State Journal photographers Hannah Reel and Dylan Buell both won awards Saturday from the Kentucky News Photographer Association.

Reel won first-place in the picture package category for her coverage of 92-year-old Ruth Sullivan’s dream-come-true to try on wedding dresses.

Buell received an honorable mention in the multimedia category.

The contest, judged Saturday in Lexington, is open to all professional photographers in Kentucky, regardless of the size or type of publication they work for. Photos entered in the contest were all taken in 2013.
