I sent the selection I felt a mixture of feelings, that folder I left in the computer for a few days, and the day before the deadline I found the courage and clicked send!
And from there began a long wait lasting two months …
And finally…”Hi Martina, The judges have made their decision: You are part of the Rangefinder 30 Rising Stars of Wedding Photography this year! Congratulations!!! “
It was really great, but very difficult at the same time, I had to keep this secret for almost a month until December 1st 2022, when the winners were announced!
Super curious to know there were my colleagues who were experiencing these emotions at the same time as me.
It was truly unforgettable ..
Here is the full list of winners: https://www.rangefinderonline.com/rising-stars/
I let you continue the story through the images, this is my world!
