Wedding photographer Shalista Anderson, was awarded 9th place for photo 52616 in the Ceremony category for the WPJA's 2006 Fall.
The WPJA contest judges presented Shalista Anderson, a South Dakota, 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.
2006 Fall Judges
- This is a beautiful photo. The photographer must have invested time to make sure this shot worked. The photo would not have been nearly as nice if the man was too close to the bride or if the brides flowers were not as defined.
