Wedding photographer Scott Hopkins, was awarded 10th place for photo 49536 in the Emotion category for the WPJA's 2005 Fall.
- The smiles of the faces of the bride and groom shared with us the joy they had of getting married. I would have cropped the picture on the right side, though it wasn't distracting, it didn't add anything.
The WPJA contest judges presented Scott Hopkins, a South Carolina, United States wedding photographer, with this Master Piece Award as recognition for top wedding photojournalism in the industry.
The leading documentary wedding photographers in the world enter their best photos to the Wedding Photojournalist Association's photography competitions. They want their wedding reportage photographs to be evaluated and selected by some of the most notable and respected working picture editors and photojournalists in the news industry (these are not wedding photographers or other WPJA members judging their work). Winning these competitions is a true accomplishment for a wedding photographer.
