Saturday night, we were honored to receive some pretty rad awards for our photography (& design) work (refer to iPhone pic above) at the 2013 AAF Knoxville Addys. Although I was busy photographing a lovely wedding for Bob & Jaime, my bride, Joy, went on my behalf alongside Finch Photo team members, Meg Prewitt, our rockin’ Biz Director, & Alison Nation, Designer Extraordinaire. They had a wonderful time at the 48th Addy Awards Gala. Below is a brief description of the Addys:
“The Knoxville ADDY® Awards is the first tier of the three-tiered National ADDY® Awards, the advertising industry’s largest recognition of creative excellence.
