Wedding photographer Philip Thomas, was awarded 9th place in the Parents category for the WPJA's 2009 BRIDES Magazine.
- In a truly touching shot, a mother and bride stand cheek to cheek. Looking towards each other, with their eyes closed, you can almost picture them swaying back and forth.

Well crafted to show the environs but not to lose the importance of the emotion shared between the two.
