Wedding photographer Linda Wallace, was awarded 3rd place for photo 102271 in the Transportation category for the WPJA's 2006 Winter.
2006 Winter Judges
- Pros: The gesture between bride and the father (I assume) are what make this work. The gesture, though about his appearance, seems rather gentle and loving. Cons: The out of focus headrest at the lower left really distracts, both covering part of the bride and drawing the viewer's attention away. I love this image. The tenderness and gesture of the bride towards her father is revealing of their relationship. This kind of subtle and intimate image requires great reflexes.
The WPJA contest judges presented Linda Wallace, 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.
