Winning Image In The Olympus Summer Sun Photo Contest by Bradley Hanson

While traveling in Seattle for a wedding. I was notified that I won this photo contest (judged by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist and National Geographic photographer, Jay Dickman). The real credit goes to the sweet, animated twins that I had the privilege of photographing that night for Breah Jawor and her beautiful family at Mahtomedi Beach, MN at sunset.

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.
