The results of this year’s first round of Wedding Photojournalist Association (WPJA) contest are in and one of my wedding photos won new award! The category was Reception and the photo won 4th place! You can see the photo below. I’m also really thankful for the judge’s comment regarding the photo: “I can’t decide if the groom is in the demolition business or if this cake just fell apart… yet the earnestness on the groom’s face is telling. Strong fundamental photography techniques are in place here… the biggest being capturing exactly the right moment.”
Congratulations to all of my colleagues who placed with their photos in this round. You can see the whole winning gallery at the official WPJA website.
