Wedding photographer Marine Fonteyne, was awarded 2nd place for photo 52956 in the Silhouettes / Shadows and Light category for the WPJA's 2006 Fall.
The WPJA contest judges presented Marine Fonteyne, a Florida, 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
- When the bride is light and the groom isn't and you can use that graphic and light to define each, it just a matter of seeing it. Shooting this light, and composing it perfectly as a vertical, one of the few in this competition, it is not only a good moment it is a very symbolic image. Great job. Loved the photograph and it inspired me.
