PWPC Fall 2014 Wedding Photography Contest Judge: Peter Kalogeropoulos   
Peter K   Peter K Photography    (Montreal, QC)

Both of my parents were born in Greece but I was born and raised in beautiful Montreal, the perfect backdrop for an emerging photographer.
I fell in love with photography a few years ago and it has been a passion for me ever since. In addition to being a creative outlet for my artistic side, photography has brought many opportunities to meet all kinds of people that I've thoroughly enjoyed working with.
I'm a driven, motivated individual and a detail-oriented perfectionist. I wake up everyday excited to be doing what I love and ready for a new challenge.
PWPC Fall 2014 Wedding Photography Contest Judges: Vivian Yue & Ken Ko   
Vivian Yue & Ken Ko   Yueko Image    (Calgary, AB)

Calgary based award-winning photographers who received their education in Calgary. They are a super fun wife-and-husband team who loves to travel and be adventurous. Their work have been featured in numerous galleries and published in many magazines, and blogs. They are also members of the Best of Wedding Photography Association. Vivian loves weddings because she is helplessly romantic, but Ken is helplessly technical. When Venus meets Mars, they create artwork that is unique, glamorous and with edgy touches. Their logo is a Chinese word "Yi", which means 'memory'. The word is made of two parts: the left symbolizes 'heart' and right symbolizes 'meaningfulness'. They chose the word because they believe in creating something emotional and stylish for each wedding. Each of their multicultural weddings was documented with combination of photojournalism, Asian and Western wedding photography philosophies.
