Wedding photographer Charlie McLarty, was awarded 8th place for photo 53241 in the Details category for the WPJA's 2006 Fall.
The WPJA contest judges presented Charlie McLarty, a 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 really nice scene-setter. A great opening to a story about the wedding. I like the framing too - including a lot of the sky is a nice way to balance the frame. I'm also glad the photographer took this approach instead of getting much closer to the sign itself.
