PDN Is Using My Contest Winning Image From Last Year To Promote Their New Contest by Bradley Hanson

While debating whether or not to enter this contest again, I noticed my image from last year being used to promote it. The contest began in 2003 as "Top Knots" and will now be known as "Celebrations" to have a broader theme.

My speciality is shooting family portraits in an unposed, natural style and wedding photojournalism. I photograph weddings as they happen rather than direct the action, which is often referred to as documentary style wedding photography. I’ve photographed weddings in Minneapolis, St. Paul, Seattle and many countries around the world.

First Place Winner In 2016 PDN "Top Knots" Wedding Photography Contest by Bradley Hanson

First place in "Wedding Day" 2016 PDN Magazine Top Knots wedding contest

I am honored and excited to announce that for the 4th time, I have a winning image in the PDN Magazine (Photo District News) Top Knots international wedding contest. I had a winning image in the 2004 issue and two images in the 2005 issue, but because of a number of life changes including relocating my business from Seattle to Minneapolis, I didn't enter again until this year. The selected image was one of my favorites of all time, taken from a late 2015 wedding in Taylors Falls, MN during what felt like a nearly perfect day.
